We really enjoyed our recent adventure with Poseidon Expeditions. The staff and crew of the Sea Spirit couldn't have been better and the accommodations were wonderful. Our cabin steward Mario deserves a special thank you, as do Ruell and the entire food staff - vegetarians eat well!

Everything was 5 stars! The ship, the crew, the food, our expedition leaders. We were sorry to see it end and say good-bye. Everything that could be done for our comfort, safety, and enjoyment was done. The experience was marvelous and every day brought wondrous things. I recommend Poseidon Expeditions and the M/V Sea Spirt with absolutely no reservations!

We took a trip to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica on the Sea Spirit and it exceeded expectations. Everything about the trip was excellent. The ship's accommodations were wonderful, the staff was fantastic and the food was very good. We were constantly impressed by all the details that were thought of. Every one of the guides was very knowledgeable and offered something different to the trip. The waters can be very rough and shore landings are never guaranteed, but the guides and crew made sure that we had every opportunity to go ashore. I have nothing but praise to give for this organization and I plan to travel with them again.

Flexiblilty made the trip fabulous. We saw everything we expected and more and the entire crew could NOT have been more accommodating. Weather and violent seas were never a problem. The Drake passage was like a summer sailboat outing on Lake Erie. No one believes me but the pictures dont lie.

Food was very very good, Zodiaks were safe and adventuresome, and the people (crew and passengers) were enjoyable to share an experience with. The size of the ship was perfect for a Polar Expedition.

We have traveled with Poseidon twice to the Antarctic region. Both trips could not have been any better. Our cabin on the ship was perfect. The ship's crew was extremely accommodating and flexible. The expedition crew was very knowledgeable and personal. In addition, the food on the ship couldn't have been any better.
If you decide to travel with Poseidon Expeditions it will be a decision that you will never regret.

Stride Review

Since 1999, Poseidon Expeditions has been leading adventures to the world’s Polar Regions.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

An innovator in polar exploration, Poseidon takes you on a breathtaking journey through icy waters and snow. They offer such activities as camping in Antarctica, penguin viewing (of course!) and adventure sea kayaking through their own kayaking club. 

Who Travels With Them?

The great thing about a cruise is even the most cautious traveler can visit adventurous destinations. They do require a single supplement if you are traveling solo, so unless you’re ok paying a bit extra, their trips are ideally suited to families or couples. The average age of travelers is between 45 and 65 and they recommend that travelers be physically fit.

Where Do They Operate?

Poseidon Expeditions specializes in the polar regions of the world, meaning Antarctica and the Arctic. You will visit the enchanting lands of Greenland, and experience the thrill of dodging ice in a zodiac in Antarctica; cruise through Iceland, and visit the North Pole. Due to their specialized focus, they have extensive expertise in these regions, giving you an in depth look at their tremendous beauty and history.

Why Travel With Them?

For an adventurous travel experience including fun shore excursions such as hiking and a lot of on-ship activities such as whale watching. Knowledgeable expedition guides provide expert insight on local wildlife, and the science behind the incredible landscapes you’ll explore.

From Poseidon Expeditions

Poseidon Expeditions was founded in 1999 as an operator of icebreaker expedition cruises to the North Pole. Having had no rival in this special niche of the world travel market, our company became recognized experts in North Pole icebreaker cruising. 

Our first voyage to the North Pole was operated aboard the nuclear powered icebreaker Yamal, the only ship at that time that could provide safe and comfortable navigation to the "top of the world". Two years later, new destinations and another icebreaker were introduced to the world travel market – the Franz Josef Land Archipelago Voyage and Transpolar Bridge Voyage aboard the icebreaker Kapitan Dranitsyn. These territories, known as "the Russian Arctic", had been closed to travelers due to political and governmental reasons. It was only at the end of the 20th century that travelers finally got a chance to appreciate the beauty of the Russian Arctic. 

With the world becoming smaller, human aspirations to visit remote and hard–to–reach destinations is increasing. Now we are proud to be one of the world leaders in polar expedition cruising with both Arctic and Antarctic regions among our destinations and to be one of the world leaders in polar expedition cruising. Poseidon Expeditions has offices in the UK, USA, Russia, China, Japan and Europe, enhancing a global network of travel professionals.
