Application Details
Permit Application: 2022–012
1. Applicant: Laura K.O. Smith, Quixote
Expeditions, LLC. 1498 Paradise
Point Rd., Oakland, MD 21550.
Activity for Which Permit is
Requested: Waste Management. The
applicant, Quixote Expeditions, LLC,
seeks and Antarctic Conservation Act
permit for waste management activities
associated with the operation of the
‘‘Ocean Tramp,’’ a reinforced ketch
rigged sailing yacht, and the ‘‘Hans
Hansson,’’ a motorized vessel, in the
Antarctic Peninsula region. Activities
conducted by Quixote include:
Passenger landings, kayaking, hiking,
photography, coastal camping, wildlife
viewing and potential station visits.
Wastes generated during shore-based
activities would be returned to the
vessel for proper disposal and no
poultry products shall be brought ashore
at any time.
Coastal camping activities, including
campsite selection, will follow criteria
set forth in the IATTO Guidelines for
Short Overnight Stays in Antarctica in
order to minimize environmental
impact. Emergency kits containing food
rations and camping stoves will be
brought ashore for overnight stays. All
wastes, including food waste, generated
during overnight stays will be collected
and returned to the vessel for proper
disposal following the activity.
Mitigation measures are in place to
prevent the release of any fuel used in
camp stoves if necessary.
The applicant also proposes the
operation of unoccupied aerial systems
(UAS) for commercial and navigational
purposes. UAS will only be flown by
experienced pilots with more than 20
hours of flight experience. UAS will not
be flown over any bird or wildlife
colonies and pilots will follow
guidelines and criteria set forth by
IATTO. Potential risk will be assessed
by crew members prior to each flight to
determine feasibility of UAS use in
current conditions.
Location: Antarctic Peninsula Region.
Dates of Permitted Activities:
December 1, 2021–March 30, 2026.
Permit Application: 2022–013
2. Applicant: Lisa Bolton, Scenic
Luxury Cruises & Tours, 20 Park
Place Ste. 903, Boston, MA 02116.
Activity for Which Permit is
Requested: Waste Management. The
applicant proposes to operate small,
battery-operated remotely piloted
aircraft systems (RPAS) to collect
commercial and educational footage of
the Antarctic. The quadcopter would
not be flown over concentrations of
birds or mammals, or over Antarctic
Specially Protected Areas or Historic
Sites and Monuments. The RPAS would
only be operated by pilots with
extensive experience, who are pre-
approved by the Expedition Leader.
Several measures would be taken to
prevent against loss of the RPA,
including installing floatation devices in
the case of an accidental water landing;
only flying when the wind is less than
25 knots; constant monitoring of battery
life throughout the duration of all
flights; having an observer on the
lookout for wildlife, people, and other
hazards; and ensuring that the pilot
always maintains visual contact with
the RPA. The applicant would also
operate two helicopters for sightseeing
in the Antarctic Peninsula region. No
landings would occur, except in the
case of emergency. Helicopters will be
garaged, fueled, and serviced on board
the Scenic Eclipse. Helicopter
operations will only occur weather
conditions, including sufficiently low
winds, that allow easy take-off and
landing. Helicopters will be operated by
trained, certified, and experienced
pilots. Helicopters will carry emergency
gear including cooking fuel and radios.
The applicant is seeking a Waste Permit
to cover any accidental releases that
may result from operating the RPAS and
helicopters.
Location: Antarctica Peninsula
Region.
Dates of Permitted Activities: January
1, 2022–March 31, 2026.
