Small-ship expedition cruise line Zegrahm Expeditions has announced its 2018 President’s Cruise, Sea to Sahara. Guests will join Zegrahm President Van Perry to explore many of the islands and ports that the region has to offer.

The new itinerary will take guests from the gardens of the Cape Verde Islands and sands of the Sahara Desert to the volcanic landscapes of the Canary Islands and the bustling markets of Morocco.

“I’m thrilled to be able to explore this fascinating region with fellow modern-day adventurers,” said Perry in a written statement. “Together we will explore charming Portuguese villages in Cape Verde, share tea with nomadic tribespeople in the Sahara Desert, search for endemic species in the lush jungles of the Canary Islands, and admire the magnificent medieval architecture of magical Marrakech—this truly is the trip of a lifetime!”

Guests will travel on the 100-passenger Island Sky. The recently refurbished ship offers a piano bar, library, sundeck, outdoor bar, pool deck, and restaurant. The all-suite accommodations offer ocean views. 

The expedition will be led by Zegrahm co-founder Mike Messick, and will also mark the official launch of Zegrahm’s loyalty program, the Seven Continents Club.

With almost 30 years of experience in expedition travel, Zegrahm Expeditions specializes in small-ship expedition cruises, tours, and safaris to remote and unique destinations around the world. Led by expert guides and lecturers, Zegrahm itineraries are all-inclusive, feature deluxe accommodations, and operate in all seven continents.
