Expedition Cruising
Expedition cruising isn't really about cruising at all it is the full immersion into unforgettable destinations where you explore, discover, become enriched and join in unforgettable experiences by ship.

As the name implies, expedition cruising is full of exploration and adventure that takes you to some of the most remote places on the planet. The experience is more likely taken from the pages of National Geographic than a leisure travel magazine. Expedition ships and yachts are small, with shallow drafts that are able to inch closer to the less-visited and out of the way scenic wonders and ports. A week long expedition cruise can feel more like one big shore excursion.



Expedition ships are led by an 'expedition team' with an expedition leader and a support staff of naturalists and science oriented guest lecturers who provide presentations on the culture, history, geology, biology and geography of the destination and so much more.

The expedition leader has greater control over the day-to-day scheduling and destinations. This allows flexibility to change the course or alter plans to take advantage of weather, sea conditions and wildlife sightings. Who wouldn't want to follow a pod of whales or seals frolicking in the open waters and have the opportunity to see them up close?



Zodiac inflatable rafts are an important feature of expedition cruising. They allow guests to land on coast lines with no port or dock and often you will disembark on a beach or rocky shoreline unable to be accessed by conventional tender boats. Once ashore guests will be divided into smaller groups based on interests and level of fitness and excursions very depending on destination.

With the popularity of expedition cruising on the rise many luxury cruise lines are now offering their own expedition itineraries. Imagine zipping through artic icebergs and glaciers on a zodiac for the day and then returning to the ship and to be greeted by butlers handing you a steaming cup of hot chocolate. There are a large number or cruise lines offering expedition cruises to a number of destinations around the world. Whether you have dreamt of exploring Antarctica or discovering remote tribes along the Amazon River there is sure to be an expedition cruise to suit you.



Alaska
Arguably the favourite choice for cruise travellers looking to try an expedition cruise for the first time. Alaska has it all with glaciers, National parks, wide open spaces, gigantic glaciers, jagged mountains and an abundance of wildlife. An expedition cruise is the best way to capture this regions magnificence. Ships are smaller and can navigate the smaller areas larger ships cannot reach. Vessels almost always anchor overnight, at dawn or dusk, in the remote coves allowing guests to catch a glimpse of the native wildlife as they wander to the shore to hunt.

Ponant offers cruises along the South East Coast of Alaska. Do not miss this opportunity to discover Juneau, the Alaskan capital long inhabited by the Tlingit Indians, Skagway, or Haines, over whose colourful houses flies the majestic Bald Eagle. The expedition itineraries will introduce adventure seekers to wild and unspoilt nature that can be visited during unique stopovers, hikes or daily outings on Zodiac's.

Ponant's 5-star vessels are the perfect base to come back to after a day of exploring and their exceptional 'French Touch' creates a special atmosphere that ensures your expedition experience is authentic and sophisticated.





Antarctica
There is no more inhospitable place on earth and yet it is one of the most fascinating places to explore. With no native population within 800km's Antarctica is teaming with wildlife that calls the continent home. Antarctica is known as one of the coldest, windiest, and driest places on earth and will be an expedition experience that is absolutely unbeatable.

Glide around enormous icebergs by Zodiac, kayak among abundant marine life and walk along beaches covered in thousands of penguins. See research stations ashore and meet some of the researchers who are more than eager to talk about their work.

Seabourn has a reputation for offering guests an astonishing experience and what's more out of the ordinary that a visit to the South Pole. Aboard Seabourn quest you will be treated to all the luxuries and amenities clients love including their 5 star service. You will be treated to guidance and insight from skilled expedition staff, inspiring enrichment programs with special guest speakers as well as digital photography classes to capture all the amazing moments you will experience.



Arctic:
A cruise to the Arctic will create memories you will never forget. From abundant wildlife and dramatic landscapes, to the Midnight Sun follow in the wake of the Vikings to Greenland and Iceland. Hike and Zodiac among icebergs and remarkable tundra's. Explore rugged cliffs teaming with vast colonies of birdlife. Seals and walrus haul out on rocky outcrops and see Polar Bears roam freely. Whales spout and breach before your eyes. An expedition cruise to the Arctic will delve into the wonder of one of the world's most awe inspiring places.

Silversea offers expedition cruises to the arctic aboard their purpose built ice class ship, Silver Explorer. Visit the world's northern most permanent settlement, Zodiac through rugged fjords and around icebergs visiting Greenland, Norway, Iceland and more. This is a truly luxurious way to explore the Arctic as Silversea's ships are all-inclusive and the exceptional services aboard is second to none.



Expedition cruising doesn't stop there. Those looking to explore warmer climates can explore the Amazon River and look for monkeys, sloths and fascinating plant life then meet locals in the small villages that line the river where you can buy handicrafts and learn about the culture. The Galapagos Islands are a fascinating experience with an abundance of marine life. You will enjoy hiking the unique eco-system and learning about the geology, snorkelling with sea lions, hammer head sharks and pods of whales.

The South Pacific is a very popular cruise destination for many Australians but did you know you can also explore the islands and their cultures on an expedition cruise? Expeditions to the South Pacific offer a balance of nature and culture with a focus on the local cultures and learning about their ancestral lifestyles.

Exploring the rugged coastline and intricate waterways of Australia's vast north-western wilderness area is the adventure of a lifetime, even for travellers who have seen the world many times over. Highlights include ancient Aboriginal paintings, spectacular waterfalls, the dramatic tidal flow of Montgomery Reef, giant gorges, primeval saltwater crocodiles and the sheer scale of the Kimberley's red plains and rocky mountain ranges.



Expedition cruising is a truly unique way to explore some of the most amazing destinations on earth. For those looking for adventure, excitement and an unbeatable experience then you can't go past an expedition cruise. Call our team of Expedition Cruise Specialists today on 1800 121 187.
