This cheeky 27 foot baby whale demanded our attention in March 2017 and, in turn, we loved him up. The 48 foot Mama whale was close by encouraging him to interact. They are truly loving, gentle and playful creatures. JOIN US in 2018! This footage is featured on MSN
We will have the opportunity to do yoga, relax by the poolside, go for a kayak or take in the sunset After the Farewell dinner, we will have a Closing Circle.

Dawn Feuerberg (AKA Aurora in Spanish)
Owner and founder of Aurora Adventures, LLC.
Traveling for me is all about the connections. My ability to subtly bridge cross cultural connections between my travelers and the locals abroad is what sets me apart. At a very young age I began to travel on my own seeking out and connecting with the aboriginal, the indigenous and the authentic local life abroad. Often times finding myself being the only non-native in the region. My longstanding relationships abroad give my clients access into an enriching, in depth local experience. I am both well connected and extremely enthusiastic about sharing my access with others.
I value the genuine art of discovery travel for all ages. I create flexible itineraries within my tours that provide individuals the opportunity to make new discoveries. This tone of flexibility and openness in my approach to travel is equally matched with my attention to detail, my ability to multi-task and basically get the job done in a coherent, safe, comfortable and if desired, luxurious manner.
