Zegrahm Expeditions Celebrates 25th Anniversary in 2015
Company Offers Two Celebratory Voyages, Hosted by Zegrahm Cofounders

Seattle, WA (January 6, 2015) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small-ship cruising and overland adventures, is pleased to celebrate its 25th anniversary in expedition travel in 2015. Committed to crafting innovative and industry-leading itineraries since 1990, the company will be offering two signature expeditions, hosted by four of the original cofounders, to commemorate this milestone in its history:

The Azores & Canary Islands, April 28 – May 14, 2015, is a 17-day journey that offers a mix of quaint villages, birding, hiking, wine tasting, and colorful markets. Travelers will explore the eastern Atlantic’s volcanic islands, from six of the nine Azores islands—Sao Miguel, Graciosa, Pico, Faial, Terceira, and Santa Maria—to the Canary Islands and Madeira. Plus, guests will spend a full day exploring Seville and enjoy an optional excursion to Marrakech. Priced from $9,980 per person.

Departing October 29, 2015, the 21-day Tahiti to Easter Island explores the Marquesas, Tuamotu, and Pitcairn Islands. This Polynesian expedition is a mix of natural history and culture, visiting remote atolls, lagoons, and beaches, as well as Pitcairn Island, where most of the residents are direct descendants of the HMS Bountycrew. Travelers will enjoy snorkeling and diving nearly every day, discovering healthy reefs teeming with tropical fish. Plus, this expedition ends at Easter Island, where guests will see moai, giant volcanic stone statues. Priced from $18,480 per person.

“These expeditions are the true essence of Zegrahm, and we’re excited to celebrate our 25th year of travel with these signature voyages,” says Zegrahm President Edwin Blythe. “Not only will our travelers be visiting remote corners of the world, they’ll also participate in special celebrations, receive exclusive commemorative gifts throughout each trip, and be part of a special donation made to a charity in each of the areas we visit.

On each of these voyages, travelers will be joined by an exceptional expedition team of naturalists, ornithologists, and marine biologists, along with Zegrahm cofounders Mike Messick, Jack Grove, Peter Harrison, and Shirley Metz.
