Tauck Small Ship Cruising

Expeditions

Expedition-style cruise experiences provide today's "explorers" a unique window through which to view the often unseen world and some of Earth's rarest wildlife.

Small Ship Expedition Cruises
Antarctica

Welcome to Expeditions

Exotic lands are best explored in the time-honored way, from the sea to the shore. Sail aboard modern and magnificent expeditionary ships as you cast anchor on timeless, remote islands... as you navigate ice floes to stand on the ethereal seventh continent... as you observe rare or endangered wildlife... And once you sail where explorers before you sailed, your world is forever changed.

Designed for up-close exploration of wildlife-rich shores, each expeditionary cruise offer hands-on, eyes-open revelations of often unseen worlds in regions such as the remote islands of the Galápagos... in the Tracy Arm Fjord, with its sheer cliffs and towering waterfalls... on landings in the amazing Antarctic archipelago...

Amazing San Cristóbal Island

San Cristóbal Island, home to the rarest of the rare

When you cruise to San Cristóbal Island in the Galápagos Archipelago , you'll encounter wildlife you won't find anywhere else on Earth – on shore excursions aboard panga (Zodiac-style rafts) for "wet landings" in shallow water or dry landings on rocky beaches. At Cerro Colorado, the breeding center of giant Galápagos Tortoises, you'll see some of the ongoing conservation efforts underway to save these endangered behemoths... although the elusive tortoises, who nap up to 16 hours a day, are not easy to spot in the wild. Not so with Galápagos sea lions, however; chances are good that you'll find yourself splashing around in the water with some of these sociable, whiskered locals.

Wildlife of the Galápagos Islands

Wildlife Cruise

Sitka, Alaska

Sea Otter & Wildlife Cruise

A 3-hour cruise in Sitka provides a remarkable opportunity to observe sea otters, whales, sea lions, porpoise, harbor seals, brown bears, blacktail deer, bald eagles and a variety of marine birds, with commentary from an onboard naturalist explaining the workings of this remarkable ecosystem. The waterjet-driven tour vessel has been designed to navigate Southeast Alaska’s narrow island passages, allowing for wildlife viewing at close range.

Exploring Antarctica's Archipelago

A magical place whose mystical allure fascinates and forever beckons to return...

The magnificent great white continent of Antarctica, the most remote place on Earth, astounds with glacial landscapes and Arctic wildlife that defy description… and you enjoy a rare opportunity to view them up-close with on-board experts who have spent a lifetime studying these natural wonders in extraordinary detail. Due to changing weather and shifting glacial patterns of this remote region, your day-by-day itinerary will vary and may include Zodiac excursions to Antarctic Peninsula islands. Penguins, seals, whales and myriad species of seabirds are often seen on land and at sea; our on-board naturalists can help you identify them during your cruise.
