Discoveries of Coastal Europe

Expedition Highlights

  • Explore two fascinating medieval UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Santiago de Compostela in Spain and France’s Mont Saint-Michel.
  • Enjoy a wine tasting and vineyard tour in Bordeaux, the world’s wine industry capital.
  • Visit three of the Channel Islands—Guernsey, Sark, and Jersey—to observe the interesting mix of French and British influences.
  • Immerse yourself in World War II history with time in both Brittany and Normandy.
  • Discover Netherlands' seldom-visited West Frisian Islands; a UNESCO World Heritage Site, these islands are home to vast dunes and tidal marshes offering excellent opportunities for birding.

Expedition Team

Ocean Adventurer

The recently refurbished 120-guest Ocean Adventurer is a superb oceangoing vessel equipped with stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull that allow her to navigate easily in the most rugged natural environments. A fleet of Zodiac landing craft allows us to explore at a moment’s notice. Each stateroom has an ocean view, an in-room music system, and en suite bathroom.
