Where does Hebridean Sky cruise to?
WHY WE LIKE IT
Expeditionary cruising in style. The Hebridean Sky is ideal for those looking for a very comfortable expedition ship with an adventurous spirit: her rear step allows easy access into zodiacs for those not keen on a gangway. There is also the chance for guests on board to get involved in a variety of scientific research projects. Any data collected contributes to a better understanding of how the changing climate is affecting the Antarctic continent.
