The M/S Freya was originally built in 1981 for the Swedish Maritime Administration as the lighthouse maintenance vessel M/S Fyrbjörn. M/S Freya is built to Lloyd´s class for unrestricted trade and has an ice class of 1A. In 2011 she was taken over by the Swedish Coast Guard as a multipurpose vessel. In 2015 Master Mariner AB brought the ship and named her "Freya af Göteborg" and converted her to an expedition ship.
For diving and snorkeling expeditions, there is a compressor (Bauer KA 14-55B) and a special diving ladder available.
The M/S Freya has a capacity for 12 passengers and 2 guides in seven twin cabins with port holes. Six of the cabins have private shower and WC and four have a third pullman bed that can be folded down if required.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
