Guests booking an Aqua Expeditions charter can save between 10% to 15% in comparison to regular rates per person

“Since founding and starting Aqua Expeditions thirteen 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 finest hotel.
