Facts About Antarctica21
Antarctica21 has been guiding travelers to Antarctica since 2003, when they pioneered the Antarctic air-cruise model. They are based in Punta Arenas, Chile and their expedition cruises include itineraries such as Antarctica, Cape Horn, Falkland Islands, and South Georgia. Currently they only operate cruises during the summer season in the southern hemisphere.
They focus on providing small groups of active travelers with an expedition experience. In fact, their ships carry under 100 guests each. Until they built their first expedition vessel, Magellan Explorer in 2019, they operated two charter vessels for their summer season, the Ocean Nova and the Hebridean Sky.
The Ocean Nova is an expedition vessel that was built in 1992. It has a strengthened hull and was fully refurbished in 2006. It has a capacity for 67 passengers. Hebridean Sky was also built in 1992 and was refurbished in 2005. It accommodates 75 passengers. Both of these vessels are chartered by Noble Caledonia when not chartered by Antarctica21. Comparatively, Magellan Explorer is owned by Antarctica21.
In 2019, their branding changed from Antarctica XXI to Antarctica21.
Their technical management is provided by V.Ships Leisure.
