White Tern, Ducie Island
November 16, 2015
Blog Post

As the sky began to brighten with an orange glow, a Zodiac was lowered and the scout party hopped aboard. In the scarce light, it was clear that wind and swell were pounding the reef around Ducie Island, a remote atoll and the fourth and final island in the Pitcairn group that we hoped to visit on this trip. Time seemed to stand still as we awaited the callwould it be possible to find a way ashore?

As soon as word arrived that a safe landing had been found, we bundled...

Humpback Whale, Fernandina Island, Galapagos
July 27, 2015
Blog Post

To experience the exhilaration of a humpback whale breeching is an experience of a lifetime, a moment never to be forgotten. But to see this awe inspiring behavior near the shores of Fernandina Island, one of the few truly virgin islands in the world…. is in fact other-worldly. Perhaps the encounter this morning at Punta Espinosa was even more inspirational for me since I am celebrating two anniversaries; 25 years since we founded Zegrahm Expeditions and 40 years since my first expedition to...

Complimentary Kayaking
July 9, 2015
Blog Post

“It’s not that kayakers see anything different than the rest of the participants; it’s that they see it in a different way.”

I always say this to my small groups who have signed up for one of our onboard kayaking programs. But it’s not always true. Sometimes we do see things that others don’t.

On our recent cruise through the Norwegian fjords and on to Spitsbergen, we stopped in Reine, in the Lofoten Islands, renowned as the most beautiful village in all of...

Remote Tanzania
December 1, 2017
Blog Post

Although best known for incredible game viewing—particularly during the Great Migration, one of Nature’s grandest spectacles—Tanzania attracts its fair share of twitchers*, as well. The country is one of Africa’s best bird-watching destinations, with more than 1,100 species including a host of endemic and near endemics, as well as hundreds of migrants that visit between November and April each year. (To put that into perspective, there are around 750 species in the US and Canada combined.)...

The words, “It’s more fun in the Philippines!”, echoed in song across the landing beach during our first stop on the 2015 Zegrahm Philippines trip. We came ashore to find a welcome ceremony more intricate and heart-felt that any we could have imagined. And this phrase, which soon became thoroughly embedded in our minds, proved more and more true each day during our two-week-long expedition exploring this wonderful country.

Made up of over 7,000 islands, the Philippines is the...

Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda
June 15, 2015
Blog Post

Rumor has it there’s nothing on earth more thrilling than that moment when, after trekking all morning beneath a dense forest canopy of emerald green, you finally spy a family of mountain gorillas, or Gorilla gorilla beringei. While Uganda has been a hot spot for those wishing to experience such a rush as this, Rwanda offers just as exhilarating an adventure, with enough nuances to make it a destination that, once you learn more, you will not want to miss. Is your interest piqued?...
