Magellan Explorer

Bienvenue à bord du Magellan Explorer, un navire de croisière d'expédition ultramoderne conçu pour l'Antarctique. Un voyage en Antarctique à bord du Magellan Explorer n'est pas comme les autres. Au lieu d'embarquer immédiatement sur votre navire de croisière et de passer de longues journées à traverser le passage de Drake pour atteindre l'Antarctique, vous prendrez un avion de deux heures au départ de Punta Arenas pour vous rendre directement sur le continent. Ce vol vous permettra de gagner du temps et de vous rendre directement sur les lieux de l'action en Antarctique. Une croisière aérienne Magellan Explorer est une croisière pionnière conçue pour l'aventure et pour votre confort.

Pour gérer l'impact sur l'environnement, le traité de l'Antarctique limite le nombre de visiteurs sur le rivage à un maximum de 100 personnes à la fois. Une croisière aérienne Magellan Explorer ne peut accueillir confortablement que 73 personnes, ce qui permet à tout le monde de descendre à terre en même temps. Cela signifie que vous passerez plus de temps à terre, plutôt que d'attendre votre tour pour débarquer du navire. Le navire de croisière Magellan Explorer propose 7 catégories d'hébergement différentes, y compris des cabines individuelles. Toutes les cabines, à l'exception des cabines avec hublot, disposent d'un balcon privé. Toutes les cabines disposent d'une armoire, d'un système de chauffage à réglage individuel, d'une salle de bains privée, d'un coin salon et de planchers chauffants.

Le navire de croisière Magellan Explorer dispose également d'un magnifique salon d'observation fermé par une vitre, qui permet aux passagers de s'émerveiller devant l'incroyable panorama de l'Antarctique. Les passagers sont invités à participer aux discussions polaires dans la salle de présentation dotée d'un équipement audiovisuel de pointe. Le navire de croisière polaire dispose également d'une bibliothèque, d'une salle de sport conçue par les professionnels d'Anytime Fitness, d'un sauna et d'une clinique médicale.

Le Magellan Explorer est équipé d'une flotte de 10 bateaux Zodiac, parfaitement adaptés à l'aventure en Antarctique et à l'observation de la faune et de la flore. Le pont d'observation à bord du navire de croisière mène également à la proue du navire, où les invités et l'équipage peuvent mieux repérer la faune marine.

La croisière aérienne du Magellan Explorer est le moyen le plus moderne d'explorer l'étonnante région de l'Antarctique. Gain de temps, confort et intimité, cette croisière aérienne repense l'exploration polaire pour ceux qui disposent d'un temps de voyage limité.

Responsabilité environnementale à bord du Magellan Explorer

Parmi nos objectifs en matière de durabilité, les plus importants sont la réduction active de l'impact et des émissions de nos navires, l'investissement dans les nouvelles technologies et l'amélioration continue de nos ressources existantes. Nous avons également installé un nouveau moteur à faibles émissions dans notre navire vétéran, l'Ortelius. Ce moteur est conforme à toutes les dernières législations environnementales. Un autre de nos engagements importants en matière de durabilité est notre utilisation de gazole marin à faible teneur en soufre (LSMGO), dont la teneur en soufre est inférieure à 0,1 %. Nous limitons la production de déchets à bord en recyclant aussi souvent que possible et en interdisant les plastiques à usage unique. Ce navire n'utilise pas de pailles, de gobelets en plastique, ni de beurre, de yaourt et de confiture emballés individuellement. Ce navire dispose d'un système de traitement de l'eau et d'un système de dessalement par osmose inverse, ce qui nous permet d'éliminer l'utilisation de bouteilles d'eau en plastique à bord. Les clients reçoivent plutôt une bouteille d'eau réutilisable qu'ils peuvent remplir à bord du navire. Les salles de bains sont équipées de shampoing et de savon biodégradables dans des emballages recyclés, ce qui limite encore davantage notre utilisation de plastique.

It was an AMAZING journey through one of the most spectacular landscapes I have ever scene (if not the most). The boat was top of the line, the professional crew incredibly professional, knowledgeable and fun to hang out with. The service crew took well care of us during all the journey. The kayak pack is specially recommended and if you are lucky you will also a face to face hunch whale experience you will remember as your top wildlife adventure for life (copied from Trip Advisor)

Impressive trip, a beautiful destination that thanks to A21 becomes unforgettable. The concern for every detail, the professional level of the team, the joy with which they do their work make this experience something unique. Discovering Antarctica with A21 is a dream that we should all have. (copied from Trip Advisor)

We booked the 2.5 week trip incl. Antarctic peninsula and South Georgia. We received good information on clothing, recommended literature, itinerary etc. previously. The one night in Punta Arenas extended due to fog around the antarctic landing strip to three days, with an OK emergency program. The difficulty to get to Antarctica shows that it a somehow adventurous place and not normal tourism. Once arrived on board, we were welcomed nicely and shown the beautiful new vessel, the Magellan Explorer. The expedition staff and the crew are very friendly and professional. The cabins and excellent, all have balconies, mini bars are refilled all the time. Food on boards in really good and varied every day. Wine is OK. The expeditions are what you came for. Protocols are very strict, in order to protect wild life. Whats you see is totally amazing, in Antarctica the icebergs and white sceneries, later on in South Georgia the immense amount of king penguins, seals with puppies, etc. During the days of pure navigation, you can spot whales, albatrosses etc., and get very interesting lectures of Antarctic related topics (history, political situation, animals, etc.). Lecturers are excellent professionals, some are also funny. What could be improved? On our specific trip, the three days lost in the beginning were cut off just from the Antarctic peninsula part of the trip, nothing from South Georgia. Could have been more balanced. And in general, on zodiac tours without landing, people could be grouped by interest (photographers have other needs than the rest, some older people get cold earlier than some younger, etc.). Overall… a trip of the lifetime. I intend to do the pure Antarctic trip with the same company and the same vessel. (Copied from Trip Advisor)

We travelled on the December 6-13, 2021 Classic Antarctica trip on Magellan Explorer, during the pandemic. We flew to Antarctica on Day 1 of the itinerary because it was not clear if we could fly as scheduled on Day 2. That created a bit of a commotion, also because a group of passengers in the end couldn't go due to one of their members testing positive for Covid during the pre-trip screening done by Antarctica21. After we left Punta Arenas for Antarctica, everything went very well. Being in Antarctica is wonderful, like a paradise. Magellan Explorer is in excellent condition and service is excellent. The food is very good, with a lot of variety. Excellent service in the dining room. The wines are very good and abundant. The gym is very good, as is the sauna. We had a barbecue dinner on the top deck and that was a hit, a very happy occasion for everyone. The landings and excursions were very good. The Expedition Team is excellent, very professional and well prepared. The zodiacs are impeccable. On the ship we enjoyed great presentations but we noticed that sometimes other guests seemed tired, which must have been a bit demotivating for the presenters. We didn’t see the officers much. As part of the Covid protocols, there was practically no contact with them. Our last day in Antarctica was a bit of challenge. There was some uncertainty on what to do with our luggage, when we would disembark, etc. Once we did disembark, we had to wait a long time in the open air before boarding the aircraft. It was windy and cold, with no shelter or bathroom. It was nothing compared with what early explorers experienced but any Antarctic traveler should be prepared for some discomfort. In the end, it was quickly forgotten and the good memories of a special trip is what remains. (Copied from Trip Advisor)

It was a 14-day trip through Antarctica and the Georgian Islands, the trip was incredible, the attention of the cleaning staff, the incredible meals, very good, the incredible landscapes, far exceeded expectations. Fully recommended for people who like landscape and wildlife photography above all, penguins, seals, sea lions, whales, killer whales, birds, etc. As advice to future travelers, be patient because boat trips are long, enjoy the benefits offered on the boat, but take advantage of resting in the moments when you are sailing from one side to another.

This was an exceptional travel experience throughout and so much better than we had expected. We signed up for the fly/sail trip (Feb22 to March 13) with Antarctica21. As we traveled to Punta Arenas to begin our trip to with A21, my husband, sister-, brother-in-law , and myself were all skeptical about whether the trip would be what we had hoped, given the complications of Covid-19 and previous negative reviews on this site about the company. However, A21 was outstanding--I can't say enough about how passionate the crew was in terms of accommodating the multiple needs of the guests. Despite lengthy delays of reaching the Antarctica peninsula due to weather, the staff remained positive and optimistic that we would reach our destination. Landing on the continent on a short, dirt runway and walking towards the ocean to climb into the zodiac in order to reach the Magellan Explorer was one of my favorite memories. It was so unlike anything I had ever experienced. The ship was phenomenal--rooms were spacious, housekeeping staff attentive, and the stabilizers on the ship made for a relatively smooth ride, even in high seas. The expedition staff was the most passionate of any cruise I have been on (including Nat Geo) and lectures of their personal experiences in the Antarctic were one of the highlights of our time on the ship. We had the opportunity to kayak with German, who was incredibly knowledgable about navigating around icebergs and sea lions. Each zodiac excursion was unique and I learned a lot about penguins, fur seals and have a new love of the albatross. I enjoyed the international collection of guests--of the 48 only 13 were from the US. The food was delicious and varied --I gained a few pounds--and the wait staff were also friendly and excellent. Because of the delayed departure, we had to shorten our stay on the peninsula in order to reach South Georgia Island and return to S. American in time. Therefore, one caveat about the Fly-Sail trip is being aware that weather can impact the trip. The views and hikes around South Georgia Island were breath-taking. It is worth a trip in and of itself. Kudos to Hadleigh, the expedition leader, who kept us abreast of our daily activities and what to expect from the seas overnight in terms of sea-sickness potential. Having experts in multiple areas who were clearly dedicated to sharing their knowledge was also a treat--shout-outs to Marcelo (marine biology) , Dani (whale biology), and Ruslan (travels across Antarctic). The expedition crew was friendly, personable, and entertaining. They made an effort to include guests in their lectures with question and answer sessions, as well as a fun quiz at the end of our trip. Every member of the expedition staff helped to make the trip the wonderful. I also think we were lucky to have had AdventureSmith as our booking agent. We spent a lot of time on the phone with Taylor over a years time keeping our fingers crossed that our trip would take place. She was incredibly responsive and helpful. I cannot say enough about how spectacular this trip was. (Copied from Trip Advisor)
