Private Aircraft + Helicopters

EYOS Expeditions is proud to work with Chapman Freeborn on arranging seamless, door to door private jet to private yacht adventures. With their global reach, we can deliver you to the ends of the earth in unmatched luxury and safety.

Chapman Freeborn

To enhance an already remarkable expedition, we can use helicopters to land guests far inshore for distant hikes, transports clients to Emperor Penguin colonies otherwise blocked by pack ice, or land at the top of a 6,000-foot mountain top at sunrise in the Northwest Passage.

Antarctic Aviation

Due to the challenging weather conditions around the Antarctic, flight is not a simple undertaking, but EYOS has an extensive network of Antarctic air operators.

Antarctic Fly-In, Fly-Out: Skip the Drake Passage

EYOS pioneered fly-in, fly-out private aircrafts to the Antarctic. If you prefer to join your vessel once she is in the Antarctic—in order to maximize time or to avoid the infamously rough Drake Passage crossing—we will arrange for you to fly south. 

Fly to the South Pole

EYOS can fly you to the South Pole for the full Antarctic experience.

Helicopters

If you would like to have a helicopter aboard your yacht, EYOS will source a suitable helicopter and an experienced polar flight crew.

We can provide:

  • Expedition diving management and logistics

Expedition Leaders, Guides, and Interpreters

Our Expedition Team includes world-class Expedition Leaders, dive guides, and specialists in anthropology, botany, geology, history, marine biology and ornithology. They are a fundamental part of the EYOS experience. They ensure safe operations while bringing destinations alive for our guests and providing logistical assistance and local knowledge to the yacht’s crew.

Expedition Leaders

EYOS Expedition Leaders know the remote regions intimately from both the technical and cultural points of view. They have lived or worked in these areas so they know how to manage wilderness landing operations and to ensure you are safe.

Local guides

EYOS Local Guides offer formal presentations on the region, lead briefings on sites to be visited, conduct question-and-answer sessions, and provide interpretation while onboard and ashore. Their local knowledge of conditions and anchorages are a benefit to Captains.

Dive guides

EYOS understands the very private nature of the superyacht industry. Our dive team has the personal skills and discretion to assimilate into an established team and adhere to the specific operating style of any vessel.

Naturalists

EYOS often recommends a general naturalist, who can identify everything from tundra plants to whale species. Owners and guests will find the diverse knowledge of our field experts a huge advantage in understanding a region.

Expedition Outfitting

EYOS Expeditions offers a specialist outfitting service to complement your voyage to virtually any destination. A voyage to the Polar Regions requires both special equipment and clothing in order to ensure all onboard have an enjoyable and safe time.

Clothing + Accessories

Whether stranding kits, customized parkas and clothing for guests and crew or rifles for polar bear safety, we can supply accessories which will prove invaluable as you explore the frozen wilderness.

Literature

Our literary service supplies books, maps, recommended reading lists and charts covering the destinations you plan to visit.

Expedition Yacht Charter

EYOS Expeditions works with a variety of expedition vessels available for charter worldwide. Our specialized knowledge and operational expertise will help you source the perfect vessel for your expedition, from polar icebreakers and dive support vessels to luxury expedition superyachts and nimble sailing vessels.

We know which vessels are available in each location and use our excellent network of charter brokers to find you the right vessel at a competitive rate, avoiding costly repositioning.
