The famous oceanographic expert Jean-Michel Cousteau will share tales from his lifetime of underwater exploration on three Crystal voyages this spring, fall and winter joining one sailing each aboard Crystal Symphony, Crystal Serenity, and Crystal Esprit. Cousteau will share tales and experiences from his lifetime of exploring and documenting the world’s oceans, as well as his ongoing work to continue the legacy of his famous father -Jacques-Yves Cousteau.

The Crystal voyages set to feature Cousteau’s intriguing presentations are, fittingly, geographically diverse.

In addition to lectures tailored to the region of each sailing, Cousteau will offer interactive and engaging presentations discussing his father’s legend and his own legacy, as well as insights into ocean life that most captivates him, including the delicate balance of the roles of orcas and sharks. Cousteau, who is the founder of the Ocean Futures Society, will also share with travellers his conservation efforts.
