Our new small expedition ship, the Sylvia Earle, is designed for discovery and action-packed adventures in Antarctica, the Arctic & Beyond. To celebrate her launch in December 2022, we’re giving away a professional camera and lens package valued at over $1,700 (USD), to help you capture the action on your next adventure. Three lucky runners up will also receive the latest GoPro Hero 10.
To enter the draw, simply tell us in 25 words or less which Sylvia Earle expedition you want to go on and why*. Entries close at 5pm AEST on 31 August, 2022.
Carrying an average of 132 passengers, the Sylvia Earle is a comfortable base camp for unforgettable adventures. Smaller ships mean we are able to get you off the ship more to maximise your time in the natural world. Our experienced guides will help you capture all of the action in some of the wildest and most remote destinations on earth with our unique activity program that includes sea kayaking, snorkelling, SCUBA diving, photography and much more.
But the action doesn’t stop there! The Sylvia Earle is also a floating ambassador for the planet, named after Dr. Sylvia Earle and honouring six other pioneering women in conservation. Certified as 100% Carbon Neutral, she has a fully equipped Citizen Science Centre and Citizen Science programs to expand your knowledge and understanding of the places we visit. Our mission is to turn every passenger into a lifelong ambassador for the preservation and protection of the sacred places we explore.
