Our Pledge To You

The Discovery Gold Standard

01 Our Ship

Ocean Endeavour is a comfortable, well-appointed small expedition ship expertly engineered to explore the Polar Regions. The ship has an ice-strengthened hull, Zodiacs for exploration and remote landings, and advanced navigation equipment. The newly-refurbished vessel offers a superb guest experience with an expansive choice of cabin categories, large cabins and common areas, a sundeck and observation area, plenty of deck space for polar landscape viewing, and lounges for learning and reflection.

Endeavour is also one of the only polar adventure ships in Antarctica focused on health and wellness and offers a contemporary approach to cuisine and newly-designed health and fitness features. Facilities include a spa serviced by organic spa provider VOYA, His & Hers saunas, a saltwater pool, a gym, and a juice and smoothie bar. Complimentary activities include yoga and stretching classes, the Scientists in Residence program, and more adventure activities than any other vessel in our operator’s fleet of polar ships.

02 Photo Opportunities

This is an extraordinary voyage that you’re about to embark on and it is filled with awesome photo ops.

On this expedition, we’ll explore Buenos Aires,  Ushuaia, South Georgia Island, the South Shetland Islands, and of course… the icy continent, Antarctica itself! Each of these places offers its own unique and spectacular possibilities for you to capture the quintessential images that you have been dreaming of.

What will you potentially witness and photograph? We’re glad you asked. Many different species of penguins that will number in the tens of thousands, Right, Blue, Sei, Humpback, Minke, Fin, Sperm and Killer whales, orcas,  several dolphin species, Southern elephant seals, Antarctic fur seals, and seabirds galore.

You’ll also want to keep your camera ready to shoot floating ice formations and icebergs, abandoned whaling stations, mountainous landscapes, sea kayakers, and the most epic selfie of your life!

03 Our Photographer Leaders

Discovery co-founder Ken Kaminesky will be leading this scouting expedition and he’s looking forward to sharing this incredible voyage with the nine lucky guests that will be joining him. You’ll have ample time on board the ship to discuss photography, learn post-processing techniques, and get images critiqued all in a private setting.

Out in the field, Ken will be with you photographing side by side, capturing stills and video for Discovery. Photography aside, we expect you’ll have the time of your life on this scouting expedition. Traveling with us means there will be lots of laughs, interesting stories, delicious meals, and fun-filled adventures where you’ll be treated like family and will leave with new lifelong friends and cherished memories.
