Tell us about the expedition team

The best expedition team ever. They were so enthusiastic about what they did and worked well as s team and had great respect and trust in each other. They were very informed about their areas of expertise and had incredibly entertaining presentations. They were truly the gold standard for expedition guides.

Tell us about the Hebridean Sky

The suite was beautiful and spacious, very comfortable bed and wonderful windows. Lots of community space for learning, relaxing and visiting with friends. Had music at night, a nice bar and the food on board was plentiful, delicious, had many options for each meal and was beautifully presented.

Tell us about the Kayaking

The best kayaking of my life. The kayak guides were awesome. Very safety conscious, enthusiastic and always knew the best places to go. They were great instructors for new kayakers and took pictures for us to give to us for our memories. They even brought hot chocolate as a treat one day. This was my favorite part of the trip. Loved being so close to the wildlife and icebergs. It was magical.

Something Else?

Have vacationed with many expedition outfitters but the ship’s operator was the best and should be the industry standard.

They were responsive and knowledgeable about what every ship offered and did a good job of steering us to the perfect ship.
