Cruise

Cruise trips have become a popular way to experience the world, and it’s no longer about being transported from one place to another where destinations on land are the only goal. It is at least as much about the journey itself and the experiences at sea.

With underwater drones, cruise tourists can experience marine life up close - in the form of a digital diving suit!

Expand the cruise trip with underwater drones

Traveling on vacation is very exciting when you get to experience something completely new and learn about unknown places with their history and culture. Aboard the Hurtigruten expedition ships and the Brim Explorer catamaran, one can travel along the Norwegian coastline, but also to the Arctic, Antarctic or the Amazon; places where one can see wild wildlife and beautiful untouched nature!

Both Hurtigruten and Brim Explorer offer their guests underwater experiences with the Blueye Pioneer on their ships. Brim Explorer has developed an electric catamaran that aims to offer a quiet and environmentally friendly experience along the Norwegian coast. Hurtigruten has Blueye underwater drones on several of their expedition ships with routes through the Antarctic, the Northwest Passage and the Arctic, among others.

...we are roaming the oceans, and to have a view underneath the surface would be a breakthrough for us. - Steffen Biersack, Expedition leader
