Delver’s Home Port the Trusted Launching Point for Exclusive Antarctic Expeditions

Delver Agents—a premier ship agency and supplier serving South America’s Southern Cone and Antarctica—recently witnessed the much-anticipated arrival of the Scenic Eclipse II, a polar discovery yacht renowned for its luxurious appeal and cutting-edge technology.

The ship’s arrival, accompanied by sweeping winds in the region, marked the commencement of a series of Antarctic expeditions solidifying Ushuaia as the strategic departure port for these exclusive journeys.

“We’re thrilled that the Scenic Eclipse II has chosen Ushuaia as the base port for her Antarctic excursions,” said German Manterola, Delver Agents General Manager. “Her presence not only enriches the region’s tourism but also emphasizes Ushuaia’s allure and importance on the world map as a trusted port for adventure and polar exploration destinations.”

The official Ushuaia welcome was led by Vice Governor Mónica Urquiza, joined by the President of the Fueguino Tourism Institute (INFUETUR), Dante Querciali, the President of the Provincial Ports Authority (DPP), Roberto Murcia, and representatives from Delver Agents. 

Local authorities from the Coast Guard, Health Department, and Customs and Immigration office were also in attendance, and joined the others in a ceremonial plaque presentation in recognition of the ship’s inaugural visit.

Meticulously crafted at the MAJ shipyard in Rijeka, Croatia, the Scenic Eclipse II completed its construction and set sail on April 6th. 

The luxury yacht’s arrival in Ushuaia highlights the natural beauty and geographical significance of the region and underscores the port’s strategic position as a launching point for high-end Antarctic expeditions.
