Josh MacRae taught us there’s nothing so nice as messing about on the river. At Journeysmiths, we’d cheekily go a little further, extending his song to cover the lakes, seas, and oceans as well.
A boat is an exceptionally civilised way to travel. Once you’re onboard and have unpacked, you can sit back and admire the views, waited on hand and foot as you take your time making your way to your destination.
Many of the boats we use have been specially designed for expeditions. Nuclear icebreakers cut through the icy crust of the arctic waters, enabling you to safely reach the pole. In warmer, more tropical climates, we prefer to use smaller, more environmentally friendly craft which can navigate the shallower channels of the Amazon and Galapagos.
Often the boats will be accompanied by a small fleet of skiffs, zodiacs, or kayaks. These give you ultimate flexibility to go ashore and explore, returning at the end of an adventurous day to eat, relax, and sleep in luxurious surroundings.
