In 2010 a group of very experienced polar specialists set about creating a new kind of expeditionary voyage company. “At the time the industry was trending towards larger ships” says John McKeon, President. “We bucked that trend because we wanted to deliver an experience characterized by a feeling of adventure & camaraderie, and that kind of atmosphere can only be sustained on smaller vessels.”
“At the same time we wanted to provide our guests with comfortable accommodations, and the unique touches that you’d find at a well-run boutique hotel, so we structured our business to accommodate those services.”
Now in its 9th season of operation, Polar Latitudes has succeeded in doing just that. The company offers all-suite accommodations (some with private balconies), as well as special touches like complimentary wine and beer with dinner, live music, and top-of-the-line complimentary voyage jackets from internationally renowned nautical gear provider Helly Hansen.
“We are currently operating two, sister-ship, both with the same atmosphere of adventure, camaraderie and comfort that our guests have come to expect. Both ships are nearly at capacity for 2019-2020” says McKeon, “and we have received a number of charter requests for the 2021-20 season. It’s gratifying to know that the kind of seasoned travelers who tend to visit Antarctica appreciate our vision and the effort that has gone into achieving it.”
