Meet Ekaterina Dzhikiya - the marine biologist that will lead the group and provide you with plenty of amazing and fun facts about marine mammals. Having studied orcas as part of FEROP project in far east and having observed marine mammals at the Shantar sea for several seasons she knows the answers to pretty much any question you might come up with. It would be a shame to miss out on such an enriching experience knowledge-wise. How to get here
There are regular flights to Komsomolsk-on-Amur from Vladivostok (Aurora company, http://www.flyaurora.ru/en
) or from Khabarovsk (Khabavia company, http://khabavia.ru
, website only in Russian). However, local flights are often delayed due to weather conditions and planes don't go every day, so we recommend you fly to Khabarovsk (KHV). There are buses going directly from Khabarovsk airport to Komsomolsk-on-Amur (6 hours drive). We can arrange a private transfer for you upon request (costs not included). Additional information.
- We will do our best to provide you the best possible experience; however, the route may be adjusted due to weather conditions.
