A little bit about Small Ship Cruising

Small ship expedition cruises are a wonderful way to explore. Choose from Antarctica cruises & Sub-Antarctic Island cruises, Arctic cruises or sail the Patagonian Fiords, Galapagos Islands Cruising or New Zealand’s wonderful Fiordland.

There is something intriguing about small ship cruises and they are the perfect way to explore remote and beautiful parts of the world!   Ships range from private vessels to cruises with as little as 12 people, up to cruises of around a maximum of 200 people depending on the region.

Latin America cruise options include cruising the mystical Amazon Jungle, the exotic Galapagos Islands or remote fiords of Patagonia, or perhaps transiting through the Panama Canal.

Antarctica cruises and cruises to New Zealand Sub Antarctic Islands are a once-in-a-lifetime experience offering the opportunity to discover colonies of amazing penguins and fur seals, many different types of whales as well as the incredible scenery of icebergs and massive glaciers. While in the north our Arctic cruises take you to see polar bears in the wild, and other unique species of wildlife such a walrus, narwhal and caribou.

In New Zealand we have a range of small vessel sailing and cruising options.  Explore the famous Milford & Dusky Sounds, enjoy summer cruising while dolphins frolic at your bow in the Bay of Islands or head south to explore Macquarie Island & the New Zealand Sub-Antarctic Islands.  

While on board a small ship cruise you will enjoy exquisite local and international dishes, comfortable cabins and lovely social spaces.  We have cruises to suit all budgets and interests.
