Seabourn has announced the expedition team that will lead its optional Ventures by Seabourn guided kayak, Zodiac, catamaran and hiking tours for the 2019 Alaska and British Columbia 2019 season.
The expedition team includes experienced wilderness experts, scientists, historians and Zodiac operators. Ventures by Seabourn for-charge excursions are available in select destinations and can be booked in advance by guests. In addition, the expedition team will couple with several local tour operators to enhance hiking excursions, bringing an additional wealth of local expertise and information on the region to guests.
“The strength of the group lies in the combination of academic passion, old-school experience and local knowledge that they bring to the cruise schedule,” said Robin West, Vice President of Expedition Operations for Seabourn.
“This season’s expedition team will not only join the guests on Ventures outings but will add to the onboard experience of Seabourn Sojourn, with complimentary lectures on their fields of expertise including marine biology, geology, ornithology and history. They’ll further be available at every turn to point out wildlife, join guests for dinner and answer questions around the ship about the wild and pristine wonders that draw them – and our guests – back year after year.”
The complete expedition team line-up can be viewed here. The team will rotate throughout the season, and additional team members will join select sailings periodically.
