Explore fascinating nature and heritage along Britain's diverse coastline

Enjoy a unique coastal exploration along the length of the British Isles and beyond, discovering the wildlife, nature, and distinct heritage of these diverse destinations.

Nature and heritage

From Dover, we sail along the south coast of England and up the west coast of the British Isles to the Hebrides before returning to Dover via different ports. This expedition is crammed full of discovery, taking in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Republic of Ireland, Scotland and the Hebridean islands. See how nature and heritage have distinctly shaped the culture of each destination. Alongside picturesque towns and historical landmarks, we’ll encounter wild landscapes, scenic coastal paths and impressive natural landforms.

Experienced Expedition Team

Bird enthusiasts will be in awe of the birdlife at the largest seabird colony in Europe on the UNESCO-listed archipelago of St Kilda. You’ll learn about the ancient history of the Isle of Man and Ireland’s Waterford, and marvel at the scenic beauty of Devon. Drink in the views on the whisky island of Islay, and be impressed by the wild beauty and colourful houses on the Isle of Mull.

The true meaning of expedition cruising will become apparent as we head for rarely visited destinations and take you on nature landings, with our knowledgeable and experienced Expedition Team always on hand to guide you.
