What do our expeditioners think?


Absolutely, our Photography Guides and Special Guest Photographers will be conducting engaging and informative photography lectures onboard.

Yes, our photography experts will be on-hand to help with any settings and equipment questions. However, prior to setting sail, we encourage you to familiarise yourself with your chosen equipment.

The aim is to ensure that you don’t get lost in a sea of settings but are ready to seize captivating shots.

Polar regions

The polar regions offer unique wildlife photography experiences. In Antarctica, there are many opportunities to encounter penguins, seals and whales, and occasionally we may even spot leopard seals or orcas.

In the Arctic, we’ll venture near nesting bird colonies, past massive glaciers and around large icebergs, however, we maintain a safe distance from polar bears and walruses. Our guides carry rifles and flare guns in the Arctic to ensure your safety against polar bears.

Temperate regions

Expeditioners in wild temperate regions can encounter diverse wildlife, including seals and basking sharks. You will have the opportunity to photograph some of the largest seabird colonies in the northern hemisphere.

Tropical regions

The superb wildlife-viewing opportunities are endless in the astonishingly biodiverse nature reserves we visit. Here you will have the chance to photograph marine and land mammals, coral reefs, tropical fish, sea birds and an astonishing range of rainforest birds. 

The ship’s Captain and Expedition Leader always maintain close contact to ensure a safe expedition experience.
