At Pelorus, we draw on our extensive expertise in designing land and sea-based experiences in remote locations and challenging environments. We have a dedicated Yacht Expeditions department run by a team with vast experience on board yachts and in the yachting sector. We work closely with the yachts’ captains to understand the limitations of the vessel in order to execute an experiential yachting holiday that is safe, seamless, completely unique.
As members of IAATO (International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators), Pelorus are licensed to operate in Antarctica and are committed to protecting and respecting the region’s fragile ecosystem. We only work with expedition leaders, guides, naturalists, and ice pilots whose qualifications fully comply with IAATO regulations and our Antarctic yacht expeditions always adhere to IAATO legal requirements such as not disturbing wildlife, allowing no more than 100 visitors ashore and ensuring activities have only a minor or transitory impact on the environment.
With conservation and ecotourism at the heart of what we do, Pelorus also supports carbon offsetting through our partners at The World Land Trust and can assist in making your Antarctic yacht expedition fully carbon neutral.
If you want to take your Antarctic yacht adventure to the next level, Pelorus can curate an expedition that combines scientific research, conservation, and luxury yachting in a whole new way. We can connect you with scientists looking to carry out important research in Antarctica, making your yacht charter not only a spectacular holiday, but a worthwhile conservation or research trip.
