Since 2015, Marine Practice has been organizing educational programs on large sailing ships and yachts: during this time we have introduced 2,610 people to marine science and conducted 187 scientific expedition programs.Unlike a tour on a large liner, the format of the expedition on a sailing ship allows you to get to know Antarctica as close as possible: to get close to blue icebergs, to see whales at arm's length and to visit polar stations of different countries. With us you can become a real member of a ship's crew, take part in keeping ship's watch and setting sails, learn the basics of navigation in polar conditions and pass through the harsh Drake Passage on a sailing ship like brave explorers.
Why is it worth going to Antarctica on the Amazone? Unlike a large cruise liner with hundreds of tourists, Amazone can accommodate only 24 people at a time, along with the crew. This allows us to preserve the privacy of the meeting with Antarctica and not to harm the fragile ecosystem of the polar region. Besides, the format of a scientific expedition on a sailing ship allows us to get acquainted with Antarctica as close as possible: to get close to blue icebergs, to see whales at arm's length and to visit polar stations of different countries.
