On this quick small group excursion, you will hit the water running, which means you will board a special RIB boat that will move faster and closer to whales than on any larger vessel.

In the hands of a competent crew, you will feel comfortable as you leave the harbor area and head for Eyjafjord in North Iceland. Your search for whales and wildlife which requires a sense of their pattern into the Icelandic waters. We do depend on nature to provide your sightings, but a list shows that Eyjafjord humpbacks populate these waters and rarely does a sailing return without a long list of sightings so you have a great chance of getting your heartbeat up quickly. In 2016 our partners in Akureyri had 96% success on their whale watching expeditions, a pretty good percentage!

Humpback whales along with pilot whales, blue whales, dolphins, a myriad of arctic birds such as the guillermot, the razorbill, and the oystercatcher may come your way on this express show of nature. The humpbacks are becoming world famous as they cruise the fjord in the summer in a feeding frenzy, reaching the height of their activity when the warm summer sun shines most of the day and night.

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.
