This one-of-a-kind tour will allow you to travel with exceptional and knowledgeable experts in the heritage, culture, flora and fauna of the Caribbean. On this voyage, we are fortunate to have the services of distinguished Caribbean anthropologist and UWI Honorary Research Fellow, Dr. Lennox Honychurch as our Facilitator.
A lecturer and tour leader with wide expertise in areas of Caribbean history, indigenous people, folklore, politics, geography and ecology, Dr. Honychurch has extensive experience in guiding and giving lectures to university-organised cruises, including for Cambridge University in the UK and various universities in the United States. His past trips include several visits to Venezuela, up the Orinoco River, in the Dutch Antilles ABC islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao and all of the Lesser Antilles and Trinidad and Tobago up into the Virgin Islands.
