1. How big are the groups?

Each group is limited to 12 participants. Small groups are an important ingredient in adventure travel. They allow for more interaction and more personalized service throughout the itinerary.

 

2. What is included in the tour price?

Accommodation aboard the M/V Catalyst; meals on the boat, starting with lunch on day 1, finishing with breakfast on day 7; all internal transportation (excluding transfers) and all day-trips as outlined in the itinerary.

 

3. Are these “educational” tours?

Yes, in the broadest sense of the word, “educational”. We visit many natural sites, and have talks and discussions on many aspects of natural history and wildlife. Our guides will help to interpret what you see. There is also an excellent library of books on board for your reference.

 

4. How do we travel during the tour?

The 74-foot yacht-vessel, M/V Catalyst, is our primary means of transportation between Petersburg and Juneau. Excursions are by Zodiac motor boat and kayaks.

 

5. What are our accommodations like?

The cabins on board are very comfortable. Each one has its own porthole and space to store belongings. Passengers share 2 heads (washrooms) on board, one of them has a shower. Two cabins have private washrooms. The main salon comfortably seats all passengers.

 

6. What about the weather?

Temperatures range from a low in the upper 30s˚F at night, to a possible high of 70˚F on sunny days. Rain is a possibility anytime during the sailing season.

 

7. When is payment due?

A non-refundable deposit of $750 (plus insurance if you require it) is due at time of booking and will reserve your place on the tour. Payment of the full price is due 120
days before departure. Cancellation charges are applicable and are outlined in the “Terms & Conditions” section of our brochure.

 

8. What should I take on the tour?

There is a detailed “What to Take” list in our Trip Kit, which we will send to you after you have booked the trip.

 

9. What meals are included?

All meals on the boat are included, starting with lunch on day 1, and finishing with breakfast on day 7. The cook on board prepares delicious and healthy meals.

 

10. Can you arrange my flights?

We would be happy to take care of your air arrangements. ElderTreks offers personalized flight itineraries — not group flights. Stop over en route, come in a few days early, or extend your stay. Call us for a customized itinerary.

 

11. What if I would like more information?

If you have any further questions about the trip, please do not hesitate to contact our office for additional information. A Trip Kit containing further details on the destination will be sent to you once you have booked the trip.
