Arctic Wonders

A picture-perfect and remote archipelago high up in the Arctic, Svalbard is a bucket list adventure for many travellers. Explore Svalbard in Depth, during the short summer period (June-August), where guests can visit areas of the islands few people ever get to see; home to arctic wildlife including walrus’, polar bears and millions of seabirds.

For history lovers, and those looking for an epic Arctic adventure, follow in the footsteps of legendary Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, on the 30-day Complete Northwest Passage itinerary. Amundsen led the first expedition to successful traverse the passage between 1903-1906. The vessel follows a similar path, and highlights include searching for arctic wildlife and locations such as Pond Inlet, Dundas Harbour and Beechey Island, designated Canadian National Historic Site.

Antarctica and Beyond

Are you ready for a true bucket-list adventure? Look no further! Cruise along the beautiful Antarctic Peninsula discovering magnificent icebergs, glaciers and mountains home to Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins, humpback whales, orcas, crabeater and elephant seals. The 12-day Antarctic Explorer is a fantastic option for those looking to explore the peninsula without having to cross the Drake Passage by ship.

Alternatively, Natural Focus also offer itineraries that combine the Antarctic Peninsula with the magical island of South Georgia, often called “the Galapagos of the Poles” because of its amazing biodiversity. Discover its scenic beauty and open beaches where thousands of King penguins, elephant and fur seals congregate. Our polar specialists at Natural Focus are ready to help you plan the journey of a lifetime.

Your Vessels

Built in 2019, the Greg Mortimer was purpose-built to explore some of the most remote places on earth. It was also the first passenger vessel to use the highly regarded Ulstein X-BOW® design, that streamlines the vessel, so it cuts through swells, making the ship more comfortable and efficient when in the open ocean.

The vessel also boasts large observation decks and beautiful communal areas, including a state-of-the-art lecture theatre, dining room, bars and lounges. There is also a superb library onboard, filled with wildlife guidebooks, board games and a host of other books. Guests can also make the most of the spa, sauna and gym whilst there are two outdoor Jacuzzis on the top deck. The Greg Mortimer accommodates guests in 76 luxurious cabins that all have views of the ocean.

The vessel carries 15 zodiacs that are accessible via four sea-level launching platforms. There is also an activities platform at the rear of the ship, that is used for launching additional activities such as kayaking and diving. For unobstructed views, there are several hydraulic viewing platforms that fold out of the vessel for sightseeing.

The Greg Mortimer’s sister ship, the Sylvia Earle is almost identical in its design and amenities.

The sister ship of the Greg Mortimer, the Sylvia Earle will undertake her maiden voyage in November 2022. The vessel is almost identical to its sister ship, with a few slight differences. It uses the same Ulstein X-BOW® design, that streamlines the vessel so it cuts through swells, and accommodates the same number of guests (roughly between 130-140 per voyage).

A floating ambassador for the planet, the Sylvia Earle is certified 100% Carbon Neutral, and offers a fully equipped Citizen Science Centre, where guests can participate in Citizen science programs, to enrich their knowledge and experience. Named after Dr. Sylvia Earle, the vessel also pays tribute to pioneering conservationists with public decks named in their honour.

Like the Greg Mortimer, the vessel carries zodiacs that are accessible via four sea-level launching platforms. There is also an activities platform at the rear of the ship, that is used for launch additional activities such as kayaking and diving. For unobstructed views, there are several hydraulic viewing platforms that fold out of the vessel for sightseeing.

One major difference between the vessels, is the addition of a heated, saltwater open air swimming pool. Other top-end facilities include, Jacuzzis, gym, sauna and the Wellness Centre where guests can enjoy relaxing massages (additional cost).
