We begin our holiday with a flight to Brisbane, Australia, from where we fly to Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands and departure point for our 10-night cruise. As we travel west, we will be on the look-out out for an exciting range of cetaceans and will stop at a variety of coral-fringed islands home to Solomon Island Sea-eagle and Red-knobbed Imperial-pigeon, plus interesting Melanesian villages. The Solomon Islands lie within the so-called ‘Coral Triangle’, the centre of global marine biology.

Sara works full time in Naturetrek's busy office as the Website and Marketing Manager. However, by training, she is a Zoologist, graduating from Newcastle University where she was also the president of the university's Zoological Society. Prior to working at Naturetrek she lived and worked in British Columbia, Canada, as a wildlife rehabilitator caring for Black Bears, Coyotes, River Otters and Raccoons on a daily basis. When she wasn't providing medical care to injured wildlife she could be found hiking in the mountains, photographing wildlife, howling with wolves and avoiding bears (usually successfully). On her return to the UK she moved to the Scottish Hebrides, where she spent three years working at sea as a wildlife guide, finding Minke Whales, Otters, dolphins and eagles for her guests on a daily basis! She also spent her summers as the Senior Wildlife Officer on a ship in the North Sea, collecting sightings data on whales and dolphins, and delivering marine biology lectures to guests.
Always keen to be involved with media, Sara has presented on both live radio and TV, is regularly published in wildlife and travel magazines and has worked as a guide for Ray Mears and TV film crews for several natural history documentaries. A keen cetacean spotter, Sara specialises in leading Naturetrek's cruises in the Maldives, Hebrides, Azores and Indonesia. She has also enjoyed leading our Spitsbergen cruise, and is looking forward to leading our arctic Norway and Baja California cruises in early 2020.
