Q: Can I fly my UAV/quadcopter/drone during an Oceanwide Expeditions trip?

Oceanwide Expeditions does not allow the use of recreational UAVs/quadcopters/drones during its voyages. This applies both on the ship and off, regardless of any permits held by the passenger.

The International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) has prohibited the recreational use of UAVs/quadcopters/drones on member vessels, Zodiac boats, and during scheduled landings. Also, the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands have issued a ban on recreational use of these devices in their territories.

The Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) has also prohibited the recreational use of UAVs/quadcopters/drones on member vessels and during all cruise excursions.

As a full member of both IAATO and AECO, Oceanwide Expeditions supports their prohibition on the recreational use of drones in order to minimize environmental impact and enhance passenger experience.
