Small-ship expedition company One Ocean Expeditions has been providing guests with personalised marine experiences to some of the most unspoiled and ecologically sensitive places on Earth for over ten years. 

A proudly Canadian company, One Ocean Expeditions operates the capable and comfortable RCGS Resolute, a vessel built for exploration and tailored for discovery, named after the Inuit town of Resolute in Nunavut territory and carrying the Royal Canadian Geographical Society prefix. The ship hosts less than 146 passengers and operates with the highest guest to team ratio in the expedition cruise industry (2:1).

RCGS Resolute offers a wide range of tailored excursions and small-group activities led by expert guides sailing to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, as well as to the Canadian Arctic, Spitsbergen, Greenland, Canada’s East Coast, Islands of the North Atlantic and Central and South America. This, alongside OOE’s combined 185 years of expedition experience, makes them a world leader in small-ship cruising.

At the centre of all One Ocean Expeditions programming is a core commitment to ocean and environmental health. Providing up to 120 days per vessel each year to world leading research, One Ocean Expeditions supports nationally and internationally accredited scientific programmes working with renowned scientists at both Poles and beyond. Most recently, a groundbreaking science container lab was installed onboard RCGS Resolute. The One Lab is a custom-built specialist laboratory providing scientists with the space they need not only to collect high quality samples during a voyage, but also to analyse and study the samples whilst at sea. Citizen science is a core part of the One Ocean Expeditions onboard programme and, alongside authentic itineraries and immersive excursions, it provides countless opportunities for guests to learn more about the delicate environments they have visited and how they can be better protected.
