Enjoy Natural Scenery & Local Life

Contact our adventure cruise specialists to discuss pre and post cruise land tours and turn your cruise into a more complete and personalized journey.

  • Follow your Expedition Team to striking coastlines, surreal sandstone formations, and rock art thousands of years old.

    No visit to The Kimberley is complete without a saltwater crocodile sighting, and we’ve seen plenty in recent scouting trips along the King George and Hunter rivers. The massive creatures can reach lengths of more than 23 feet and can weigh over 2,200 pounds!

    Seabourn Cruise Line

  • Named one of National Geographic Traveler’s 50 Tours of a Lifetime, this unforgettable voyage begins above the Arctic Circle at Spitsbergen, the “wildlife capital of the Arctic,” ventures to the spectacular, remote landscape of East Greenland, and ends in Iceland.

    Quark Expeditions

  • Discover New Zealand from the North Island to its most remote islands in the Southern Ocean. Explore natural wonders like Abel Tasman National Park and Milford Sound, and visit towns that tell the country’s story.
