From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search


Marion Island and Prince Edward Island (sometimes collectively called the Prince Edward Islands, even though Marion is the larger and more visited island) are two islands of the Southern Ocean, south of – and territory of – South Africa. They should not be confused with Prince Edward Island, the province of Canada.

Get in[edit]

The main way to travel to Marion Island is as a team member. Communication is served by the ship S.A. Agulhas that travels Cape Town-Marion Island once a year.

Atlas Travel and Expeditons of London, U.K. also arrange private expeditions to the islands from Cape Town.

Get around[edit]

The only way to travel to Marion Island is on board a South African research vessel. Research team members remain on the island for 14 months, but it is also possible to visit the island as part of the relief team.


Marion Island is run as a research station by SANAP.

Marion Island is not a tourist destination and access is limited to SANAP team members.
