Expedition Team

Greg Mortimer

As a modern and custom-designed ship, the 130-guest Greg Mortimer is at the cutting edge of nautical technology. Robust, powerful and built with guests in mind, the Greg Mortimer is built to world-class polar standards. Built with the environment in mind, the ship features a Tier 3 engine, (which gives off 80% less emissions than typical engines) lower energy consumption, high fuel efficiency, reduced light pollution for minimal wildlife disruption, and lower onboard plastic use. The ship has state-of-the-art virtual anchoring technology, meaning the ship can hold its position using its own propellers and thrusters while launching Zodiacs and kayaks without disturbing the sea floor. All staterooms feature an oceanview, en suite bathrooms, personal storage options, twin and double-bed configuration options, and ample storage.
