Our Ships

The Greenpeace fleet of ships is a unique asset in the battle to save planet Earth and protect the global commons. Our ships are used at the forefront of Greenpeace campaigning, often sailing to remote areas to bear witness and take action against environmental destruction. View the ship webcams here.

Rainbow Warrior

The Rainbow Warrior

The third Rainbow Warrior is the first ship in our fleet designed and built specifically for Greenpeace.

We are thrilled she’s now fighting with us for a green and peaceful future.
