Antarctica : Ocean Diamond

Type: Superior Vessel Max capacity: 189 passengers

The latest and largest addition to our fleet, Ocean Diamond is a modern, stable super-yacht and with a cruising speed of 15.5 knots is one of our fastest vessels - allowing for less time at sea and more time ashore. Ocean Diamond is the first Carbon Neutral polar vessel, with all emissions being offset.



The Ocean Diamond boasts a range of onboard extras such as a massage and wellness programme, featuring yoga classes, aromatherapy treatments & massage therapy. Also available are photography instruction and adventure options including camping, kayaking, snowshoeing, skiing and mountaineering.Facilities on board the Ocean Diamond include a well-stocked polar library, passenger elevator, bar and lecture theatre. All cabins have external views and private facilities, and feature a flat-screen TV and DVD player.

All passengers travelling on the Ocean Diamond will receive one year’s membership in the Friends of Scott Polar Research Institute association. Founded in 1920 in Cambridge, United Kingdom, the Scott Polar Research Institute is the oldest international centre for Polar Research within a university, linking the history of polar exploration with modern research.

Ocean Diamond is proud to become the first ever polar passenger ship to be carbon neutral. All emissions will be offset via a number of global projects - more details here
