At Aurora Expeditions wilderness is a passion we share with others by taking small groups of like-minded people to some of the most isolated places on our planet. From the polar regions of Antarctica and High Arctic to the wilds of the Russian Coast, Papua New Guinea and Australia¹s Kimberley Coast, Aurora Expeditions aims to create special expedition-style cruises that foster an understanding and appreciation of our natural world.

The Australian-owned adventure company was initially established in the early 1990¹s by adventures Greg Mortimer and Margaret Werner when they began sharing their love of remote places by organising ship-based trips for keen friends and fellow travellers. Their style to Œpush the boundaries¹ has remained unchanged and we are proud of the fact that our spirit of adventure and exploration is as strong as ever. Our adventure activities are proof of this; many of our voyages offering polar scuba diving, sea kayaking, camping and mountain climbing.

Deeply committed to education and preservation of the environment, Aurora Expeditions were the founding member of both the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) and the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO). All our voyages are have expert expedition staff who will help to unlock the wonders of these special places.

Our excellent Western chefs prepare three healthy, delicious meals each day, with snacks and treats available in the dining rooms at other times.
Tipping?

People often ask us what they should do about tipping. Tipping is a very personal matter but if pressed, we recommend $US7 per passenger per day that you are on the ship. It is better for the crew if we can give them US dollars cash.

Children

The nature of these cruises means that the company does not take children under the age of 12. Children 12 and over pay full adult fare and are treated as adults. No special activities are offered.
