Brim Explorer started from a passion for the ocean. While working in Arctic ocean tourism, Brim Explorer’s co-founders Agnes and Espen saw the challenges presented by polluting, noisy and poorly-designed ships that restricted guests’ experiences and harmed the environment. ‘Brim’ is an Old Norse word that means ‘breaking wave’. And like a breaking wave that brings energy and change, Brim Explorer’s vision is to change the way we experience the ocean. By creating experiences that bring us closer to the ocean, we hope to leave our guests with a stronger environmental understanding and engagement than when they arrived. We provide ocean excursions without noise or pollution on board silent hybrid-electric ships because the epic, rugged and awe-inspiring Arctic coast deserves to be experienced from a silent, clean and comfortable ship.
