Aurora Expeditions Announces Special Guest Miranda Krestovnikoff Aboard Unique UK Coastal Voyage


Award-winning Australian adventure travel company, Aurora Expeditions, has announced eminent TV presenter, zoologist, author and conservationist Miranda Krestovnikoff as a special guest on the company’s ‘Jewels of Coastal UK’ trip, which will take place May 4-17, 2023.

The unique 14-day trip will mark the company’s first visit to England and will explore some of the most historically significant and wildlife-rich sites, such as Cornwall, the Pembrokeshire Islands in Wales and Lesser Island. known from Lundy in the Bristol Channel. .

Miranda will join the trip as part of Aurora’s regular special guest program, which pairs inspiring and educational guests from around the world on trips where they can share their expertise and personal knowledge of the incredible, remote destinations that Aurora visit.

During the trip, Miranda will lecture on some of her special interest topics; as an accomplished diver she will join the trip’s dive program – a unique activity offered by Aurora on select trips – and as President of the Royal Society of the Protection of Birds she will provide additional sightings and information on the extraordinary bird life that passengers will see on this journey, including at RSPB sanctuaries.

“I have long been in love with the county of Cornwall in the South West of England, and I had the chance to explore the island of Lundy with my father, a professional diver. It is a wild and wonderful place where few people have the opportunity to go, and even cars are prohibited. The opportunity for passengers on this expedition will therefore be truly special,” commented Dewing.

“Miranda will be a fantastic addition to this trip, not only because of her diving credentials, but as Chairperson of the RSPB she is also incredibly passionate about the amazing bird and sea life that we are sure to see. .”

“I love travel and adventure and nowhere better than on our own coastline, without the need to fly overseas,” Krestovnikoff commented.

“Here in the UK we have some of the best coastal and marine wildlife in the world, with over 20 species of cetaceans and places where you can snorkel and dive with gray seals and blue sharks. For those who prefer to keep their feet dry, the colonies of seabirds around our shores are magnificent, with opportunities to get close to some of the largest colonies of puffins, Manx shearwaters and gannets.

I’ve always wanted to embark on a journey that takes in all my favorite parts of the British coast and this expedition does just that.
