PROVIDENCE, RI, June 12, 2018 – Poseidon Expeditions, the go-to company for Arctic and Antarctic expedition cruising, is giving a helping hand to marine, bird and animal life through new on-board initiatives.

Saveliev underscored the importance of offering guests off-ship activities that don’t harm the environment. He said that the kayaking, bird watching and photography excursions on Poseidon Expeditions’ cruises leave no mark, just great memories. He underscored the importance of keeping distance from wildlife being observed and photographed and to respect the fragile flora and fauna ecosystems in the frozen worlds.
Poseidon Expeditions is a member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO), which advocates and promotes the practice of safe and environmentally responsible private-sector travel to the Antarctic. These practices will also be adhered to on cruises into Arctic regions.
