Statement 8th April 2020
Swoop is aware of, and closely following, the unfortunate situation of an outbreak of Covid-19 aboard this ship during her last Antarctic voyage of the season. Swoop does not have any customers on board.
Why we like the Greg Mortimer
- The first expedition ship to pioneer the groundbreaking X-BOW technology, it will pierce waves making for a smoother overall voyage
- We love the fact that in spite of being crammed with technology, this small ship only carries a maximum of 120 passengers, ensuring everyone can land together
- 80% of the cabins benefit from having outer balconies and all are spaciously proportioned, ranging from 180 - 385 square feet
- A panoramic observation deck with floor to ceiling windows and spacious outer decks means you’ll never miss out on the action wherever you are on the ship
- For active travellers, optional activities are available: kayaking, camping, snowshoeing, scuba diving & polar snorkelling

What our customers think
The service from Swoop was great. You were open with us and explained how this particular cruise would work. After talking to others on the cruise, we felt we were better informed about the details.
Travis & Kalli Walthall United States Of America December 2017
I'm thrilled that I booked with Swoop. They gave me lots of information on the ship. During the trip, I was surprised at how skilled the crew was to adapt to new contingency plans due to changing weather.
Dennis Roy United States Of America February 2019
Traversing the Lemaire Channel on a clear, blue, calm day with mirror-like reflections of snowy peaks in the water was stunning.

Every day is different and amazing in a new way. Shocked at how much there is to see and do, I never wanted to leave.
Deirdre Clute United States Of America March 2017
I love zodiacs so I was very happy we had them. The icebergs, especially the black icebergs were remarkable in every way. The wildlife was good, especially the Humpbacks, Minke and the Chinstraps.
