Hebridean Sky Antarctica Cruises

A classic premium expedition ship recently transformed into one of the finest small ships in the world

A polar cruise on board the Hebridean Sky

Welcome aboard Hebridean Sky, a small, all-suite Antarctic expedition vessel. The ship was built in 1992 and refurbished in 2005. In 2016 she was transformed by an extensive, multimillion-dollar renovation into one of the finest small ships of her class in the world. For our Antarctic air-cruises, Hebridean Sky accommodates only 75 passengers, giving you an intimate polar exploration experience.

The ship offers a classically elegant base for adventurous exploration in Antarctica. Her suites, offering eight different accommodation categories, are spacious, with premium appointments throughout, including private balconies in some suites. Each suite features a sitting area, a private bathroom, a picture window, and two twin beds that can, on request, be joined to form a queen-size bed. Hebridean Sky also features triple cabins with a sofa bed suitable for individuals who are no more than 1.70 m (5′ 6″) tall - perfect for families or groups.

Her public areas include “The Club” lounge, a well-appointed library, a presentation lounge with excellent audio-visual facilities, a dining room, an outdoor cafe, a medical clinic, a full wraparound deck that’s perfect for Antarctic whale watching, and an elevator serving all passenger decks.

For exploring Antarctic icebergs, glaciers, and remote shores, Hebridean Sky is equipped with a fleet of 10 Zodiac boats, ensuring that you can enjoy your excursions in small groups. Her experienced crew includes Antarctic experts, who will bring the region to life with talks and lectures on the wildlife, geology, and human history of the Southern Ocean and Antarctica.
