Originally built for the United States agency NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration), the USHUAIA has been refurbished to accommodate a maximum of 90 passengers in 46 comfortable cabins and suites. The ice-strengthened polar vessel USHUAIA is very well appointed and provides ample deck space and an open bridge policy. The full complement of inflatable landing craft ensures superb landings and wildlife viewing opportunities on the otherwise inaccessible coastline.
All voyages embark and disembark in the port of Ushuaia. Our itineraries are expertly planned to take best advantage of the amazing wildlife and spectacular scenery during each part of the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic season.
Our Classic Antarctic adventure cruises on board the USHUAIA offer the ultimate introduction to the White Continent.
In addition, we have three new itineraries: Polar Circle Quest, Classic South Georgia and the Weddell Sea Quest.
