Whether it’s attending a briefing, exploring by Zodiac©, or hiking on terra firma, an expedition cruise with Silversea will immerse you immediately in your destination. One day you could be snorkelling with sea turtles, the next day blazing a trail through an old growth rain forest while long-tailed macaques screech overhead. Every moment can amaze: a Wandering Albatross lifting its enormous wings to take flight, a whale so close you can count the barnacles on its back. Silversea Expeditions’ complimentary activities guarantee close-up encounters with a region’s unique flora and fauna, its most remote landscapes and habitats … and with the insight of expert guides who are always at hand. Silversea has assembled a team of experts from all relevant fields.
