Our home in wild Alaska will be onboard the Dreamcatcher which is the best way to be directly in Bear Country. Your cozy staterooms provides comfortable sleeping quarters and a quiet place aboard the ship that you’ll be able to enjoy to yourself as you please. In addition to beds and storage for personal effects, the rooms come equipped with their own toilet and shower. The staterooms also come with several standard outlets for charging your camera, computer, phone, or whatever you bring that may need a charge during your trip. For your comfort there is a central forced air heating system and individual electric heaters in each room along with portholes. The living area is warm comfortable and is heated by a oil-fired stove which keeps the area warm and cozy. It is a great area and has a great panoramic view for guests to enjoy the sights while sitting or traveling.
Typical meals are based on international dishes, prepared with fresh, local ingredients.
Spirit of Adventure Required
Our trips are not about ticking boxes or checklists or snapping ‘trophy’ images. Our ethos is to appreciate each moment, connect with and respect nature and to experience wildlife photography in a mindful way.
It is assumed that participants have the spirit within themselves to enjoy the rigours of nature and traveling in wild places, where going with the flow is all part of the adventure. If you don’t share this outlook and our ethos, we suggest this might not be the trip for you.
We also believe it’s never too late to experience life, so age is irrelevant to us so long as you have a big heart and a strong mind.
