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.
