The Ushuaia Adventure Corporation are a world class ship owner who own the vessel Ushuaia, however she is chartered to Antarpply Expeditions who are a leading operator of small ship expedition cruises to Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic islands. Antarpply is based in Ushuaia and specializes in taking small groups and individual passengers to some of the most spectacular, remote and pristine parts of the world on board the USHUAIA.
Most Antarctic passenger vessels carry more than 100 passenges, hoever with Tucan's maximum group size of just 66, you'll spend more time getting snow underneath your boots and less time waiting in line for your turn to touch the wilderness (the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators state a max of 100 people are allowed on shore at any time). In additiona, the faster cruising speed of the "Ushuaia" means that they usually complete the crossing of the Drake Passage by the morning of day 3 (rather than the evening as on most voyages) giving almost a full additional day in the Antarctic.
