Why We Like Her


    Designed and operated by the original pioneers of the Antarctic Fly & Cruise concept, the Magellan Explorer allows you to fly to the Peninsula and skip the oft-dreaded Drake Passage crossing.

  • SIZE

    Limited to a maximum of only 73 passengers per departure, you’ll get more time off the ship and out in the elements, either on shore or in Zodiacs.


    The fitness center aboard Magellan Explorer has been designed and built by the professionals at Anytime Fitness, the world’s only fitness company with boutique gyms in all seven continents.
