We’re not speaking of the documentary filmmaker, but rather the charismatic naturalist who leads Zegrahm expeditions around the world. Moore’s most recent, an Alaskan overland adventure this past July, earned enthusiastic praise, particularly for his skills in directing the cast of thousands...

Not only was the wildlife plentiful, our designated photographer onboard the Caledonian Sky, Michael Moore, was able to capture some beautiful images. Here are the top photos from our Wild Alaska and the Bering Sea, and Best of the Russian Far East expeditions.

More than a hundred years ago, a small steamship set sail from Seattle, bound for Alaska's wild coastal waterways and the annals of history. The ship was the George W. Elder; at her helm stood the venerable Edward H. Harriman, an east coast railroad man who had organized an unprecedented scientific expedition to a world as far removed from turn-of-the-century industrialized New York as one could possibly imagine.

Today, we are preparing to embark on a modern-day voyage to retrace the...

Two inseparable passions have shaped naturalist Kevin Clement's life since his childhood in the mountains of California. "I don't remember a time when I wasn't interested in the natural world or a time when I didn't love to draw," he says.

Morning light revealed a low gray cloudbank blanketing the 700-foot tall peaks of steep-sided King Island—the first stop on our Wild Alaska and the Bering Sea expedition. We bundled up, and carefully made our way down to the Zodiacs for an early morning exploration of this spectacular place. Named by Captain Cook in 1778 for a member of his party, King Island was once the winter home of a group of about 200 Inupiat. They subsisted on walrus, seals, and...
