In 1998, Southern Sea Ventures became the first company to conduct commercial sea kayaking trips in Antarctica. Ever since this time exploration in the polar regions has been a passion of ours that we have been able to share with so many like minded adventurers. We are proud to announce that we are now heading back to the polar regions under our own steam with a range of select charters to the polar regions. We are providing an even broader range of ways to experience these destinations with hiking, cruising, skiing and of course kayaking options available. Our chosen ship, the Polar Pioneer, is one of the smallest passenger vessels operating in these locations.

With only 50 passengers, this sturdy ship is nimble and quick to load and unload so you can maximise your adventure. She was built for the high latitudes and has safely sailed thousands of passengers to the Arctic and Antarctic for their experience of a lifetime. With only 50 spaces available onboard not only can we  land at any location and you can be assured of a personalised experience and a high level of care by our dedicated team of polar experts no matter if you are kayaking, hiking, cruising or skiing

Join us and our team of passionate and highly experienced,  professional polar guides as we venture to the far flung corners of the world by foot, zodiac, kayak and on skis.
