Stylish ship with large cabins and a remarkably spacious feel throughout. Specialises in air cruises.

Hebridean Sky is a small, first class expedition vessel operating cruises to Antarctica accommodating 100 guests (75 on air cruises). Expeditions on this most attractive of ships convey the atmosphere and enthusiasm of adventure and discovery, complemented by the comforts of a classic first class hotel. Guests are well looked after by a really friendly crew and the food is of a high standard. Spacious yet cosy guest suites, arranged over five decks, are all carpeted and excellently furnished, but all have natural light, their own sitting area and hotel-style amenities such as mini-fridge, TV, personal safe and bathrobes.  Some of the suites have their own balcony and all have private bathroom with walk-in shower.

Public areas include a lounge, a library with soft sofas and mellow lighting, a presentation room for lectures and films, an exercise room, a medical clinic, a wraparound deck from which to observe birds, whales or dolphins and stretch your legs, and a lift serving all passenger decks.  You can enjoy sophisticated cuisine at the smart à la carte interior dining room, but you can also choose to eat al fresco on the Lido deck. Guests make off-board excursions on the ten Zodiac boats carries by the ship.

  • Most Memorable Experience: “The Awesome Beauty of a Sunny Antarctica!”

    AW, Nottingham
    Dec 2012
  • The whole experience of sailing across Antarctica was amazing, but being able to visit Scott's at Cape Evans was probably the pinnacle of the trip.

    JW, Bedford
    Jan 2020
  • Most memorable experience: "A hard question to answer, but probably being able to walk on the continent, and not just strolling along the shore line, but fairly serious walking on snow and ice up onto the local ridges."

    HW, New Romney
    Feb 2014
  • Highlights: “Setting foot on Antarctica and seeing the wildlife in its natural habitat.  The first part had always been an ambition of mine”
