Day 2

This is placeholder text that will contain a one to two line itinerary option.

Day 3

After breakfast, we make our way to Saaremaa, an Estonian island in the Gulf of Riga. Saaremaa's harbor is full of local fishermen returning with their catch. During the summer this area gets about 20 hours of daylight each day, perfect for exploring the village.

Day 4

We cruise on to the island of Hiiumaa or to historic Tallin for another perspective. The coastline is beautiful, treed and rocky.

Day 5

Sailing into Russia to visit St. Petersburg, the cultural capital of Russia: few cities in the world have art galleries, concert halls, museums and theaters to compare with these. This is a land of stark contrasts still struggling to regain its economic footing, yet its heritage is amazing. The city seems to go out of its way to show visitors a good time.

Day 6

Our guides will show us The Hermitage - which is worth a day all by itself - and the cathedral that houses the remains of Russia's czars. There are elegant orthodox churches and lovely hotels.

Southeast Alaska


Day 1

Board your yacht in Juneau, the state's capital. This is an interesting city to tour, nestled right at the foot of spectacular mountains.

A half-day's cruise brings you to Glacier Bay, a national park where the number of visitors is tightly controlled. In addition to glaciers, you will see bears, seals and sea lions, eagles, and humpback and killer whales.

Day 3

A short day's cruise will put the yacht at the fantastic fjord know as Tracy's Arm. We'll likely see glaciers "calving" icebergs and lots of black bears at water's edge.

Day 5

Heading south down Stephen's Passage you'll see more whales than you can count today as this area is one of their favorite feeding grounds.

Day 1

Arrive in Puerto Vallarta."Night of the Iguana" was filmed here in 1964 at Mismaloya beach. The house Richard Burton and Liz Taylor rented at 445 Zaragoza, complete with their furnishings, is a tourist attraction. Puerto Vallarta's old town has cobblestone streets and donkey traffic while the newer section is lined with luxury hotels.

British Columbia (Vancouver)


Day 1

Meet your yacht in Vancouver's green Stanley Park and tour the nearby aquarium. One of the greatest cities of the Pacific Rim, Vancouver has many elegant galleries, shops and restaurants worth visiting.

Day 2

Head north to Pender Harbor, called the Venice of the North. This complex maze of inlets, islands and coves is a popular scuba destination. You will find numerous nearby freshwater streams and lakes make fishing tempting. Those who enjoy more active sports may want to launch the kayaks.

Day 3

You can't cruise British Columbia without traveling up Princess Louisa Inlet to view Chatterbox Falls. This incredible inlet is now a nature preserve. Its dramatic scenery is fjord-like and the falls are spectacular.

Day 4

Enroute to Desolation Sound Marine Park, make a stop at Powell River, the largest town on Canada's Sunshine Coast. Stop for locally made crafts in this comfortable frontier town where wildlife abounds.

Day 5

Desolation Sound is the largest and best-known marine park in BC. It features the warmest saltwater north of Mexico. Hunting oysters, clams, prawns and salmon makes for an enjoyable day. There are so many anchorages; it is hard to choose -- perhaps Pendress Sound, where hiking trails lead to a freshwater beaver lake. Prideaux Haven is a must. The snow-capped peaks of the Coast Mountain soar from the tide line to 4,575 feet.

Day 6

Heading south, it's a pleasant run down Discovery Passsage to Campbell River on the East Coast of Vancouver Island. This river is the salmon capital of the Northwest and the fish bring plenty of bears and eagles.
