Expedition ship "Spirit of Enderby"

The Spirit of Enderby is a wonderful small ice-class expedition vessel. In March 2013, it was completely re-equipped with the expectation of portable accommodation of no more than 50 passengers in two-seater boats. For the convenience of passengers, the ship has a bar, a cozy salon, a large lecture hall and a library with a collection of thematic literature

The spacious captain's bridge is always open for passengers. From it you can admire stunning views of icebergs and coastal landscapes. In order not to miss any moment of the trip, wildlife and marine animals can also be observed from the open decks of the ship.

The captain and crew of "Spirit of Enderby" are experienced sailors, true enthusiasts of expedition travel. During landings, travelers are accompanied by qualified guides and naturalists. For landings, a fleet of motorized inflatable boats is used, which are simple and convenient to use. With their help, the expedition members easily get to amazingly beautiful, but hard-to-reach places.

Spirit of Enderby is an ice-class vessel specially equipped to explore regions where navigation of larger ships is impossible.

It's important to know

Personal equipment you need for the tour

The main factor in choosing clothes on board is comfort. Clothing can be casual or informal. Take wind and waterproof outerwear with you. Do not take tight clothing with you that does not leave room for an air gap, which is an excellent insulator. Wool, silk and some modern synthetic fibers, such as polar fleece, retain heat better than cotton.

A few tips to help you feel comfortable on your expedition cruise:

  • do not dress too warmly to avoid sweating;
  • wear waterproof clothing made of a material that, nevertheless, will allow your body to "breathe" and thereby prevent moisture from condensing under clothing;
  • the legs and arms are most susceptible to cooling. Try to keep them dry and warm. It is a wise decision to take gloves to be ready for changes in the weather;
  • A person loses 90% of the heat when the head is cooled! Make sure your head is warm. Along with a hat that covers your ears and forehead, bring a hat or a hood that could, if necessary, cover the neck and chin;
  • a great idea to take a woolen or synthetic scarf: providing protection for the neck, it can be tied around the face if you have to move against the wind;
  • wear comfortable clothing. It is better to wear several light clothes than one warm one. Between the layers of clothing there will be a thin air gap, which, when the body temperature rises, serves as an excellent insulator;
  • wool and silk are preferable to cotton, because they hold warm air well. 
  • We also recommend fleece clothing, which is popular even among extreme travelers.

Check if you have taken everything:

  • a polar jacket will be given to you as a gift on board;
  • rubber boots will be rented to you on board;
  • warm underwear;
  • warm trousers (jeans are suitable for wearing on board and for excursions);
  • waterproof trousers for landings on boats and land walks (wear them over your regular trousers);
  • wool sweater or fleece jacket;
  • gloves;
  • hat
  • warm socks;
  • comfortable waterproof shoes with ribbed soles;
  • sneakers or boots. It is forbidden to wear flip-flops on board for safety reasons;
  • waterproof backpack for landings;
  • dark glasses with UV protection;
  • protective cream for the skin of the face and lips;
  • bathing suit;
  • camera and memory cards;
  • an extra pair of your optical glasses;
  • medicines prescribed by a doctor with a margin for a few extra days;
  • a plastic bag with a zipper or camera clip;
  • several T-shirts to wear on board and on landings;
  • binoculars for observing wild animals;
  • a set of batteries;
  • note pad and pen.
