Date of Creation
Designed to carry travelers in comfort to the most remote corners of the world, Sea Adventurer was built in Yugoslavia in 1976, refurbished in 1999 and had further upgrades in 2002. You will be impressed by this ice-strengthened ship, which carries up to 117 passengers and features a spacious forward lounge and bar, window-lined dining room and promenades. Sea Adventurer is undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation effective June 2017 and will be officially renamed the Ocean Adventurer for June 2017.
A nimble, popular small expedition ship – operating to the Arctic and Antarctica – that will undergo extensive renovations effective 2017.
History & Story
Ocean Adventurer is a comfortable vessel with spacious cabins, which all have private bathroom facilities and exterior views. This multi-million-dollar investment includes renovations to the interior of the ship, significant technical upgrades, and the addition of a new cabin category, the Owner’s Suites. The refurbishment will give the ship new bathrooms in every cabin, and upgrades to the Lounge, Dining Room, gym, and suites. Technical enhancements – including two new engines, generators, gear boxes, drive systems, and re-bladed propellers – will result in increased fuel efficiency, and a minimized carbon footprint.
Renewal effective June 2017. See renovation details above.

The upper decks are generally open for viewing wildlife and enjoying the open ocean. Our outer decks provide a good deal of open space and are accessible at any time (unless weather/sea conditions deem it unsafe).
If you forgot any essentials or need a little souvenir from your voyage, the Polar Boutique on the Main Deck is our onboard gift shop. Opening hours will vary based on the daily expedition activities. Gifts and souvenirs are great to bring home as mementos of your polar expedition. In addition to small souvenirs, our Polar Boutique offers a selection of expedition gear, including base layer clothing, waterproof pants, gloves and more.
Restaurants & Bars
There is one dining room located on the Upper Deck. If there is one constant at sea, it is that you’ll enjoy delicious meals on a daily basis.

Hours of operation will be posted around the ship, and are subject to change based on the activities planned for each day.
