  • visit the "Valley of Geysers", a one-day helicopter excursion
  • a two-day jeep tour to the volcanic plateau with trekking to the crater of the active volcano Mutnovsky and Goreliy (overnight at a base in the mountains)
You can participate or not in any part of the programs.
Orcas
Orcas are traditionally considered not only one of the most beautiful and intelligent inhabitants of the seas, but also one of the most ferocious. At the same time, few can resist the charisma of this remarkable animal, seeing it face to face in the ocean. Killer whales conquer the hearts of not only the casual viewers, but also those who are engaged in their direct study. The complex behavior, complicated social structure and incomprehensible language (each group having its own dialect) make the orca one of the most interesting objects of study. Right now you have a unique opportunity to join the research project, to participate together with biologists in monitoring the killer whales and other inhabitants of the Far Eastern seas. The whole team will move along the Kamchatka coast on a yacht, a catamaran. Looking for great shots we will go to sea in motorboats.

During the cruise we will live on an ocean sailing catamaran. There are three double and two triple cabins equipped with wardrobes and shelves. There are two restrooms with showers. The third shower is located on the stern of the vessel, there you can rinse off the salty ocean water after swimming or diving.

In the evenings coming back from a busy adventurous route, you find yourself in a warm and cozy houseboat with hot water and a delicious dinner. Catamaran is equipped with engines, which makes it possible to follow the route, even in calm weather. With favorable winds the ship goes sailing. Everyone who wants can participate in the management of the ship and with the sails. All guests will be able to train kayaking in calm conditions. There is additional equipment on board such as two motor boats, compressor, 6 tanks, SUP - sets.

Traveling on the coast of Kamchatka on a sailing catamaran, you become a real explorer and can consider yourself a pioneer!
What kind of unusual animals and birds we can see?
Kamchatka is a paradise for naturalists! The Pacific Ocean, mountain rivers with exotic landscapes, caldera and crater lakes are a rich laboratory for nature lovers. The flora and fauna of the Peninsula are unique natural phenomena. We can meet lots of marine animals such as orca, humpback whale, gray whale, fin whale, sei whale, minke whale, sperm whale, porpoise, sea lion, spotted seal, sea otters and fur seals. A large amount of birds such as Pacific gulls, Pelagic Cormorant, red-faced cormorant, kittiwake, pigeon guillemot, thick-billed murre, common murre, old man, hatchet and horned puffin.
On the bank we can meet eagles, bears, fox, squirrels, marmots and even mountain sheep.
