Welcome to the WANDERBIRD

meet Rick and KarenCome with us on a sea adventure to explore the scenic coasts of Maine (2009), Newfoundland, Labrador and Greenland (2010) the Caribbean (winter 2009) and Alaska (2011) with your hosts Captains Rick and Karen. Share our dream of life on the sea on our renovated 90-foot Dutch fishing vessel, the WANDERBIRD.


We offer eco-tourism cruises that reflect our great reverence for the natural world and its creatures. You are invited to participate in informal education and interactive wildlife research projects. Join us in photographing and logging the position of whales and seabirds; and listening to and recording whale songs! We share the wildlife information we gather with several conservation and research organizations. All of our projects are carried out with the well being of the wildlife and environment as our first and foremost consideration. A portion of our proceeds are donated to local animal shelters and wildlife rehabilitation facilities!
