AE Expeditions, Sylvia Earle

AE Expeditions has launched its 2024-2025 Antarctic programme, featuring 25 voyages ranging from nine to 23 days in duration.

The line will visit the Antarctic Peninsula, Falkland Islands, South Georgia and – new for this season – the Chilean fjords.

The fjords will be featured in two itineraries – a 14-day fly/sail Antarctic Explorer voyage, departing 1 March 2025, and a 13-day Spirit of Antarctica expedition, departing 13 March 2025.

Also new is the In Shackleton’s Footsteps cruise, a 20-day itinerary that retraces the voyage of the Endurance, venturing into the Weddell Sea and then onto Elephant Island, the outpost where Shackleton and his men made landfall after 497 days at sea.

A dedicated photography itinerary will also depart in November 2024, with on-board lectures and assistance from professional photographers.

AE Expeditions delivering ‘adventure and exploration’

AE Expeditions EMEA managing director Jos Dewing said: “We have just completed a hugely successful 22/23 Antarctic season and our 23/24 Antarctic season is already selling well with several departures almost at capacity.

“Our 24/25 Antarctic season is looking like our most adventurous yet.”

The company’s chief marketing officer Hayley Peacock-Gower added: “I am beyond thrilled to release our most comprehensive Antarctica programme for 24/25.

“The season is packed full of adventure and exploration with a variety of ways for travellers to truly explore Antarctica.

“We have pioneered purpose-driven exploration for more than 32 years and this season combines a unique mix of itineraries – returning favourites, new itineraries and a collection of special themed expeditions.

“We aim to open travellers up to exploration and push the boundaries of adventure while deepening connections to the natural world through our off-ship multiple daily excursions, our extensive range of activities and participative citizen science projects.”

Aurora Expeditions rebranded as AE Expeditions in the UK at the end of last year.

At the time, the company said the new name “embodies the founding principles and ethos of its global company”.
