Antarctica by superyacht & submersible

Unique access for charterers & owners

We’ve organised arguably the most ambitious Antarctic yacht charters of recent times. Alongside the world’s first private submersible dive, our trips have made use of multiple helis, yachts, support vessels and up to 30 experts to facilitate our clients’ interests.

That’s meant bringing along a team of scientists to discover a new subspecies of killer whale, children’s guides to bring the history to life and mountaineers to facilitate fresh ski runs.

No-one is better placed to support your passions, wherever they lie.

A team of scientist’s ground-breaking research into a new type of killer whale has been made possible by Cookson Adventures… funding killer whale research as part of a trip to the Antarctic Peninsula.

Having brought maiden superyacht charters and owner vessels alike across the Antarctic Peninsula, we know that travelling by yacht offers the ultimate appreciation of this last frontier.

With our expertise, you’ll have the flexibility to adapt to the weather, wildlife and other marine traffic to explore in complete isolation, going where cruise ships can’t. That’s whether you want to watch humpbacks from your yacht’s Jacuzzi or tackle new routes with a world-champion skier.

As one of the original twin helicopter operators, we’ve also brought in support vessels and additional yachts so that, with two helis, our clients can fly further than line of sight, with their primary vessel. This means unique inland vantage points over iceberg formations and access to mountains for ski activities.

For those really in search of the unique, we can bring you down in submersibles to explore the icy depths. Far beyond the reach of traditional diving, it’s the chance to discover the weird and wonderful Antarctic marine life.

However, whatever you choose, you can be sure that your adventure will be designed around you. For some, that might mean kayaking with scientists studying whale migrations, while for others, that might be historian-led stories for the whole family, detailing the pioneering history of Antarctic explorers past. Throughout, we’ve got the contacts to make it happen.

There’s also plenty of fun either side of your flight in. That could mean heading on to South Georgia to discover its million-strong penguin populations or enjoying pre-trip adventures in Patagonia. We even pioneered Puerto Natales as a flight departure point, with its stunning Andean setting ripe for gaucho-style exploration while waiting for the weather window to fly.
