A central feature of our expeditions is learning about the wildlife, cultures, and communities we visit from our Expedition Specialists. Expedition Specialists use their extensive training and deep knowledge to help our guests experience our expeditions through the eyes and insight of experts who have dedicated their careers to studying the places, wildlife, and cultures we visit. Expedition Specialists spend their days with our guests, leading interpretive shore walks, inflatable boat excursions, on-deck spotting, and wildlife discussions, and around the table in the main salon leading informal discussions (usually over dessert and a glass of wine!). Without exception, you’ll find that our Expedition Specialists are interesting, passionate, and inspiring individuals who will give you a lot to think about.

We hope you’ll take the time to read about the fascinating backgrounds of our Expedition Specialists below. Their experience ranges from marine biology and ecology to fisheries management, bear conservation, archaeology, anthropology, and killer whale acoustics. Enjoy!
