Magellan Explorer is a modern expedition vessel custom-built for Antarctic wilderness cruising and exploring the White Continent's immense landscapes and diverse wildlife. The ship was built in Chile to the latest Polar Code specifications and launched in 2019. Powerful and nimble, Magellan Explorer was developed from the ground up by international polar expedition experts working closely with designers, engineers, and naval architects. With intelligent and sustainable solutions purposely designed to enhance the guest experience, Magellan is the ideal base for your Antarctic adventure. Designed to provide optimal comfort and a modern style, our spaces invite relaxation and enjoyment. Enrique Concha & Co., a renowned design studio in Santiago de Chile, designed Magellan Explorer's interiors considering every detail from the colors, the materials, to the lighting.
Each element was skillfully selected to enhance the experience on board. In its optimal configuration, Magellan Explorer offers seven accommodation categories, including dedicated single cabins, and can accommodate up to 73 guests. Nearly all cabins feature private balconies, and all feature a wardrobe, individually controlled heating system, a sitting area, and a private bathroom with a shower. The vessel features a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, a spacious and stylish dining room, a well-stocked bar, a library, a meeting room, a gym, a sauna, and a medical clinic.
The forward-facing observation deck leads to the ship's bow, accessible to guests to offer proximity to marine wildlife. The ship has a fleet of 10 Zodiac boats well suited for cruising, wildlife watching, and land explorations.
The fitness center aboard Magellan Explorer has been designed and built by the professionals at Anytime Fitness, the world's only fitness company with boutique gyms on all seven continents.
