There's a feeling you get as we leave the hustle and bustle of the port behind. Things get quiet. The world seems to slow down a little. We are heading out into the big blue yonder, where nature sets our pace. Spending time in wild places can change a person. There's a sense of connection you get from sailing to the beat of the ocean, watching grand old albatrosses soar around the ship. We hope our journeys will create lifelong ambassadors for the preservation of the wonderful natural environments we visit. As the world changes around us, we aim to travel respectfully. Our voyages are about more than discovering beautiful places and wildlife. They're about coming to understand more deeply how these natural systems work, what holds them in balance and how we can support them. Travelling on an expedition vessel is a chance to reset. To step into the world and truly be part of it. When the sun is out and the seas are calm, it's a breeze. But if the weather's rough and snow is blowing sideways, it can be a little trickier. Our advice? Take that step. Go outside. Nature never lets you down. Welcome to the real world.
