Sometimes the only way to discover wildlife is by leaving land behind and taking to the water. Discover our range of scenery and wildlife cruises to get closer to the action.
A scenery and wildlife cruise enables passengers to sail to the world’s most desirable destinations for experiencing stunning landscapes and impressive nature.
There are many reasons to book a scenery and wildlife cruise. Wildlife cruises provide the opportunity to experience a different environment, discover untouched corners of the world and safely follow nature in its natural habitat. While on board, like-minded wildlife enthusiasts join you for educational talks from expert naturalists, ornithologists and expedition leaders.
Alaska may be part of the USA but it’s a world apart from anywhere else in North America. Its icy Arctic vistas are among the most breathtaking known to man, exerting a hypnotic grip that has beguiled visitors around the world. It has changed - and claimed - countless lives. You can see it in safety and comfort from your cruise ship, taking in the midnight sun in a land that never seems to sleep.
If Alaska is insufficiently remote, try Antarctica - the world’s only uninhabited continent. You will be astonished as you see this alien landscape of endless ice and snow firsthand and experience for yourself its incredible cold and astonishingly pure air. As you watch penguins and seals forage and play amid the most unforgiving wasteland on earth, you’ll reflect on man’s insignificance and vulnerability and begin to view your life and its creature comforts in a completely different way.
Moving from permafrost to almost permanent sunshine, the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest and most breathtaking coral reef system. Stretching for 1,400 miles off the coast of Australia, it is the world’s biggest single structure created by living organisms and home to an amazing array of marine life. Its unique ecosystem includes thirty species of whales, dolphins and porpoises and you will reflect on your privileged position as you watch them gambol and play in the bright blue waters. It’s little wonder that this incredible place is deeply sacred to Aboriginal peoples - you will find it an almost religious experience too.
