One Ocean is one of the most expedition orientated operators in the Polar Regions. Their ships have traditionally been small, with an exceptional focus on exploration, people and mitigating environmental impacts. The small size of ship means the voyage is much more adventurous as the expedition team are able to be more responsive and get the passengers off the ship quickly.

Ioffe

Rating
5
Standard
Simple
Capacity
96

The Akademik Ioffe was designed and built as a polar scientific research vessel and has features that few other ships in the polar regions can match. The ship is stable and quiet, which means she can expertly manoeuvre close to the action. There is plenty of outside deck space for observing Antarctica and because the ship carries just 96 passengers, it means everyone can set foot on the ice at the same time.

A virtually identical sister ship to the Akademik Ioffe, this is a purpose-built vessel designed to have maximum stability in adverse conditions, quiet engines and superior speed. This combination of characteristics results in excellent manoeuvrability in the polar regions, allowing further exploration and close up views of the landscape.
