« We are all explorers. »

We are Exploris, the new expedition cruise company. Our first trips will begin during the winter of 2023/2024.

Exploris was born out of a long-standing love for exploring these extraordinary, still-wild regions. All of the company's employees are eager to share their passion for those natural paradises.

When we travel to these latitudes, it is to fully experience the feelings of freedom and curiosity that you get from exploration. This is why we have willingly limited the capacity of our current and future vessels to fewer than 145 passengers. This allows us to visit areas inaccessible to cruise ships.

Therefore, we are equipped to take you to the farthest reaches of the world, where there is no port infrastructure, and where you will never have to wait long to disembark via our Zodiacs©.

« I promise you the trip of a lifetime. »

The Captain and crew

Highly experienced and duly certified to navigate in these very special places, our captains and officers will be proud to introduce you to the wonders of these sights. For them too, discovering each region always reveals a new experience, with its moments of emotion, anecdotes and unexpected encounters. And you can be sure that our crew will also be able to share with you the passion that all sailors feel for their ship.

The expedition teams

Our carefully selected expedition leaders will form a team of guides, naturalists and specialists dedicated to a given geographical area. Their considerable experience, the extent of their skills, and their sensitivity to respecting the flora and fauna will greatly enrich your trip. They are also storytellers and excellent instructors. Their lectures will certainly captivate you.

In addition, during some expeditions, local experts will accompany you to help you better understand the life of native communities. All of this, of course, is with a constant focus on safety and environmental protection.

Our future ships currently being designed

As a preview, we are unveiling our two projects currently under design.

Designed in the same spirit, these two sister ships will meet some of the most demanding specifications in terms of ecology, performance, safety and comfort.

Like the Exploris One, because they are designed for exploration, they will carry a reduced number of passengers, so as to give priority to the quality of the experience, whether on board or during daily landings.
