Oceanwide is a full member of IAATO , proudly upholding and in some cases, initiating its invaluable guidelines. Since , approximately sites including 20 research stations have been visited in the Antarctic Peninsula region alone.

And the new polar ships already on order for represent 42, additional berths, wiping out the record of roughly 34, new berths. Because as every polar traveler will tell you, pictures are a poor substitute for being there.

After all, nothing exists within a closed system, especially not smartphone-sporting tourists. Lindblad was a renowned environmentalist, serving on the World Wildlife Fund and African Wildlife Foundation, and his voyages were explicitly bent toward fostering an appreciation for remote and little-known areas of the planet. For his conservation work, he was awarded the Order of the Golden Ark by the Netherlands, made a Knight of the Polar Star by the king of Sweden, and had a large cove on the Antarctic Peninsula named Lindblad Cove in his honor.

Now, you could say his motives were primarily financial and that his environmental work was merely a biproduct of his business ambitions, or worse yet, a form of whitewashing. You could also say that not all travelers or companies comport themselves so graciously as Lars-Eric Lindblad. But the fact remains that a great many people who see the polar regions firsthand return with a new and very personal respect for these precious ecosystems.

Nevertheless, a balance must continually be found between exposure and exploitation, and balances are always more difficult than extremes. But all you have to do is see these regions for yourself, in the right way — as an environmentally respectful traveler with an ecologically conscious company — and the value of keeping them open to careful human visitation becomes glaringly apparent.
