As the Antarctic season unfolds, Albatros Expeditions is excited to continue redefining polar exploration, this time with both the Ocean Victory and the Ocean Albatros.

Fort Lauderdale, FL  – Albatros Expeditions, a pioneer in polar exploration, has achieved a historic milestone with both of its cutting-edge vessels, the Ocean Victory and the Ocean Albatros, meeting for the first time at 65.067°S 64.027°W in the iconic Lemaire Channel in Antarctica on the morning of 11 December.

This momentous occasion was long-awaited, as this is the first Antarctic season in the company’s history with two state-of-the-art vessels operating simultaneously. Passengers aboard the Ocean Victory and the Ocean Albatros had the unique opportunity to admire their vessel’s sister ship before continuing their journey through the Antarctic Peninsula.
