About our Boat Journeys

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 small group boat journey to experience a holiday with all the adventure, activity and relaxation you could want. 

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.      

Never travelled with us before? We've answered the top questions about our small group adventure holidays.
