Abstract

Cruiseships and yachts have visited Faraday Station in Antarctica since 1968. A case study of tourism at this British research station identifies issues that challenge station management and policymakers. A summary table of visits made facilitates the discussion. The policy requires that cruiseships arrange station visits in advance and reconfirm before arrival; and four visits are allowed each year. Faraday's relative inaccessibility helps to reduce visitor pressure to some extent. Tour operators, yacht owners, and station personnel have worked together to maximize visit benefits while minimizing disruptions to scientific research. The success of Faraday's strict tourism policy can be largely attributed to its consistency and cooperation between all parties concerned.
