Aqua Expeditions is offering private charter experiences for once-in-a-lifetime adventures sailing the Mekong River (Aqua Mekong), Peruvian Amazon (Aria Amazon and Aqua Nera) and the coastal waters of Eastern Indonesia (Aqua Blu).
Guests booking an Aqua Expeditions charter can save up to 15% in comparison to regular per person rates.
“Since founding and starting Aqua Expeditions 13 years ago, it has been my mission to create intimate, small ship expeditions to distant parts of the world,” said Aqua Expeditions Founder and CEO, Francesco Galli Zugaro.
“Now, more than ever, our company demonstrates the advantages of travelling on a small explorer vessel with our expert teams on board. Our private charter offering allows families and friends to travel together, in complete privacy with the knowledge and reassurance they are in the safest hands”.
With itineraries ranging from three to seven nights (12 nights are also available for Aqua Blu), guests will embark on an exclusively private journey to some of the most remote locations in the world.
Guests can expect highly tailored, action-packed excursions focusing on nature and wildlife, local culture, world-class dining and all the luxuries of the hotel. Aqua Expeditions’ team are on hand to personalise the experience and customised sailings to guests’ preferences, whether it be flexibility in activities or dietary preferences. Daily small-group excursions led by hand-picked local guides offer rare insights into the deepest parts of each destination.
All Aqua Expeditions’ small ships have a dedicated onboard Health and Safety Officer whose responsibility is the wellbeing of crew and guests, as well as the proper compliance and implementation of WHO and management standards. Each vessel is ISM (International Safety Management) compliant, ensuring proper standards in safe operations.
