After the volcanoes, we'll go on three-day cruise across the Pacific ocean: we'll go along the coast of Kamchatka on catamaran, swim with orcas, dive with sea lions and get acquainted with biologists from FEROP project, who study orcas in Kamchatka since 1999, and will listen to their interesting lecture.We also will meet seals and sea otters and watch the northern sea birds.
We will go along the coast of Kamchatka, swim with Steller sea lions and whale watch. The most exciting thing is our acquaintance with killer whales! First we will visit the field camp of FEROP biologists who study orcas in Kamchatka since 1999, and will listen to their interesting lectures, and then go in search of these amazing intelligent mammals and even swim with them in the ocean! We also will meet seals and sea otters and watch the northern sea birds.
It is possible to extend the program by visiting Mutnovsky and Goreliy volcanoes (2 days), and by climbing Avachinskiy volcano (1 day). This trip is recommended to combine with tour on the Kuril Lake, the territory of the South Kamchatka Federal Preserve (July 20-24), where we will be watching brown bears and their salmon hunting.
