“We’re delighted to offer our guests the opportunity to explore remote destinations both on land and underwater with this unique series of expedition voyages,” says Mark Conroy, Silversea’s managing director for the Americas. “The Scuba Diving Expedition Voyages are designed to provide the most awe-inspiring deep sea adventures, but also include incredible destinations for snorkeling and onshore hiking explorations.”
Each Silversea Expeditions voyage is led by a team of 11 experts: naturalists,
anthropologists, geologists and historians, hand-picked for their knowledge,
passion and friendliness. Your Expedition Leader and Captain will work together
to ensure opportunities for adventure and exploration are the best possible,
taking into account prevailing weather activity. Here is a sampling of what’s available:
