Rentals Delivered Free to the Ship

Exclusive service offered on select sailings.


Expedition Boots

Though essential for wading in icy waters during Zodiac landings, the proper boots are bulky and heavy. By renting boots, you are guaranteed to have the best boot to stay warm and dry while gaining space in your luggage. We recommend that all guests either bring their own boots or rent our expedition boots. The rental service includes free delivery to the ship.


Waterproof Pants

A waterproof layer is essential for Zodiac transfers ashore. Our rental waterproof pants are also breathable, have side zippers for easy on and off and most importantly, the wide leg fits over the tops of the boots.


Trekking Poles

Trekking poles provide stability while ashore and are highly recommended for anyone who is uneasy walking on uneven and/or slippery surfaces.
