PLAN AHEAD AND BOOK WITH FLEXIBILITY AND PEACE OF MIND DURING TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY
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 August 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.

Starboard Issue 8, 2022

“Bordering Puerto Ayora, the largest and most populated town in the Galapagos, on the southern edge of Santa Cruz Island, the radiant turquoise waters see yachts, fishing trawlers and sailboard bobbing gently up and down on the waves. Amid this jumble and a raft of frolicking sea lions, Aqua Mare stands out from the crowd. “

“On trips down the Peruvian Amazon, passengers on the Aqua Nera can soak up the moody riverscape and spot pink dolphins from the top deck. What they may not realize is that the handrails and carpets of the Aqua Expeditions ship are helping to protect, in a small way, the delicate ecosystems all around them.”

“Follow in Darwin’s footsteps on Aqua Mare, the first superyacht purpose-built for expeditions in the Galapagos Islands. Traveling in the Galapagos often feels like you’ve been dropped into a National Geographic nature documentary. Located in the Pacific Ocean, roughly 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the volcanic archipelago has some of the highest levels of endemism on the planet.”
