Thank you Captain Mike and his crew member Tracy for making our burial at sea a memorable and peaceful experience. Captain Mike was very communicative throughout the experience. Tracy was so helpful, kind and guided us throughout the time. I'd definitely recommend contacting Captain Mike for your loved ones' burial at sea.

I had an incredible and groovy time celebrating my birthday Disco cruise on the Sea Trek Celebration! Captain Mike and his crew were friendly and accommodating. There was initially a scheduling issue; however, Captain Mike was generous enough to throw in an additional 2x hours to ensure my friends and I were able to fully enjoy ourselves. This was an initiative I truly appreciated, and it ended up working out better because we had the evening to have a blast! Captain Mike is quick to respond and has no problems answering questions. Additionally, both Mike and his crew did an excellent job keeping the boat tidy and clean. I highly recommend booking with him! Thank you again for the excellent service. Hope to book another party with you again in the future!!

Ombak putih & katharina.

Offering many of the creature comforts of the modern world, our two wooden pinisi ships, Ombak Putih and Katharina , are part of a beautiful, centuries-old maritime tradition of hand-crafted boat-building now classified as a UNESCO cultural heritage.

Built by the highly-skilled seafaring peoples of Sulawesi, using hand tools and traditional methods of construction, the design of these gaff-rigged ketches has been adapted and passed down from father to son for centuries. Interestingly, the pinisi fleet still forms the massive bulk of Indonesia’s cargo and transport network today.

History of Our Ships

Our boats are outfitted with up-to-date safety equipment and communications technology, and equipped with high-quality tenders, kayaks, stand-up-paddle boards and snorkelling gear.

Our comfortable cabins are located below decks and offer all the necessary amenities, including double beds or twin bunks, private en-suite bathrooms, lots of natural light, individually controlled air-conditioning, ample storage space, and plenty of electrical and USB outlets.

In 2014 and 2015 respectively, working with the unique legacy these vessels represent, Katharina and Ombak Putih both had major refits. Their transformation was an exercise to conserve their authenticity, using traditional materials, and shaped by highly skilled Indonesian craftsmen of the same cultural heritage that built them.

“AMAZING! No lie, this was one of the best trips my husband and I have ever taken. No, it's not cheap, but worth every penny. We wanted celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in a way we've never done, and this was the way to go!”

“We chartered the SV Katharina and crew for a family holiday in June 2023. It was the holiday of a lifetime. Everything was perfect. We are already looking forward to our next adventure with SeaTrek.”

“WOW WOW WOW! Seatrek's 9-day Whale Sharks, Corals & Dragons cruise will go down as one of the most memorable travel experiences of my life!”

“The meals were so diverse and every meal had multiple options for every kind of eater- pescatarian, vegetarian, and meat lovers! The food was always high in protein, nutritious, and had fresh, high quality ingredients.”

“We snorkeled in breathtaking coral reefs nearly every day, and even got to swim with Whale Sharks on Northern Sulawesi. Each day was an adventure!”

“The spectacular snorkelling was the best I have ever done. The boat was beautiful, and very comfortable. The local guides and crew were excellent. They catered for all capabilities and their care and thoughtfulness meant everyone was able to enjoy themselves.”

“SeaTrek is a marvellous company. Our guide, Anastasia, and the whole crew were wonderful. The experiences - the uniqueness of our tour - made this an extraordinary journey. I can't recommend them highly enough.”

“One can not overstate how wonderful and relaxing a vacation this was. Put this trip on the top of your bucket list.”

“This was an utterly fascinating, exciting, relaxing trip. The boat is beautiful, well kept and has everything you could need.. We actually slept on deck most nights. The breeze blows gently, very quiet throb of the motor, with beautiful sunrises. This was a trip of a lifetime, actually we are considering doing it again so maybe can't say its a trip of a lifetime as there may be many more.”

“Not only did we have the best snorkelling sites presented to us daily but the also opportunity to discover the birds, butterflies and Alfred Wallace, a contemporary of Darwin, through the excellent on board guides and the expert , Dr George Beccaloni, who accompanied us throughout. It was an excellent mix of interests not forgetting of course the information around the sea life that we were fortunate to see, including the oceanic giant manta ray!”

“I have travelled with these guys a number of times. The care and attention to detail they offer is second to none and having travelled on many cruise ships in my time both as a guest and a lecturer I have to say that SeaTrek blows them all away. We will be back out there in December and we cannot wait.”

“Raja Ampat Heaven!! I loved this trip so, so much! (Take me back....) What an amazing experience.... God, I hope I get a few more like that in my lifetime!”

Thar she blows! A hot spot for whale watching in L.A.’s backyard

  • Show more sharing options
  • Copy Link URL Copied!

A few times a year, something incredible happens to Jake Hensley: He gets mugged. No, not the kind where you get robbed in a dark alley. This type of mugging happens out on the ocean, when a curious whale floats alongside Hensley’s boat and eyes him and his passengers. He’s the captain of the Ranger 85, a sportfishing and whale-watching vessel for Channel Islands Whale Watching . Getting mugged by whales is a perk of the job.

“The muggings are spectacular,” Hensley said. “When that whale comes up and he’s upwind of you, you can actually smell his spout, you smell his breath because he was just feeding on some sardines. That’s how close you are to these guys.”

Whale watchers observe humpback whales in the Santa Barbara Channel.

You may occasionally receive promotional content from the Los Angeles Times.

These magical encounters happen in an under-the-radar SoCal wildlife hot spot: the Santa Barbara Channel, an expanse of ocean sandwiched between the Santa Barbara County coastline and Channel Islands National Park. From December through May, Hensley and his crew host regular whale-watching trips into the channel from Oxnard, just an hour’s drive from Los Angeles. From his perch in the ship’s wheelhouse, he gets a front-row seat for encounters with aquatic animals.

“The channel is just teeming with life,” he said. “Sometimes we’ll see fin whales, minke whales, orcas, gray whales, all on the same three-hour trip. That’s really rare to have. And it’s right here in our backyard.”

Channel Islands harbor in Oxnard, California.

In Hensley’s view, most people in Southern California have no idea there’s a marine paradise just offshore. But that may be changing: The Santa Barbara Channel was recently designated a Whale Heritage Area, one of just two such sites in the U.S. The channel received the designation for its unique and thriving underwater ecosystem where warm and cold currents meet. That mix causes nutrient-rich water to rise upward and support a whole web of life, including bait fish, sea birds and over 25 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises.

My wife and I recently joined one of Hensley’s whale-watching tours, and the channel’s sea life was on full display. Pelicans skimmed the waves as we exited the harbor, and within about 20 minutes, a pod of dolphins appeared, arcing gracefully through the water near the bow of the boat. As we made our way into the channel, a volunteer naturalist gave us a primer on the whales we might see, and Hensley used an intercom to make announcements about where we were headed.

Whale watchers on a boat in the Santa Barbara Channel.

Soon, groups of circling sea birds came into view — a sign of “bait balls” of fish below the water’s surface that attract whales, especially humpbacks. Then we saw a spout in the distance. Hensley motored closer. Soon, we were zipping between groups of humpbacks and gray whales as they spouted, glided along the surface and then dived back into the ocean’s depths.

Dolphins in water in the Santa Barbara Channel.

Now’s the time to get out there. The gray whale migration lasts another couple of weeks, and Channel Islands Harbor is hosting its 25th annual Celebration of the Whales on April 7. Stop by to learn more about the whale migration, listen to live music, and help paint a community mural. Tours at Channel Islands Whale Watching are offered until May; check out the Visit Oxnard website for info on other whale tour operators.

Bring a pair of binoculars and keep your eyes peeled — if you’re really lucky, you might get mugged.

Evan Kim, 12, ran a 2:58 in the Ventura marathon, making her the fastest girl or woman age 1-19, second fastest overall

Although she’s only 12 years old, Evan Kim is already a faster runner than I (or most people) ever will be. Last month, she ran the Ventura Marathon in a blistering 2 hours 58 minutes, averaging less than 7 minutes per mile. Times writer Noah Goldberg chronicled this speedy young runner and shed light on what makes her so fast. An iron will is certainly part of it, and an early start didn’t hurt, either: She has been running since she was 6. Now she’s training for the California International Marathon in December, where she aims to run the fastest marathon for a 12-year-old person. I think she’s an inspiration to runners of all ages, whether you’re just starting out with running or you’re a veteran marathoner.

Happy adventuring,

5 lesser-known national parks worth the trek.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

Multi-colored aurora over Sukukpak peak in Gates of the Arctic National Park.

Millions flock to the national parks every year to witness spectacular fall color light up the Great Smoky Mountains or to see the otherworldly geothermal pools in Yellowstone. Last year, in particular, was a banner year for national park visitation, according to newly released figures from the park service : The parks welcomed 325.5 million visitors to the more than 400 national park sites. The visitation numbers are up 4% from 2022, though not a full rebound from the years leading up to the pandemic when the parks saw nearly 330 million visitors.

While parks like Smoky Mountains, Grand Canyon, Zion, Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain continue to be the most popular parks in terms of the number of visitors they attract, park rangers say they’re noticing that more people are coming during shoulder season and some lesser-known parks broke visitation records last year.

“From Kaloko Honokōhau National Historical Park in Hawai'i to Congaree National Park in South Carolina, parks are attracting more visitors each year to learn about our shared history,” National Park Service Director Chuck Sams said in a press statement. “Our national parks tell our shared American story. I'm glad visitors are finding hidden gems, exploring in the off-season and finding new ways to have a great time in our national parks.”

The boardwalk in Congaree National Park passing through the swamp lands.

Still, there’s some parks, many in Alaska, that are mostly undiscovered and receive less than 1% of the parks visitors every year — and it’s not because these places aren’t just as beautiful as the most popular ones, but rather because they’re far more difficult to reach (and some even require backcountry survival skills as a prerequisite for visiting).

Ahead, see the most popular national parks, then get an intro to some of the lesser-known parks that are most certainly worth the trek.

Autumn colors in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina

America’s most popular national parks each draw millions of visitors each year. The Smokies top the list with more than 13 million visitors. The park straddles the Tennessee and North Carolina border and is a known destination for leaf peepers who come to see sugar maples, sweetgum, and hickories change colors. It’s also a popular place in late-April to June when visitors take a shot with the lottery system to get in and see the synchronous fireflies.

Here’s a list of the most popular national parks in the U.S.

  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park (13.29 million)
  • Grand Canyon National Park (4.73 million)
  • Zion National Park (4.62 million)
  • Yellowstone National Park (4.50 million)
  • Rocky Mountain National Park (4.11 million)
  • Yosemite National Park (3.89 million)
  • Acadia National Park (3.87 million)
  • Grand Teton National Park (3.41 million)
  • Joshua Tree National Park (3.27 million)
  • Olympic National Park (2.94 million)

Top 5 Least-Visited National Parks

Some of the country’s least visited national parks are only accessible by seaplanes or ferries, so their remote locations are likely what’s keeping their visitation numbers low. But these lesser-known parks are most certainly worth the trek, and adventurous visitors who make it to these more far-flung spots might see caribou in Gates of the Arctic or see the Northern Lights in the night sky over Michigan.

Here’s five of the least visited national parks, and what to see while there.

1. Gates of the Arctic in Alaska

Annual Visitors: 11,045

Five backpackers trek along the shore of Arrigetch Creek, with Xanadu, Arial and Caliban Peaks in ... [+] the background. Gates of the Arctic National Park, Brooks Range, Alaska.

With no trails (unless you count those made by the Western Arctic caribou herd), roads or pre-established campsites, this 8.4-million acre swath of untouched wilderness is north of the Arctic Circle in the Brooks Range, which is the northernmost mountain range in Alaska.

Visitors to this remote park need to have solid outdoor survival skills if they’re visiting the park on their own, though outfitters and guide services also guide rafting, canoeing, backpacking, or packrafting trips in Gates of the Arctic. The most common way to get into this wildland is to fly in with an air taxi, starting in Fairbanks with several small airlines that provide flights into communities close to the park, including Bettles, Anaktuvuk Pass, and Coldfoot.

With glacial valleys and rugged mountains, visitors come to fish for Arctic char and trout as well as float and raft the rivers and hike the Arctic valleys.

2. National Park of America Samoa

Annual Visitors: 12,135

Futi Rock in the ocean near Fatumafuti on Tutuila Island, a part of American Samoa, a group of ... [+] islands in the southern Pacific Ocean area.

This is the only national park that’s located south of the equator. The remote park about 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii, and located in the south Pacific Ocean, is spread out over three tropical islands (Tutuila, Ta’ū, and Ofu) in the Territory of American Samoa.

Visitors come here to birdwatch, see fruit bats with three-foot wingspans, and snorkel coral reefs. The park is made up of tropical rainforests, volcanic mountain slopes, and the surrounding water is teeming with reefs that are home to 950 fish varieties as well as endangered sea turtles.

The park is also dedicated to protecting Samoan the customs, beliefs and traditions of the 3,000-year-old Samoan culture.

Hawaiian Airlines has limited flights from Honolulu to Pago Pago, the capital of American Samoa.

3. Lake Clark National Park

Annual Visitors: 16,728

Lake Clark is one of the least-visited national parks, but is renowned for bear watching.

Most visitors arrive at Lake Clark National Park via small planes, as the park, which is 120 air miles southwest of Anchorage, doesn’t have any developed roads. Visitors come from far and wide to see the brown bears, who feast on salmon and hang out in spots like Chinitna Bay, Crescent Lake in the Chigmit Mountains, and Silver Salmon Creek.

The park also has some great half-and full-day hikes, including the Tanalian Falls trek, which is 4 miles round-trip where you’ll witness a waterfall over a 30-foot cliff that’s made of ancient lava.

4. Kobuk Valley National Park

Annual Visitors: 17,616

Beautiful landscape view of Kobuk Valley National Park in the arctic of Alaska.

Nation park rangers caution that Kobuk Valley isn’t for the average tourist, as the Alaskan park is best suited for experienced backcountry explorers. Getting here is a challenge, too, with most visitors arriving via an air taxi from Kotzebue or Bettles.

The must-see here are the Great Kobuk Sand Dunes, which are more reminiscent of the Sahara Desert than a national park that’s 35 miles north of the Arctic Circle. During the summer months, park-goers also boat, float, fish and photograph the landscape. Winter is a tougher visit, but for those well versed in Arctic winter survival skills may come to ski.

5. Isle Royale National Park in Keweenaw County, Michigan

Annual Visitors: 28,965

The Northern Light shine over Fedlmann Lake on Isle Royale National Park, Michigan

Isle Royale is located in the middle of Lake Superior, and those interested in seeing this remote island wilderness can arrive by ferry, seaplane or a private watercraft. The park is open April 16 to Oct. 31, and shuts down in the colder months because of extreme weather conditions.

Isle Royale is a destination for scuba divers because of the well-preserved shipwrecks. Hiking, paddling, bikepacking, and camping are other popular activities in the park, though you can also stay in cabins or lodge rooms at Rock Harbor Lodge.

South of the Canadian border in the northwoods, visitors to Isle Royale have a shot at seeing Northern lights paint the sky during the shoulder season months.

Check out Moscow’s NEW electric river trams (PHOTOS)

sea trek boat

Water transportation has become another sector for the eco-friendly improvements the Moscow government is implementing. And it means business. On July 15, 2021, on the dock of Moscow’s ‘Zaryadye’ park, mayor Sergey Sobyanin was shown the first model of the upcoming river cruise boat.

The model of the electrical boat with panoramic windows measures 22 meters in length. The river tram - as Muscovites call them - has a passenger capacity of 42, including two disabled seats. The trams will also get cutting edge info panels, USB docking stations, Wi-Fi, spaces for scooters and bicycles, as well as chairs and desks for working on the go. The boats will be available all year round, according to ‘Mosgortrans’, the regional transport agency.

Passengers will be able to pay with their ‘Troika’ public transport card, credit cards or bank cards. 

The main clientele targeted are people living in Moscow’s river districts - the upcoming trams will shorten their travel time in comparison to buses and other transportation by five times, Mosgortrans stated.

As the river trams are being rolled out, Moscow docks will also see mini-stations, some of which will also be outfitted with charging docks for speed-charging the boats.

Moscow is set to announce the start of the tender for construction and supply in September 2021. The first trams are scheduled to launch in June 2022 on two routes - from Kievskaya Station, through Moscow City, into Fili; and from ZIL to Pechatniki.

“Two full-scale routes will be created in 2022-2023, serviced by 20 river trams and a number of river stations. We’ll continue to develop them further if they prove to be popular with the citizens,” the Moscow mayor said .

VESSEL REVIEW | Sinichka – Electric commuter boats designed for Russia’s Moskva River

sea trek boat

A series of three new electric monohull commuter ferries have already begun operational sailings on the Moskva River in the Russian capital Moscow.

Built by Russian shipyard Emperium, sister vessels Sinichka , Filka , and Presnya – all named after rivers in Moscow – are being operated by the Moscow Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development (Moscow Deptrans). They are the first units of a planned fleet of 20 vessels that will serve the capital city and other nearby communities. The new ferry system will be the water transport system to be operated on the Moskva River in 16 years.

Each vessel has a welded aluminium hull, an LOA of 21 metres, a beam of 6.2 metres, a draught of only 1.4 metres, a displacement of 40 tonnes, and capacity for 80 passengers plus two crewmembers. Seating is available for 42 passengers on each ferry, and the main cabins are also fitted with USB charging ports, wifi connectivity, tables, toilets, and space for bicycles and scooters. The cabin layout can be rearranged to allow the operator to adjust the distances between the seats and to install armrests of varying widths.

An open upper deck is also accessible to passengers and is the only area on each ferry where smoking is allowed.

The ferries are all of modular construction with each ferry’s wheelhouse, main cabin, and other structural elements being built as complete, separate components. This enables the ferries to be easily dismantled for transport to anywhere in Russia by rail and then quickly re-assembled within seven days.

The ferries are also ice-capable. Recently completed operational trials on the Moskva showed that the vessels can also easily navigate under mild winter conditions with broken surface ice, though year-round operations are planned for the entire fleet.

The ferries are each fitted with 500kWh lithium iron phosphate battery packs that supply power to two 134kW motors. This configuration can deliver a maximum speed of 11.8 knots, a cruising speed of just under 10 knots, and a range of 150 kilometres.

Emperium said the transfer of rotation of electric motors to the propeller is carried out by direct drive. As a propulsion installation, a pulling rotary propeller-steering column with double screws is used. The installation of double pulling screws, with similar power, allows an operator to increase the efficiency of the propulsion system to deliver a slightly higher speed or to reduce energy consumption. This arrangement also provides the ferries with enhanced manoeuvrability necessary for navigating in close quarters.

The batteries themselves have projected service lives of 10 to 12 years and are fitted with safety features such as built-in fire extinguishers and gas vents. Quick-disconnect features allow the batteries to be easily removed for replacement or maintenance.

Some of our readers have expressed disquiet at our publication of reviews and articles describing new vessels from Russia. We at Baird Maritime can understand and sympathise with those views. However, despite the behaviour of the country’s leaders, we believe that the maritime world needs to learn of the latest developments in vessel design and construction there.
