Greetings to Everyone visiting my web site:
I know that many of you are awaiting word on space availability for our upcoming trips
to the arctic. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for the long wait. As you
are probably aware we only do a few trips per year and keep the group size small to make the best possible experience for all our trip participants and to keep our impact to a minimum in the fragile places we visit! All 2016 dates are posted at this time and we have spaces available on almost every departure. So please check my website for dates itineraries and prices or email me directly for space availability.
I also wanted to let you know I will be the Expedition leader on a trip to the Falkland Islands and South Georgia in late October and November 2016 for Cheesemans Ecology Safaris. Please come join me on board the comfortable and stable expedition ship “Sea Spirit” to South Georgia and the Falkland Islands on a Southern Ocean adventure!
We have an excellent expedition staff for this adventure to the other end of the earth, and our itinerary is planned to ensure maximum time on shore at visitor locations to take advantage of light conditions and weather. We will be using the very capable Sea Spirit for this voyage, which comfortably holds 100 passengers and the 16 expedition staff. I have the pleasure of working with one of the finest expedition staffs that I have ever known including; Doug and Gail Cheeseman (the Cheesemans themselves!), well known photographers Ron Niebrugge, Scott Davis and Oliver Coray; Well known South Georgia locals Tim and Pauline Carr; natural historians Joe Kaplan, and Edward Rooks; Tashi Tenzing Sherpa, grandson of Tenzing Norgay world famous sherpa who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary to the summit of Mt. Everest and other excellent staff.
