Why We Like Greg Mortimer


    Across Greg Mortimer itineraries, multiple adventure activities may be offered, including kayaking, camping, snowshoeing, scuba diving, polar snorkelling, ski touring, rock climbing, and alpine trekking.


    This best-in-class build is especially designed to reduce emissions into the air and sea and promises lower energy consumption, high fuel efficiency, reduced light pollution for minimal wildlife disruption and lower on-board plastic use.


    Greg Mortimer passengers can partake in citizen science programs like cloud and seabird surveys, marine mammal identification and phytoplankton studies.


    Another great feature of the accommodation on the Greg Mortimer are the interconnecting staterooms. If you're part of a family or group who want some privacy, but still want to be close to each other, these staterooms are the perfect option.
