THE AMERICAS and ANTARCTICA

Whales of Baja

The Baja Peninsula is known for pristine beaches, incredible diving spots, colorful reef life, and of course, whales! Many species of whale and dolphin come to these waters to sing, play, and mate. Sailing around the coast of the peninsula gives us the opportunity to stop at a new island almost every day to see and photograph the unique and abundant wildlife each has to offer! Blue, Gray, Humpback, and sometimes Killer whales come to the warm waters of the gulf each year during Springtime, so that's when we'll be in Baja to see them!

Tropical Gems of Panama

Come with us to the heart of Central America and see one of the greatest engineering feats ever completed, the incredible Panama Canal! Immerse yourself in the natural wonders of the rainforest located just a few hours from the US! We will search for monkeys, frogs, sloths, and brightly colored birds while walking along the famous Pipeline Road in the heart of the Soberania National park, which is adjacent to the Panama Canal.

Macaws of Tambopata, Peru

The country of Peru is incredibly rich in culture, history, and biodiversity. The Tambopata trip takes you to one of the most spectacular wildlife viewing spots in the Peruvian Amazon Basin, the Tambopata National Reserve clay lick, one of the largest in the world, which attracts dozens of macaws and hundreds of parrots every day.

Family Trip to Sacha Rainforest Lodge, Ecuador

Our Family Amazon Rainforest trip will be held in the small South American country of Ecuador which boasts one of the highest rates of biodiversity, despite its small size! We will spend our time at a first-rate rainforest lodge that has a canopy tower, a canopy walkway, a butterfly house, a beautiful lake to swim in, and many trails to walk.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Located 600 miles west off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos archipelago, also known as the "Enchanted Isles" consists of 13 main islands, 6 small islands, and numerous islets. The islands are of volcanic origin and are considered young in geologic terms with the oldest island, Espanola estimated at 3-5 million years, and the youngest, Fernandina only about 700,000 years old.

Jaguars of the Pantanal, Brazil

Ten times the size of the Florida Everglades, and stretching across Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay, the Pantanal is the largest wetland area in the world! Although it's not as well-known as the Amazon Rainforest, this rich seasonal floodplain is home to a staggering number of birds and wildlife!

Polar Bears of Churchill

Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories and the small remote town of Churchill is in the province of Manitoba, on the western shore of Hudson Bay. Because there are no roads into Churchill, one must arrive either by train or plane.

From a wildlife standpoint, Churchill is special because it’s located at the transition zone of the arctic tundra and the boreal forest biomes, thus having plants and animals from both types of habitats. Wapusk National Park is just south of Churchill and is home to one of the world’s largest known polar bear maternity denning areas! The word Wapusk is a Cree Indian word meaning “white bear”.

The next polar bear trip will be in 2023

Antarctica, The Great White Continent

Antarctica, the "great white continent" is a place that most people only dream about visiting - but we at Veterinary Expeditions want to make this a reality for you! Those who join a Vet-Ex cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula will have the opportunity to explore one of the last truly untouched wildernesses on the planet while also learning in depth about the creatures that call this rugged place home!

Visitors to Antarctica are treated not only to spectacular scenery, but also to once in a lifetime experiences that will live on in your memory forever! Your senses will come alive as you listen to the noisy penguin rookeries we'll be visiting or watch a humpback whale breach or cruise around vivid blue icebergs in the comfort of a zodiac. Antarctica is a land of dark, rugged, rocky peaks contrasting with the pure white snow and ice and the clear bright blue waters of this southern wonderland.
