For almost twenty years, VENT has operated Birds, History, & Culture cruises aboard the venerable Sea Cloud. These programs are unlike any other we offer, combining birding, amazing cultural and sightseeing excursions, and cruising on one of the world’s most authentically beautiful sailing ships. Our next Sea Cloud departure will visit Spain and Portugal April 15–25, 2024. From Lisbon to Valencia, we’ll travel a magnificent route along the south coast of the Iberian Peninsula, focusing especially on the birds, history, and landscapes of the famed Andalucía region of southern Spain. Please join Victor Emanuel and Barry Lyon for "Spain & Portugal aboard the Sea Cloud: Birds, History & a One-of-a-Kind Ship." Through words and photographs, Victor and Barry will describe the birding and sightseeing attractions of this fine cruise, while conveying the pleasures of the “Sea Cloud experience.”
Victor Emanuel talks about his feelings about birds and nature and how they have affected his life for over 60 years. He shares some of his ideas about how you can get more out of birding and nature. The more you appreciate birds and nature the greater effect it will have on your life.
