Statement of Capability

Since her first sailing/climbing expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia in 1988, Pelagic Expeditions with Pelagic and lately Pelagic Australis has been back South every year using Ushuaia or Puerto Williams along the Beagle Channel and also Stanley in the Falkland Islands as logistical bases.

Specializing in providing support for mountaineers, film makers, divers, kayakers and scientific teams both vessels have proven their capabilities as dependable, well equipped platforms for operations of this type in the testing conditions of the Southern Ocean.
