Setting sail from King George Island

The relative proximity of King George Island to South America, together with the fact that around 10% of the island is ice-free, means that there are several research stations clustered here, along with an airfield. It's the biggest island in the South Shetlands archipelago, and is also home to the world's most southerly Russian Orthodox church!

Arriving in Ushuaia

Ushuaia is sometimes described as 'the city at the end of the world', though its rugged beauty is far from apocalyptic. Perched on the ragged southern edge of Argentina, where the snow-capped Andes fall away into the churning sea, the city has a frontier town feel to it, and serves as the base for expeditions into the icy waters of Antarctica. There are also plenty of outdoor pursuits on offer here, including hiking, skiing and fishing, and the Tierra del Fuego National Park is home to spectacular scenery and wildlife including penguins, guanacos, sea lions and condors.

The Ship

Your home from home

Sylvia Earle
Sylvia Earle
Sylvia Earle Outdoor Restaurant

Named in honour of the accomplished marine biologist, oceanographer and explorer, the Sylvia Earle is Aurora Expeditions' second purpose-built expedition ship with a revolutionary new design.

What we love

Just take a look at the pictures - quite different from anything we have seen before, with a revolutionary new patented X-BOW design which has a number of benefits. Not only does it increase passenger comfort by eliminating slamming in heavy seas, but also the journey is speeded up so uncomfortable rides in heavy seas are minimised. This also results in environmental benefits, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

On board, Aurora Expeditions passengers will enjoy the company's established style - a comfortable, friendly and laid-back vibe in the company of like-minded travellers, for whom the time ashore is everything. The focus is on small group exploration, with a commitment to getting off the ship as much as possible for up close and personal encounters with wilderness and wildlife.

Capacity 132 Guests
Crew 80 Staff
Style Relaxed, authentic, cosy - a totally unpretentious and educational experience for true adventurers.
