This fantastic vessel prides itself on attention to detail. The team behind Hebridean Sky are deeply passionate about allowing their guests to access the very best that Antarctica has to offer and their guides, scientists and researchers on board are some of the best in the world.
Hebridean Sky, formerly called Sea Explorer, is a small, all-suite expedition vessel. She was built in 1992 and refurbished in 2005. In 2016 the ship underwent an extensive, multimillion-dollar renovation that transformed her into one of the finest small-ships in the world.
Hebridean Sky offers an exclusive and stylish base for adventurous exploration in Antarctica. Public areas include “The Club” lounge, a Library, a presentation lounge with audio-visual facilities, a dining room, an outdoor cafe, a medical clinic, a wraparound deck, and an elevator serving all passenger decks.
The ship has a fleet of 10 Zodiac boats as well as kayaks (booked in advance). Certain departures also offer guests the option to spend a night or two camping on land.
Each cabin features a separate sitting area, a private bathroom, a picture window and two twin beds that, upon request, can be joined to form a queen-size bed. A number of suites also include private balconies.
For those with little time to spare, Hebridean Sky can be accessed via a two hour flight over the Drake Passage and boarded directly in Antarctica.
