Explore. Collaborate. Protect.

EPI's Eco Tours offer adults and families access to some of the world's most incredible wildlife and ecosystems, with the rare opportunity to meet researchers and local youth who are creating a positive impact in ecological hotspots. Through collaboration and hands-on action, you'll leave each of these places better than you found them. 

On every adult tour, EPI staff and local youth provide special insights about the unique ecology and culture of our project sites and what they're doing to conserve these wonderful places. Beyond experiencing the trip of a lifetime, proceeds from our Eco-Tours helps support local youth participation in our programs, which means that 10% of each trip is tax-deductible!

We look forward to sharing these awe-inspiring, limited access parts of the world with you! 

“I felt a noticeable degree of happiness having been touched by the whales. It clarified my direction in raising my children to have these experiences too."
