Travel With Purpose!

Expedition Cruise Expert, 15 years local

An expedition cruise is for the adventurous traveler who seeks authentic experiences through experiential travel. You want to be a traveler, not a tourist. You want to be an active participant in your own adventure. The best way to see the Galapagos Islands is by small ship expedition where the ships cruise around the archipelago of approximately 19 islands. Each of the island possesses its’ own wildlife and unique landscapes. Some are extinct volcanic craters inhabited by endemic bird species while others are sandy beaches where sea lions spend the afternoon bathing in the sun. Still more of the islands afford you opportunities to photograph sally lightfoot crabs digging their way through the sand.

About your expert

My passion for cruising got me in trouble at a very early age. Fresh out of college I wanted to travel and see the world, but I wanted to get paid for it! Not content to backpack through Europe like most of my friends, I found myself working as a Purser on board a cruise ship in the Caribbean. Do you remember “The Love Boat”, specifically Gopher? Yes, that was me. I can certainly tell you that working on a cruise ship is nothing like that. Gopher made it look like a walk in the park, but it is much more difficult than it looks. Once I got started, I was hooked. Today, I am a Travel Advisor and Blogger, sharing my years of experience and knowledge with my clients Whether you are a new to cruising or have many voyages under your belt, finding the right expedition cruise can be challenging and you can spend many frustrating hours researching your options. I provide the right tools and expertise to help my clients make informed choices about the best ship for their needs. Planning a trip should be fun, and it is my mission to give you the best experience possible.
