Private Expeditions

We listen to you and use decades of experience to help you realize your travel dreams- be that a private yacht exploring Alaska or the Galapagos Islands followed by a visit to a remote Amazon lodge, citizen science expeditions in the High Arctictraversing the pack ice of the Antarctic, or a traditional Balinese sailing vessel exploring West Papua. We have the connections and experience to craft life-changing expeditions for you and your friends and family as we are true adventure and expedition specialists who have lived and worked in most of our major destinations.


Combining your mission and our expertise, together we craft a transformational travel experience showcasing your work and mission. We specialize in small ship and nature-based land explorations. We work with you to craft a program that will appeal to your donors and supporters and share your mission- whether you are offering a citizen science program, a symposium for research and idea-sharing or an activism based travel. We take care of all the behind-the-scenes details so your trip runs smoothly and your supporters return home with a new understanding of your organization and its unique magic.
