Anyone who truly enjoys extraordinary events would be on cloud nine with Wilderness Travel’s Total Solar Eclipse of 2013 cruise from Morocco to the Cape Verde Islands.
Travelers will head for the horizon on Oct. 22, 2013, stopping in Morocco, the Western Sahara and five of the Cape Verde Islands. On the big day—Nov. 3—the 116-passenger Island Sky will position itself along the eclipse path for a 1-hour-and-20-minute viewing of the total eclipse of the sun. According to NASA experts, this viewing point south of Cape Verde will be one of the best positions possible for eclipse-gazing.
As a special feature, joining the voyage is University of California-Berkeley astronomer Alex Filippenko, PhD, who will share his knowledge during presentations and the eclipse.
