Seattle-based Zegrahm Expeditions is launching its 2021 small-ship voyages collection.

Excursions with the educational travel company include a team of experts, such as marine biologists, ornithologists, anthropologists, naturalists and historians, offering a one-to-one staff to guest ratio.

The newest collection includes seven expeditions spanning the earth’s far reaches, including Tracing the West Coast of Africa, discovering the Mediterranean’s Mosaic, exploring Wild Ireland and Scotland, a Polar Bear Quest in Svalbard, Circumnavigating the Black Sea, and a journey through the Crossroads of Empires from Cyprus to Jordan. 

Event planners often prepare for the worst, but one thing they likely didn’t anticipate was a global pandemic when selecting event cancellation insurance policies for their 2020 gatherings. Panicked planners began contacting Marcia McKinney, owner of Northeast Insurance Advisors, in late February and early March, but as meetings and events ground to a halt, they were already out of luck.

“It’s kind of like trying to buy homeowner’s insurance as your house is starting to catch fire... it’s too late,” says McKinney.

William Zehnder Sr. and his wife, Emilie, bought a former hotel in 1928.
