15 Years Operating Award-Winning Polar Cruises


Dear Friends,

A warm welcome to Fathom Expeditions’ polar cruise world.

My veteran guide team and I have hand-crafted these select Arctic and Antarctic journeys to ensure they are comprehensive, comfortable and in-depth with lasting rewards. The years have taught us that a polar cruise is often considered a lifetime trip. We appreciate and share this view, operating a small, distinct collection of voyages annually in order to maximize the quality, benefits and experiences for our valued guests.

We will continue to offer a wide range of daily activities on each trip and during landings. These will allow Fathom clients to achieve their personal goals whether on a beach with half a million penguins, with whales amongst the icebergs, reliving history and science in the field or in a Zodiac spying polar bears.

Our past small ship cruises have won awards from National Geographic and other respected organizations. Accolades have appeared in the New York Times, The LA Times and a variety of magazines and news agencies. Most importantly, our thousands of past clients have returned home thrilled, smiling and as ambassadors for the Polar Regions and wildlife.

I hope you enjoy exploring our upcoming Polar expedition cruises and if you care to order one of our photo-filled brochures, simply give us a call at 1-403-619-4404 or drop us a note through the brochure page.

Thank you for your interest in cruising to the ends of the earth with Fathom Expeditions. The memories will last a lifetime...

For over twenty years, I have taken trips throughout the world on all 7 continents with many different first-class adventure travel companies. Fathom Expeditions’ Spirit of Shackleton expedition to Antarctica was the best planned and executed, and had the best leaders and lecturers of all my trips. In short, Fathom is the "gold standard".

Laura Flanders - Massachusetts, USA

Our adventure to Antarctica with Fathom Expeditions was extraordinary from beginning to end! Every meal was delicious; every lecture was interesting; every landing was more special than the last! The scenery took our breath away and every staff member made us feel like family. This was a dream-come-true journey and we are so glad we did it with Fathom Expeditions!

John and Mindy Spicer - Washington, USA

You promised excitement, you promised education, but most of all you promised an unforgettable lifetime experience. You delivered on all counts and suffice it to say it was much more than we expected – and our expectations were high to begin with. Thank you and congratulations. Your support staff was terrific and must be commended in equal parts for their knowledge, patience and sense of humour. Highlights are too numerous to recount, but shall anyone ever seek affirmation on whether they should undertake this adventure, simply have them call.

Paul and Kaye Beeston - Toronto, Canada

The spirit of Shackleton seemed to guide us along on our voyage to Antarctica with Fathom Expeditions. Dave German, Bob Wallace and Rob Reader all possess a detailed history of the Endurance story, and years of experience exploring its’ sacred places. Landing in our replica James Caird at Elephant Island, and South Georgia was the ultimate experience for all of us, Thank You, Fathom

Rand Shackleton - Minnesota, USA .

This was my third trip to the Peninsula, my first with Fathom. It was as though I had never seen it before. Nine full days on the Peninsula compared with 3.5 to 4 on the previous trips. The value in money is obvious. The value in beauty and understanding is incalculable. Your expertise, experience and enthusiasm meet the highest goals you have set for your company. Congratulations and thank you deeply.

Rona Levein - Arizona, USA

Our recent trip to Antarctica with Fathom Expeditions could not have been a more fantastic experience. Dave German organized and orchestrated a flawless journey from assembling an exceptional crew of experienced assistants and lecturers to providing nonstop adventure always keeping our safety primary without stifling us. Dave and his crew brimmed with enthusiasm and were unflagging in their efforts to ensure all of us enjoyed a trip of a lifetime. The warmth of each and every member made us feel a part of the team. We highly recommend traveling with Fathom Expeditions, in fact we will be returning with them to Antarctica in 2006.

Sandra and Eugene Kapetan - Los Angeles, California

Your passion and enthusiasm made the trip extraordinary, allowing us to access, see and experience sites such as Point Wild, Elephant Island and the amazing penguin rookery on Heroina Island, which will remain with us forever. We thank you for making it possible and will recommend Fathom Expeditions to anyone seeking the experience of a lifetime
