Our Snow Hill Promise

Our Snow Hill Promise – Make it to Snow Hill or get 50% off a 2024 Voyage

We made history at Snow Hill Island. We were the first to reach its Emperor penguin rookery, offering one of the most exclusive wildlife encounters on the planet.

Our Expedition Team has the deepest experience in the industry, bringing more people on more successful Snow Hill landings than anyone else.

So we know Snow Hill. With the best team, onboard Ultramarine with its unmatched helicopter capability, our goal is to get you there at least once.

But we also know that it’s one of the most daunting destinations in the polar regions, where every explorer must embrace the unexpected.

If conditions mean that even we can’t land you to visit the Emperor penguins, you will still revel in the once-in-a-lifetime wonders of the Weddell Sea and set foot on the seventh continent’s eastern Peninsula, but we’ll go to end of the earth to make it up to you.

And that includes both ends of the earth: 50% off any applicable on select voyages departing between January 1st, 2024, and December 1st, 2024, booked and confirmed with full payment before February 1st, 2024.
