Guidance for Visitors to Antarctica
On the occasions that we are in areas where there is a possibility of wildlife sightings, the ship's officers and staff are constantly on the lookout. However, please don't hesitate to report a sighting to the bridge or staff. If we are fortunate enough to spot wildlife, we will announce it from the bridge, regardless of the hour. If you wish to go back to sleep please do so!
Do not feed, touch, or handle birds or seals, or approach or photograph them in ways that cause them to alter their behaviour. Special care is needed when animals are breeding or moulting. Keep a minimum distance of 5 metres (15 feet) from all wildlife.
Do not damage plants, by walking or landing on extensive moss beds or lichen-covered scree slopes. They are fragile and take generations to grow.
Respect the Environment
Do not collect or take away biological or geological specimens or artefacts as souvenirs, and do not litter or dispose of rubbish on land.
