Scenic Eclipse Discovery Team

Taking you further, wherever you go

The Scenic Eclipse Discovery Team are experts in their fields. They will share their insights into the environment, history and culture of each region and their personal highlights so you are ready to explore the many new horizons that await onshore.

The Discovery Team is made up of up to 20 team members on Scenic Eclipse Expedition Voyages, 15 members on Discovery Voyages and up to four members on Classic Voyages.

We’ve sought top experts in their field, from historians and geologists, to archaeologists and photographers. They’ll safely guide and educate you every step of the way, ensuring you get the most out of the places you visit. From on board lectures in the state-of-art theatre, to guided kayak excursions and nature walks, to coasting on Zodiacs in front of enormous glaciers, the Discovery Team will share with you their passion for, and knowledge of, these magnificent regions.
