Expedition ships all have fewer than 100 guests and have a greater emphasis on maximising time off the vessel or out on deck.  The expedition team works closely with the ship’s captain and crew to get you out exploring on the Zodiac dinghies and on shore as much as possible. Most voyages also offer kayaking.  Cabins are simple and comfortable, the food excellent.  The ships are stable, fast and manoeuvrable.
