In an uncertain time, we are offering you certainty and peace of mind. Our number one priority at Aqua Expeditions is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our guests and crew throughout this challenging period. As a small ship expedition company, that is ISM (International Safety Management) compliant which ensures highest hygiene and safety standards for vessels, we guarantee a maximum of only 30/40 guests aboard offering world-class experiences in exotic destinations.

Considering the evolving situation around the globe, we are adopting special measures to address our guests’ concerns about travelling and booking.

  • We have amended our booking policy in order to offer you flexible conditions allowing you to postpone your trip free of charge to provide you with peace of mind with regards to your travel plans.
  • Suspension of all scheduled departures in accordance with the travel restrictions and border closures placed by the governments in the country of our destinations, with planned departures resuming July 2020.
  • We took early, swift and decisive action to maintain strict anti-viral hygiene standards on all our vessels and are performing health screenings for all passengers prior to embarkation. We have no cases of COVID-19 onboard of any of our vessels. Aqua Expeditions has been following, and will continue to follow, the advice released by the World Health Organisation for coronavirus prevention.
To add reassurance to our customers’ travel plans, we work with Ripcord insurance, offering an option to purchase comprehensive travel insurance for any unforeseen travel modifications of your entire trip.

We continue to monitor the situation, so that we can be responsive and attend to our guests in the highest level of safety and comfort.

Centurion, Spring 2020

“The expedition has opened up a part of the world my fellow passengers and I might never have been able to truly appreciate. For us, these waters, like the whale sharks, dolphins and mantas that call them home, have become a living, breathing organism – one eminently worthy of protection. Glass in hand, my gaze fixed on the brilliant tableau of colours of the sky as the sun casts the day’s last light, the importance of the voyage I find myself on – this journey through one of the greatest gardens of our world – comes into sharper focus.”
