Spangler Seminars heads out to sea for the third time in June 2013 for Science at Sea in Alaska. Come aboard Holland America with our award-winning naturalist and Steve Spangler to explore the inside passage of Alaska. Travel to Juneau, Glacier Bay, Skagway, Ketchikan and Tracy Arm while experiencing one of a kind excursions and lectures only available to Science at Sea participants.
The roundtrip leaves from Vancouver, BC, Canada on June 22, 2013 and returns on June 30, 2013.
This trip isn’t just for teachers – it’s for anyone who wants to learn more about the geography, history, wildlife and more. This is an educational experience of a lifetime, so bring your children, your friends, significant others and extended family. This is a family affair.
To come along with us on this special interactive and educational trip, you need to register in two places. First, register for Science at Sea on our website. Our Science at Sea seminars and naturalist-led excursions are unique and are only for our group. You will also get a special pre-cruise kickoff class with Steve and our Naturalist, John Scheerens, to prepare you for the trip on June 22nd.
The cost of the Spangler part of the event is $1695 per person. This includes the cost of all of our customized shore excursions in each port, ground transportation, the onboard instruction with our naturalists, and a few surprises that are part of any Spangler experience. You may register additional people under your primary registration for the discounted fee of $1495 per person. Remember… this fee includes the price of all of the shore excursions and entitles family members and friends to participate in all of the onboard workshops and experiences.
Next, choose your cabin aboard the Holland America Zuiderdam. The Spangler Science team has partnered with Holland America to offer special group discount pricing to everyone registered for Science at Sea (a fee structure not available to the public). The rate for your room will be separate from your event registration fee above and will be paid directly to Holland America Line. Once you’ve registered for the Science at Sea event, our personal Holland America Line cruise consultant will contact you to help guide you through the cabin selection.
Why Should I Travel with Science at Sea?
You can expect the same high level of support and professionalism that you’ve come to count on with all Steve Spangler Science experiences.
This is an experience with the elite Steve Spangler staff and time with Steve himself. We have people in place to make sure you have an amazing experience, hands down. Every detail is planned and organized ahead of time. All you need to do is get on the boat and the rest is taken care of for you. We will take excursions as a group, but also allow for time on your own for souvenir shopping or exploring.
Make sure you bring a camera to record your personal experiences, but don’t worry about documenting everything. The entire experience is recorded by our Emmy-Award winning videographer, edited and distributed to all Science at Sea guests.
Our naturalist, John Scheerens, is extremely knowledgeable about Alaska, especially the science side of Alaska. From the marine life to geology, to glaciers and the history of the area, John knows it all. Ask him any question you may have about Alaska and he will either know it or be able to get an answer in a short time.
While at sea, we offer exclusive educational opportunities where John share information on the science of the area – wildlife to look for, points of interest and helpful sightseeing tips. John knows all of the secret spots to eat, where to visit, what to see and what not to miss.
Our excursions are unique and special to our group. No one else on the cruise gets the opportunity for the same experiences. Our tours are in-depth and travel to remote locations.
