No! An expedition jacket, yours to keep, is included in the cost of your voyage, and will be given to you on board. Acclaimed nautical gear producer Helly Hansen created this custom-made version of their SALT jacket specifically for Polar Latitudes. A nautically inspired and well-fitting jacket, it’s ideal for cruising, sailing or onshore activities. The jacket’s protective collar helps keep body warmth from escaping on windy days. Made with 2-layer HELLY TECH® breathable and waterproof fabrics, the jacket is a fully waterproof outer layer. Please note, as this is not an insulated ski parka, we recommend wearing a heavy fleece and/or thermal layers under the jacket for additional warmth in Antarctica.

We also loan you a pair of rubber boots for you to use during the voyage. They are great for getting in and out of Zodiacs and are plenty warm with a good pair of thermal socks.
