The Seabourn Venture is staffed with a 26-person expedition team that brings destinations to life. Team members include submarine pilots, lead kayakers, bear guides, dive masters, marine biologists, geologists, surface supervisor officers, climatologists and ornithologists. Their valuable insights are offered via formal presentations and in casual conversations over meals and during leisure experiences.

The Seabourn Venture has been created to provide super-exclusive, off-the-ship adventures for guests. Inclusive expedition experiences include Zodiacs, scuba diving and snorkeling, plus other complimentary excursions. Optional expedition excursions are available for an additional charge.

The Seabourn Venture is equipped with a great selection of “water toys.” Besides 24 Zodiacs and kayaks, there are two custom-built submarines, each with a capacity for six persons. 

Hosted by members of the expedition team, the Seabourn Venture has an “open bridge policy” providing first hand access to the ship’s command center and officers navigating the journey. (This is at the discretion of the captain.)
