Poseidon Expeditions - your polar cruise operator

Can I fly drones in Antarctica?

No. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones have the potential to cause more than a minor or transitory impact, particularly in wildlife rich coastal regions of Antarctica such as the Peninsula or Ross Sea areas. Their use could also detract other visitors’ wilderness experience. The International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators, or IAATO — of which Poseidon is a member — does not permit recreational use of UAVs or drones in coastal areas of the Antarctic; commercial and scientific use requires a permit. For this reason, Poseidon Expeditions will not allow the recreational use of UAVs or drones by its guests in Antarctica.
