All penguins are created equal. All voyages are not.

Any number of ships can take you to Antarctica. And the incredible landscape, the wildlife, and Antarctica’s ethereal light – it will all be waiting for you regardless. Yes, even those adorable penguins! But how you experience this mysterious place and how deeply it touches you will depend in large part on who you travel with. Consider traveling with Polar Latitudes if:

You want the most immersive Antarctic adventure.

As luxurious as our ship is, we believe the greatest amenity we can offer you is Antarctica itself. For the most immersive experience, consider traveling with a company whose knowledge of this mysterious continent runs 12 seasons deep. We’ll show you the “insider” version of this incredible and often elusive part of the world. Explore All Itineraries

You prefer a small ship, more personalized experience.

Maybe you’re one of those people who wants to feel part of a smaller, more like-minded team; who enjoys a more personalized, stress-free adventure; and who likes the idea of being on a first name basis with your expedition team. These are just some of the things that only a small ship experience can deliver. Explore Our Ship

You’d rather be with a company that’s “been there, pioneered that.”

Our experience and environmental leadership in these waters are second to none. We were the first to bring a Citizen Science program onboard every voyage; the first to join and support the Polar Science Collective; the first to adopt a rigorous third-party training and accreditation system for our entire team; and the first to create a position of onboard passenger service manager – all to ensure each voyager has the safest and most experiential journey possible. More on Being First

You want the best performing team around you.

With more ships entering Antarctic waters, staffing them has become a challenge for many, but not for Polar Latitudes. The majority of our highly experienced onboard and expedition teams return to us year after year. They share a passion for Antarctica, and perform like the familiar, well-rehearsed team they are. All of which adds up to a flawlessly delivered and ultimately unforgettable Antarctic adventure for you. Meet the Team

And yeah, you’d like it to be fun, too.

Our standards of excellence and performance are the highest in the industry. But we also place great value on the intangibles. We’re down to earth and fun to be around. You’ll come to know us by name, and we’ll undoubtedly share a few laughs (and maybe even a hug or two). People often say we make them feel like family. That’s something we’ve very proud of, since most of us really like our families.
