 As the Southern Hemisphere springs to life, leading cruise specialist One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) is launching into its 11th Antarctic cruise season. Along with the inaugural voyage of the company’s newest vessel, RCGS Resolute, the new Antarctic cruise season brings the introduction of new itineraries as well as OOE’s enhanced science and special guest programs.

The 2018/19 season begins with a journey to the sub-Antarctic for OOE’s exclusive “South Georgia In-Depth” voyage, exploring the staggering wildlife and raw beauty of the region. This itinerary is a dream come true for amateur and pro photographers with OOE’s unique ‘Photography Symposium’ program taking place, led by award-winning photographers and artists, Daisy Gilardini and David McEown.

RCGS Resolute will welcome her first guests on the much anticipated “Off the Beaten Track” voyage, playing host to famed Adventurer, Storm Chaser andExplorer-in-Residence for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society George Kourounis. Early season conditions will offer a pristine setting for guests to experience ski touring, snowshoeing, winter camping, sea kayaking, and photography in addition to OOE’s rich educational programming.

Influential environmentalist and filmmaker Tim Jarvis will be re-creating the Shackleton crossing led by OOE’s IFMGA qualified mountain guides on the second “South Georgia In-Depth” voyage of the season, with the epic journey being documented as he and his team make their way across this legendary landscape. Jarvis will also be joining the “Antarctic In-Depth Extended Peninsula” voyage as an ambassador with the World Wildlife Fund Australia.

With education and science at the forefront, OOE is excited to showcase world-leading scientists and oceanographic researchers on board its Antarctic voyages. For the fifth consecutive season, OOE welcomes back renowned scientist Dr. Ari Friedlaender of the California Ocean Alliance, a leading marine mammal scientist working on ground-breaking research through OOE’s Marine Mammal Programming.

Over the last decade, Ron Naveen of Oceanites has been working alongside OOE in the study of penguin behaviour and populations. As the organization celebrates 25 years of work in the polar region, Ron and his team will be conducting essential census research of penguin rookeries whilst onboard with OOE guests.

OOE’s team of expert marine biologists, geologists, polar historians, photographers and artists will be sharing their knowledge and passion with guests through daily educational seminars and compelling fireside conversations. Scientists and researchers have an inclusive space for micro plastic water sampling and data analysis while traveling in remote areas with the new OOE ‘OneLab’ onboard RCGS Resolute. Carefully selecting research partners, OOE is proud to partner with professionals that execute important projects and conduct science while onboard our expedition cruise vessels.
