Sustainable transport

Technically adapted to an environmentally sensitive place

What better way for you to experience a polar expedition than on a sailing vessel!

Follow the footsteps of the first explorers,  surrounded  by the sounds of the wind, waves and sails…

Cruising into fjords by wind power, the ship is able to come close to wildlife without disturbing it.

For safety reasons and those days without wind, there’s a backup diesel engine. Equipped with modern techniques, DEX nano lubricants and clean GTL fuel, pollution is kept to a minimum.

Ocean Sherpa is technically adapted to an environmentally sensitive place such as the Arctic.

A water maker provides fresh drinking water so no plastic bottles are needed. Eco-friendly cleaning supplies and toiletries are used.

To secure all procedures, we follow the strict guidelines of AECO (Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators) to ensure minimal disturbance to natural sites and wildlife.

Ocean Sherpa has an AECO manual and is voluntary operating under ISM and PWOM.

To protect the unique and sensitive Polar regions, we motivate groups to participate in beach cleaning activities, which has great effect on the local environment and awareness of our passengers.
