Intrepid’s James Thornton told KARRYON readers to stay tuned for an exciting announcement regarding Peregrine Adventures, and less than a week later, we know what it is.

Peregrine Adventures is returning to Antarctica, and it’s making the region affordable.

Gear up guys!


Peregrine will return to the polar region in October 2020 where it’ll operate sustainable small-group expeditions created by the Intrepid Group and its venture partner, Chimu Adventures.

Each charter will take place on the newly refurbished 199-passenger Ocean Endeavour, which according to Chimu’s Co-Founder Greg Carter, has a range of accommodation options, a health and wellness centre and a 1:8 expedition leader and guest ratio.


Guests can expect to enjoy the White Continent through sea kayaking, snowshoeing and ice-camping, while also following rigorous sustainability standards such as no single-use plastic onboard, reusable water bottles for every guest, only sustainable seafood and more.

Carter and Thornton said the new program will feed a “huge appetite” for sustainable, experiential cruising through Antarctica from travellers of all ages.

“They want to get closer to nature and understand the world we live in.”

But the best part is, it’s affordable.


Thornton said voyages start from AU$7,090, making the Antarctic more affordable than ever before without compromising sustainability.

“Antarctica needs advocates and tourism creates a global constituency of people ready to support – and indeed fund – its preservation.”

“When you’re there, you see how fragile the earth is, and that really does inspire travellers to come back with a renewed momentum to protect the planet.”
