Poseidon Expeditions is one of the leading providers of polar expeditions in the cruise industry. Founded in 1999, the company is a recognized leader in icebreaker cruises to the North Pole, the Arctic and Antarctica. With the 114-passenger Sea Explorer and Sea Spirit, Poseidon expanded its offerings to include deluxe expedition cruises to Antarctica, and to the Arctic destinations of Svalbard, Greenland, Franz Josef Land and Iceland. With representations and offices in the UK, US, Germany, Cyprus, Russia, and China, the company markets it travel programs worldwide.
Poseidon Expeditions’ goal is to provide curious, discerning travelers with the perfect combination of comfort and personable service, balanced with maximum opportunities for outdoor activities in the spirit of adventure. Using a fleet of Zodiac landing craft and operating different types of helicopters aboard icebreakers, passengers are guided ashore by an exceptional team of expedition guides and educators to observe up-close the spectacular wildlife and landscapes.
As a member in good standing of both the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) and the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO), our company pledges its commitment to the further development of Arctic and Antarctic conservation and support of related scientific research.
We actively encourage participation in our expeditions by naturalists and scientists engaged in such research, offering a platform fr om which they can pursue their important work as well as a forum wh ere they can voice their unique understanding of these fragile and remote ecosystems. Preservation of the Arctic and Antarctic habitats and the Polar Ice Cap are environmental imperatives and the responsibility of all, including tourism operators and their guests. We at Poseidon Expeditions are honored to be a part of this, and to help our passengers understand the importance of preserving Polar Regions for future generations.
