About Pelagic Expeditions

If your project is off the trade routes and you want to have an adventure fully engaged with the wild side of nature, Pelagic Expeditions will facilitate your plans and take you to the destination of your dreams.

PLEASE NOTE COVID 19: Due to the continuing uncertainty of travel restrictions still very much in place, particularly in the southern South American theatre, we are not taking any bookings for visitors for Vinson of Antarctica for the 2021/22 and the 2022/2023 seasons. Projects that are willing to quarantine will be considered, i.e. film support and science support. Let’s see how things develop in the next six months.

The Pelagic fleet of two expedition sailing vessels is available for expedition charter and logistic support to high latitude destinations in both Hemispheres including but not limited to: Antarctica, Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn (temporarily suspended), the Falkland Islands, the island of South Georgia, the South Sandwich Islands, Norway, Spitsbergen, Iceland, Greenland, Labrador and Arctic Canada

Our main areas of operation. See Charter Options for more details
