If you are selected, most travel and expenses to/from the ports of call will be covered. You will need to have a small amount of funds to pay for local transportation/taxis/shuttles and meals up front; you will be reimbursed for these after the expedition.
The application process is competitive. If you are a finalist for an expedition, you will hear from us 10-12 weeks prior to the expedition with a request for an interview. If you do not hear from us, it is likely you have not been selected, but feel free to email us to inquire.
