M/S Explorer ship cabin 2005, sunk 600 meters deep in the Southern Ocean in 2007.
The small cabin which hosted our stay on the M/S Explorer in 2005 now lies sunk 600 meters deep in the Southern Ocean. The M/S Explorer sank after hitting an iceberg in 2007: Two and a half years after our successful trip, the Explorer, owned by Canadian travel company G.A.P. Adventures, took on water after hitting ice at 12:24 a.m. EST on Friday November 23, 2007. 154 passengers and crew calmly climbed into lifeboats and drifted some six hours in calm waters. A Norwegian passenger boat rescued and took them to Chile's Antarctic Eduardo Frei base, where they were fed, clothed, checked by a doctor, and later flown to Punta Arenas, Chile. The ship sank hours after the passengers and crew were evacuated.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
