Our 7-day Ascension Island to Cape Verdes extension to our Atlantic Odyssey cruise will see us crossing the equator while witnessing the northbound spring migration of various birds. Special targets of this cruise include Northern Rockhopper Penguin, Ascension Frigatebird, Gough Island Moorhen, Inaccessible Island Rail, St Helena Plover, Tristan Thrush, Gough Bunting and a mind-boggling variety of pelagic species.

Please note: a Rockjumper leader may not accompany the expedition unless a minimum of 10 participants are signed up through Rockjumper. In the case that a Rockjumper leader is not on board, the professional expedition staff will take care of all participants that have been signed up through us.

Please note: these prices are subject to foreign exchange fluctuations.
