The only way to travel to Marion Island is as a team member on board a South African research vessel. Communication is served by the ship S.A. Agulhas that travels Cape Town-Marion Island once a year.
Get around edit
Marion Island is not a tourist destination and access is limited to SANAP team members. 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.
Buy, eat, drink and sleep edit
There are no shops, eateries or accommodations on Marion island, other than those of the research teams.
