Boat Journeys

Enjoy an inspiring boat journey along one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines or greatest rivers. Sail along Mediterranean shorelines sprinkled with ancient sites, cruise through the wildlife haven of the Galapagos, relax aboard a traditional dhoni in the Maldives or experience the wonders of Egypt on a Nile cruise.

Our boat journeys offer an appealing combination of activity, adventure, discovery and relaxation. You can enjoy shore excursions, exploring on foot, by bicycle or perhaps discovering the local history and culture, then return to your vessel to relax as you continue your journey.

Wherever possible we charter small boats exclusively for the Explore group, helping to make our boat-based holidays more informal, relaxed and flexible. Small boat journeys are a very different experience from cruising on large ships, where the sheer logistics of managing hundreds of people at mealtimes and on shore excursions can make the holiday feel busy and inflexible.      

Whether you’re tempted by the picturesque, whitewashed villages of the Greek Islands, the history-rich Turquoise Coast in Turkey or the spectacular gorges of the Yangtse in China, try a boat journey to experience a holiday with all the adventure, activity and relaxation you could want.
