Introducing the Ocean Explorer

The Ocean Explorer (2021) is the sister ship of the Greg Mortimer (2019). They are in the same award-winning Infinity-class of vessels, alongside our newest ship, the Sylvia Earle (2022). The Infinity-class has set new standards for expedition cruise vessels and received numerous awards for its eco-friendly design and construction.

Accommodating just 134 expeditioners, the Ocean Explorer was purpose-built for expedition travel to the world’s most remote destinations. This small ship is outfitted with the latest cutting-edge technology, sustainability and navigation capabilities, including ULSTEIN X-BOW® technology for a smooth journey and increased fuel efficiency.

The Ocean Explorer offers modern Nordic interior design and state-of-the art amenities for maximum passenger comfort – making it the ultimate base camp for adventures across the globe.

Onboard, visit the gym or enjoy the Jacuzzi after a rewarding day of exploring. 

Travelling by small ship means that you can join every shore excursion, and make the most out of your time in some of the most wild and remote destinations on the planet.
