Wildlife Cruise Holidays

The oceans are one of the last great wilderness areas left on our planet.  Travelling by sea on a nature cruise represents the best way to see many of the world’s wildlife spectacles, as there are still wildlife paradises that are accessible by sea but cannot yet be reached by air.

Our nature cruise specialist recommends …

If you love whales and dolphins I’d recommend our Baja & Sea of Cortez nature cruise. The world’s largest concentration of cetaceans is found here, but book early as this tour sells out fast. I’d also suggest ‘Spitsbergen – Realm of the Polar Bear’ for a spectacular combination of wildlife and scenery. - Paul Stanbury

It is seldom that what is promised as the holiday of a lifetime really lives up to one’s dreams, but this one did. Because the expedition was a single charter the programme was flexible and the small number of passengers meant that we could arrange the landings to suit everyone. The Captain and his crew were friendly and courteous…we were always made welcome. Our chef, Marcello, provided superb meals, I wouldn’t like to think about preparing soup in a force 12! He deserves special thanks. The experts were unfailingly helpful. But I must save my highest praise for the expedition leader Rolfe. His knowledge and experience of the area is vast and he was generous with both his time and his expertise. He was always alert to everybody’s needs, fully appreciating that this expedition was likely to be our one and only chance of visiting the area and making sure, as far as possible, that all our own personal agendas were satisfied. He did this with unfailing good humour and charm. Thanks also to all in the office for helping with my pre-departure questions and concerns.
We thought the trip was fantastic - thoroughly enjoyed it!
This was a fantastic holiday. Well organised and plenty of advance information supplied by Rajan. The boat and its crew were top class in terms of accommodation and the service provided. The local naturalists and cultural guide were also excellent and very kind. Sujan and Bunty were also excellent and Sujan in particular was a very pro-active leader and great fun as well as being knowledgeable. We had high hopes of this holiday, but they were exceeded - a fantastic combination of wildlife, culture, the boat, guides and India!
