Allowing your children to learn important lessons away from the classroom and away from the screen. Expanding their worldview to learn new skills and build confidence, sparking a curiosity that ignites a passion to keep exploring.
Encountering first-hand exposure to different cultures, young minds are pulled from their comfort zones to gain an understanding of different perspectives, improving their ability to connect with others and enhancing self-growth.

Bringing history to life could involve immersing children in a fantastical storyline. We have staged a mythical Greek Odyssey, in which a family’s younger members were called upon by Apollo to undertake a heroic quest to find Odysseus and save the Gods who were in crisis.
An epic journey ensued, involving a series of fabled encounters with fearsome monsters and majestic gods and goddesses. With each day a new myth was woven into the narrative and the children lived and learned Greek mythology firsthand. And as their knowledge grew, so did their spirits and their courage!
We have designed educational voyages to the Spice Islands of Indonesia, where nautical navigation was taught at the helm of a traditional sailing yacht and interactions with diverse cultures brought richness to already breathtaking surroundings.
Guests have followed in the footsteps of Genghis Khan through the expansive landscapes of Mongolia to learn lessons in art, geology, and anthropology. The dense forests of Costa Rica have formed a wild backdrop for a living biology class.
