Continental Capers Travel Center, Inc. has been serving travelers since 1970, creating unique itineraries for their clients for nearly fifty years. We pride ourselves on offering meaningful travel experiences that enrich the lives of our travelers.

For nearly twenty years we have also offered limited and specialized nature oriented tours through our "Voyages of Discovery" tours. These unique tours have been related to astronomy and astronomical events as solar eclipses, northern lights, Arizona astronomy, archaeology & geology, and the both very rare transits of Venus visible in our lifetimes.

Although these journeys are often based around a singular event (as a solar eclipse), we orchestrate our tours to give you a memorable and unique experience based on our entire sightseeing itinerary.

Whenever Necessary

Our astronomical adventure tours utilize the special talents of Marian Cohen, an independent travel consultant, who has more than thirty-five years experience in the travel industry. She is often aided by her husband, Dr. Howard L. Cohen, an emeritus professor of astronomy at the University of Florida, where he taught astronomy and physical sciences for more than thirty-five years. Professor Cohen is also a founding member of the Alachua Astronomy Club, Inc. (See escorts for more details.)

We also partner with the best tour companies that specialize in the regions we visit. This allows us to provide exceptional quality, unbeatable value and personal service to every passenger on our tours.

Limited Group Size and Professional Escorts

Small groups, personal service
Small Groups, Personal Service

Personal service is our game. We intentionally limit the total number of guests on our tours to small groups (about 30 or less). So, every guest has full access to our professional staff escorting each trip.

This includes a trained Continental Capers professional, the services of a scientific escort, and, when necessary, a group tour leader and local professional guides.
