Boats

Embark on a Thrilling Aquatic Adventure

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.

Accommodation:
Rembrandt van Rijn
The s/v Rembrandt van Rijn harks back to a time when sailing ships ruled the waves, when the winds dictated when and where ships sailed. Rebuilt in 1994, this former 3-mast herring lugger is the epitome of classical luxury on the open waves.
Accommodation:
Delfin II
Glide along the awe inspiring Maranon River onboard Delfin II in absolute luxury. This floating palace cruises through the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, and every suite onboard has 180° panoramic windows so you can fully absorb the incredible views.
Accommodation:
Silver Cloud
Silver Cloud is the world’s largest and most luxurious ice class cruise ship, offering superior service while visiting spectacular destinations, and inspiring adventurers around the world. The views from the ship’s private verandas are simply astonishing.
Accommodation:
MV Rudra Singha
Set sail for adventure across the plains of Assam as you take in the sights of the northeast Indian state from the comfort of a luxurious barge, the MV Rudra Singha. On your journey you’ll pass tea plantations, evergreen forests, temples, and mountainous national parks.
Accommodation:
MV Origin
Galapagos cruising took a great leap forward when the MV Origin was launched. This state of the art vessel moves swiftly between the islands, maximising your time for exploring, but it is incredibly fuel efficient so as to reduce its environmental impact.
Accommodation:
Chobe Princess
With only a select few guests onboard, the Chobe Princess feels as if it’s your very own houseboat. In fact, you can book the entire boat for exclusive use: it is a great way to relax and enjoy this intimate river safari experience.
Accommodation:
Oberoi Philae
Board the Oberoi Philae at Luxor for a journey through 5,000 years of history as you travel down the Nile to Aswan. The monuments and temples alternate with scenes of everyday life, creating a rich picture of life in Egypt today.
