Custom Alaska Cruises and MV Sikumi are proud to announce our first in a series of "Donation Months". We will be selecting certain non profits, charities and conservation organizations throughout the year that we will be making donations to based on bookings. Each group will get a month, and all booking during that month will result in a donation to that organization.
During the month of November, Custom Alaska Cruises will donate 5% of any standard cruise booked for the 2014 season aboard the small luxury vessel, MV Sikumi, to Panthera, one of the leading big cat conservation organization in the world!
We, the owners of MV Sikumi, believe it it our duty to give back where we can, and through this you can feel good as well knowing your trip to Alaska helped support local or global conservation or another given charity.
In addition, passengers booking their cruise the week of June 20th-26th will be joined by Panthera’s Snow Leopard Program Director, Dr. Tom McCarthy, who will serve as a nature guide, sharing details on the region’s wildlife and landscape. Dr. McCarthy has been featured in National Geographic as well as other notable publications.
Prior to his 20-year career conserving Asia’s iconic snow leopards, Dr. McCarthy studied brown bears, black bears, and mountain goats on the islands and mainland of Alaska’s majestic southeast coast. In addition to guiding you through this incredible landscape, Dr. McCarthy will give special presentations on the snow leopard and Panthera’s conservation efforts on behalf of ‘Asia’s Mountain Ghost.’ Join Dr. McCarthy to learn about the first-ever GPS collaring study of snow leopards lead by Dr. McCarthy, which is helping to unlock the secret lives of these elusive and rarely seen wild cats and more. We realize it’s not snow leopard habitat, but it’s half way there…
If you have been thinking about a trip aboard the MV Sikumi, there is no better time than now. Know your money went to help a great cause.
