How does your company compare to competitors? 1. Safe, company owned, quality ice strengthened expedition vessels meeting the highest international safety standards with competent crew and staff and a cozy informal atmosphere on board. 2. We are able to provide a wide array of activity options (snow shoe walking, back country skiing, hiking, scuba-diving, kayaking, camping (in Antarctica)) and shore excursions for all levels, from novice to expert. Our vessels are your basecamp for activities at sea, air & land. 3. Development of innovative trips and theme voyages: Examples are our voyages with helicopters, bringing you to places otherwise inaccessible. 4. Our first pioneering expeditions as ‘Plancius Foundation’ date back to 1983 being one of the first ship operators in Spitsbergen. In 1996 Oceanwide Expeditions was founded and we invented the “basecamp” concept in 2010. Our pioneering spirit and know-how remain strong today. 5. We set foot on the world’s most remote places such as Bouvet Island, Tristan da Cunha, South Sandwich Islands and the high-Antarctic Dry Valleys. We also offer a year-round Arctic program including departures in North Norway.
