Our guests have a wonderful time on board our vessels, watching the scenery float by and spotting wildlife while enjoying fabulous food and the companionship of their shipmates and Crew. Guests are free to be as active or as relaxed as they please and the Crew will fit in with their wishes as much as possible. Some of our guests are happy to spend most of their cruise relaxing on board, while others are tempted by the coastlines where we anchor off, to go ashore and explore.
Our Crew have a depth of knowledge about the coasts we visit and can provide extensive information for the curious. Guests are accompanied onshore by a specialist Wildlife Guide to ensure they are safe and to get the most enjoyment out of their shore trip.
Our guides know the best walks, the local history and the local wildlife habitats. They not only identify wildlife that is spotted, but often insect and plant life too. Going ashore can be anything from a stroll along a beach to a more challenging hike up a hill to get the best views. One-way coastal walks are popular, to be met by the boat tender once guests reach their destination. Any guest who would like to explore or go for a longer trek on their own can usually be accommodated; the Crew would brief them on basic safety guidelines which guests would agree to adhere to before they set off.
