Expedition Image

Type: Expedition ship

Introduction

Max capacity: 68 passengers

Built in 1992 in Denmark this vessel carries a small group of up to 68 passengers in superior comfort. She is manned by a highly skilled crew together with the experienced expedition team, and on selected departures offers the chance to kayak.

This Danish-built vessel boasts an impressive observation lounge and bar on the top deck, which doubles as a lecture room. There is a fair-sized bridge, open-deck viewing areas and a full complement of Zodiacs. Other public areas include a spacious dining room and library, where passengers can relax and enjoy the views. There is also a small gym and a medical room with onboard doctor.

Ocean Nova has an ice-strengthened hull and a shallow draft allowing for closer positioning to shore, shortening the transfer times during landings. Boarding of the Zodiacs is swift and straightforward thanks to the conveniently placed gangway.
