On November 22nd GAP’s expedition ship Explorer, hit floating ice in Antarctica, south of King George Island, resulting in a crack in the hull. and has since sunk.

All passengers onboard received evacuation training the first day they arrived on the ship. This training was put into place as passengers were assembled in the lecture hall and informed of the situation. With everyone well dressed and prepared, the passengers of Explorer were safely taken off the ship in lifeboats and are currently aboard the Norwegian passenger ship Nordnorg.

Everyone is safe and accounted for, and nobody was injured. All passengers are heading for or have arrived kome
