Tour Itinerary

Cruise on the luxury expedition yacht Scenic Eclipse (built in 2019). Travel along the Pacific Ring of Fire, where real natural treasures are hidden, on the most modern yacht, where only the Spa salon occupies 500 sq.m. – this is a rare opportunity not to be missed.


Day 1. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (dinner)
7:00 p.m. departure to the sea through Avacha Bay – one of the greatest natural harbors in the world, go out to sea and begin to explore the Pacific Ring of Fire.


Day 2. Atlasov Island (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
Early in the morning we will disembark on Atlasov Island, here you will have a great opportunity for bird watching.


Day 3. Onekotan Island (breakfast, lunch , dinner)
On the Onekotan island you will have an amazing journey to the Black Lake, which is located next to the Nemo volcano.


Day 4. Trap Islands (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
These islands were named traps in 1805 by I.F.Kruzenshtern. Here, in a relatively small area, there is one of the largest sea lion rookeries in the Far Eastern part of Russia. Only on the Dolgaya rock during the mating season about 800 individuals lie down, and about 450 more puppies of these animals are born.


Day 5. Raikoke Island (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
Island – it is the tip of the active Raikoke volcano, which rises from the seabed to an altitude of about 2.5 km (551 m above sea level). One of the largest fur seal rookeries is located on the island, and a cloud of birds, mostly fulmars, constantly swarms over the island. At dawn and dusk, when nocturnal birds leave their nests to feed, and day birds return to their nesting sites, the sky above the island turns black.


Day 6. Yankicha Island (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
Yankicha Island – a beautiful place, but extremely difficult to organize landings. If we manage to enter the local volcanic caldera, we will see a truly fabulous picture: smoking geysers, bird colonies, idyllic beaches. There are more than 20 bird colonies in the Kuriles. It is estimated that one and a half million guillemots nest here, about a million fulmars, a million storm petrels, and more than four hundred thousand tayre gulls. On the Onekotan island you will find an amazing journey to the Black Lake, which is located next to the Nemo volcano.


Day 7. Simushir Island (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
In the language of the indigenous Aion peoples, the island's name means Big Island. Simushir is a chain of four extinct volcanoes surrounded by green slopes. Previously, there was a secret Russian military base here, now you can wander through the abandoned barracks and see the remnants of the Cold War era.


Day 8. Urup Island (breakfast, lunch , dinner)
Emerald green volcanic landscapes are usually shrouded in fog, and you will stroll along the local beaches in search of seals, fur seals and Pacific sea otters. If we are lucky we will be able to see Steller's sea eagles.


Day 9. Chirpoi Islands (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
In the morning, depending on weather conditions , we will disembark on Zodiac boats on Chirpoi Island, where there are two active volcanoes and many seabirds.


Day 10. Seal Island (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
The island is famous for the fact that it is here that there is a rare rookery of fur seals. The presence of fur seals on the territory is considered a sign of a clean ecology and orderly life. There is incessant noise on Tyuleniy Island. Each generation of cats makes different sounds that merge into an unusual roar – polyphony, reminiscent of the sound of a waterfall.


Day 11. At sea (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
With a wide range of activities on board, you will be surprised how quickly time passes at sea. Choose from daily activities, join an exciting discussion in the theater, or relax at the Senses Spa.


Day 12. Korsakov (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
End of the cruise.
