✔ Complete Medical Certifcate
A Medical Certificate needs to be submitted by all passengers joining our voyages to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia due to the remoteness of these areas. The Medical Certificate is to be completed and approved by your personal physician not more than 8 WEEKS BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE DATE. The completed forms must be presented to the ship’s doctor upon boarding. Boarding will be denied if part III of the Medical Certificate is not approved by your personal physician. Even if the forms have been duly submitted and approved by your personal physician, the ship’s doctor and the captain reserve the right to deny the boarding of guests who do not seem to be sufficiently fit for travel.
