Atlas Ocean Voyages invites modern explorers to embark on expeditions aboard intimate yachts in relaxed luxury with fewer than 200 fellow explorers. Itineraries enable curious global travelers to immerse themselves in both iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations that are inaccessible for larger vessels. Polar Expeditions offer the opportunity to visit Antarctica, the Arctic & Norwegian Fjords, and Iceland & Greenland. Epicurean Expeditions focus on the gastronomy and culture of the Mediterranean & Greek Isles, and British Isles & Northern Europe.

Conscious Navigation

As responsible global citizens, we set out to lessen our footprint in the breathtaking destinations we visit. We always make an effort to show respect for all, from the ecosystems to the wildlife we encounter. Taking these careful actions helps us keep the environment thriving for today’s explorers and future generations.

Our intimate yachts realize the possibilities of environmental stewardship with the latest hybrid power management and propulsion systems, maximizing fuel efficiency and consuming as low as one-fifth the fuel compared to conventional cruise-ship systems, reducing our impact on the environment.

We minimize underwater noise that stresses marine wildlife by using a hydro-jet propulsion system that allows us to cruise virtually silent up to five knots for incomparable, up-close encounters while keeping the sensitive ecosystem in mind. It’s also our responsibility to prevent damage to the fragile ecosystems on ocean floors. That’s why we avoid using anchors to maintain ship position by using a GPS-based Dynamic Position System.

It’s important to make the effort to keep waterways clear for a cleaner environment. By building our yachts with the latest and most advanced waste management and water treatment plant in the cruise industry, we take the proper steps to control waste on board. That includes storing litter that cannot be repurposed or reclaimed in a dedicated hold until landing, where it will be disposed of responsibly. Plus, we offer still and sparkling water delivered in a FREE reusable water bottle on board to help reduce waste.


How active do I have to be to sail?
Our expeditions offer a variety of shore excursions and immersions, ranging in activity level from mild to vigorous. You can be as active or relaxed as you wish.

Do I need to have previous experience for kayaking in Antarctica?
You do not need previous kayaking experience. However, the onboard crew will provide a brief tutorial for proper use of the equipment that will also help determine your physical ability to operate it safely and properly before embarking on a kayaking, paddling or standup paddling excursion.

How does camping in Antarctica work?
Before you step ashore for your camping excursion, the expedition team will assess the area and come to an agreement. Then, they’ll begin setting up or help you dig your own camping hole for sleeping. If conditions are not ideal, then the excursion may be delayed or canceled.

Will the campsite be set up for us on an Antarctica camping excursion?
Guests often like to dig their own camping holes for the full expedition experience, but it is not obligatory. Our expedition team members will offer assistance in digging your camping hole and replacing the snow at the end of the excursion.

Do you offer medical services?
Atlas Ocean Voyages’ yachts do have a Medical Center staffed with a licensed doctor for non-emergency and emergency services. These services are available at an additional cost. The Medical Center is designed for temporary illnesses or accidents.

Do you offer kids' clubs or babysitters onboard?
Because of the intimate nature of our yachts, we have a limited number of staterooms that can accommodate children. As such we do not offer special kids’ programs or provide childcare on board.

What is your onboard smoking policy?
Our guests’ and crew’s health, welfare and comfort are top priority for us. We have designated areas to accommodate for smoking and do not permit smoking in suites, staterooms or on balconies.

What’s the dress code on board?
Aboard an Atlas Ocean Voyages’ expedition, we want you to be comfortable and recommend yacht-club casual attire. During the day, and depending on your destination and the weather, guests will be dressed in casual touring or resort attire. At night, you will find most guests dressed for casual relaxation in slacks, skirts or dresses, with sweaters or jackets optional.

Will there be formal nights?
We do not have formal nights, and recommend yacht-club casual for your evening attire. You may wear a blazer, sport coat or dress if you desire.

Can I use my drone, quadcopter, UAV, etc. during an Antarctica expedition?
The International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) does not allow the use of drones, quadcopters, UAVs, and other such hardware for recreational purposes from the yacht, during scheduled landings, or on excursions. Furthermore, the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands government has banned the use of such recreational technologies in their territories.

Is an Antarctica expedition possible for disabled travelers?
While we aim to make our voyages inclusive for all guests, Antarctica is a destination that presents challenging elements. Our Antarctica journeys also use Zodiacs to transport guests between shore and yacht, so if you have a disability that does not easily allow for such transportation, we cannot serve you well for an Antarctica expedition at this time.

Can I bring children with me on an Antarctica expedition?
Atlas is pleased to offer accommodations for children age eight years and older – accompanied at all times throughout the voyage – for our Antarctica expeditions.

Do you offer open seating?
Our dining venues are designed for open seating; however, reservations are required in Alma Alfresco and 7-AFT Grill. Reservations may be made once on board.

Do you have a minimum age requirement?
Our minimum age requirement is 12 months for Epicurean Expeditions and 8 years of age for Polar Expeditions. Additionally, children 2 years and younger are FREE on all shoreside excursions on Epicurean Expeditions.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
