    ELECTRICITY

    Silver Explorer has only 220 volt/60 Hz AC power. Most modern electronic devices support dual voltages, but if you are uncertain, please verify your equipment prior to plugging it in. The electrical receptacles on the ship accept plugs of a type known as Euro plug or Type C. They will also accept plugs like the German Type F and French Type E. In particular, please be advised that devices such as generators, lamps, electric motors, electric shavers, hairdryers, clocks and some video equipment may be incompatible with the 220v/60 Hz power. A hairdryer is provided in each suite/stateroom. If you wish to bring along other equipment, you should verify if a voltage transformer or other conversion device is necessary. Ordinarily, simple plug converters will suffice for laptop power supplies and many devices with rechargeable batteries such as mobile phones, iPods, or digital cameras. We do advise that you read the labels on each particular device to determine the compatibility. Remember to bring an adequate supply of batteries for the voyage. The Boutique on board will sell only limited quantities and varieties of batteries. Because of the environmental hazards inherent in the disposal of batteries, we recommend rechargeable batteries for most applications. To protect the fragile environments where Silver Explorer sails, we request that guests retain all their exhausted batteries and dispose of them in an environmentally safe manner either after you return home. For your convenience, there is also a battery disposal box on board.

    ZODIAC LANDING CRAFT

    Silver Explorer carries a fleet of ten inflatable Zodiac boats, allowing you to explore places that would otherwise be inaccessible. To reach destinations where there are no piers and for islands surrounded by shallow waters, Zodiacs are the perfect solution. These rigid boats are specifically designed for nature study, and are very rugged, as well as safe, sturdy and durable. They are easy to board, whether at the ship or ashore, and are operated by highly trained crew. A Zodiac is an exceptionally buoyant rubber boat with an inflatable hull of multiple air-filled compartments, a feature that allows the Zodiac to float even should a compartment become deflated. A low centre of gravity makes Zodiacs very stable. Zodiacs are also agile, allowing them to easily come alongside Silver Explorer, and to manoeuvre over reefs and between narrow passages. All guests will participate in a complete Zodiac familiarisation session upon embarkation.
