Tour Details
Join Paul D. Maley of the NASA Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society on what will be his 91st trip to see an eclipse of the Sun!

Join us to witness the total solar eclipse on August 2, 2027, which will have its greatest duration of totality (6 minutes 23 seconds) from our viewing site. This rare and remarkable natural phenomenon is not to be missed, as the next eclipse offering this much totality won’t occur until 2114. With an 80% likelihood of clear skies on the day of the eclipse, this region is the perfect location to experience this awe-inspiring event. Don’t miss the chance to be part of this extraordinary moment in history.


Itinerary is for illustration purposes only.  The final itinerary may be modified by the cruise operator at any time.  Note that changes to cruise ports of call and/or routings may occur at any time at the sole discretion of the vessel operator for any factors such as mechanical requirements, weather, world events, government mandates etc. and any factors beyond the control of Eclipse Tours, Direct Travel Inc.  Changes can be made at the sole discretion of the cruise line and may occur without notice.

Viewing the total solar eclipse will be weather dependent, and there is always a chance that passengers will not be able to view totality or view it only for a short period of time. Neither Eclipse Tours.com nor Direct Travel makes any guarantee as to the viewing of the total solar eclipse. Keep in mind that unexpected schedule changes could affect the program. Your Tour Director will keep you fully informed of any changes to planned activities. A sense of humor, flexibility, and patience will be greatly appreciated during this program and especially on eclipse day!
