Description

Alaska and adventure go hand in hand. What better way to become one with the wilderness than a "challenge by choice" geocaching competition in the heart of the Tongass National Forest?

A narrated transfer from the cruise pier will familiarize you with the flora and fauna known to Alaska. Upon arrival at Knudson Cove, it's all aboard. We're taking a 30-minute cruise to a remote island so that you can really become one with nature. As you prepare your competitive side, keep a look out for whales, sea lions, seals, porpoise, and even bald eagles.

Land ho! After orienting yourself with your GPS and familiarizing yourself with your new teammates, the real fun begins. Each GPS is pre-programmed with coordinates. The rules are simple. Each discovered coordinate reveals the next, and once you reveal all coordinates, you'll find your treasure hidden on the beach.

The trees here are as old as the land itself. Old growth forests that have not been touched by us humans reach high into the sky. Once all of the treasures have been found, enjoy sitting around a campfire to enjoy a nourishing snack prepared by your guide.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
