Poseidon Expeditions is adding to its on-land camping slots and sea kayaking options.
For guests aboard the M/V Sea Spirit who wish to camp on land on Antarctic excursions, they will be supplied with mummy-shaped sleeping bags rated for temperatures to -18ºC (0ºF), a freshly laundered cotton sleeping bag liner and a full-length insulated foam sleeping pad. Guests have the option of a bivvy sack so they sleep under the stars singly or a deluxe two-person waterproof, freestanding dome tent instead.
“Last year we had only 30 overnight slots per voyage available,” said Steve Wellmeier, managing director of Poseidon’s North American sales and reservation office. “These allotments quickly sold out so this season we decided to offer 40 spaces.”

Guests on either Arctic or Antarctic tours will be allowed to join the Sea Kayaking Club (in groups of eight or 16, respectively), which includes an accompanying safety boat and qualified sea kayak guides. A comprehensive orientation and safety drill, polar-quality paddling suits, life jackets, and other gear come with the expedition.

Both adventures are unscripted as weather, ice, and wildlife will impact availability.
