Outer Shores Expeditions
Outer Shores’ small-ship expeditions provide extraordinary and intimate opportunities for being immersed in the ancient cultures and stunning wildlife of Canada’s Pacific Coast.

President and Captain Russell Markel, who holds a PhD from the Department of Zoology at UBC, and did a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability, is dedicated to hosting travellers from around the world while fostering stewardship and supporting conservation-based research in the areas where Outer Shores travels.
