About the Ocean Endeavour

Built in 1982 under the name Konstantin Simonov, the ship has held a number of names over the years and has been refitted on several occasions before being christened as Ocean Endeavour in 2014.

These days, Ocean Endeavour is one of the most well-appointed and advanced expedition ships in Antarctica. The ship comes with an ice-strengthened hull, advanced navigation system, a number of zodiacs and excellent deck space.

The ships interior is well-furnished, light and modern with excellent viewing areas. There is a nautical lounge, several restaurants, sun deck and library aboard the Ocean Endeavour.
