Polar plunge

If you’re up to the shock, taking the polar plunge can be an invigorating addition to an expedition cruise

Polar plunge

Taking the polar plunge

A favorite activity for some of our passengers is the so-called polar plunge, a shore-based swimming activity we sometimes offer in the Arctic and Antarctica when local conditions allow.

For safety reasons, we cannot offer the polar plunge directly from the ship or Zodiac boat. Rather, we select a suitable beach from which the brave few can immerse themselves in the invigorating (some say frigid) polar waters.

The polar plunge activity always takes place under the direct supervision of our guides to ensure the safety of our guests.
