Antarctica Fly Cruise Hebridean Sky (Ex Sea Explorer)
Formerly named the Sea Explorer and built in 1992, the Hebridean Sky has an ice-strengthened hull and is prepared to navigate the icy waters along the coast of Antarctica. The vessel has recently undergone a multi-million dollar revamp and transformation to ensure travellers explore Antarctica in luxury and style. The small but resilient ship can enter areas that larger can’t access, for an incomparable experience and in a shorter time than other most other voyages. With a capacity of more than 100 passengers, the Hebridean Sky will hold only up to 71 guests on each Antarctica fly cruise so your experience can be intimate with the most space, privacy and comfort possible.
This Antarctica fly cruise begins when you take off from the ends of the earth in Patagonia and cross the legendary Drake Passage on the aircraft BAE-146, saving two days of travel in each direction. The aircraft holds up to 70 passengers and is designed for travel to rugged destinations.
