What makes Aqua Expeditions’ small ships the ultimate setting for crewed private charter voyages?


  • All-inclusive programs: Our cruise itineraries range from three to seven nights (12 nights are also available for Aqua Blu), including world-class dining experiences by renowned chefs, twice daily off-board excursions, use of top-of-the-line sports equipment, laundry service (for selected ships), group transfers, and all the comforts to ensure a carefree planning process and relaxing trip.

Enabled by our small size and exclusive one-to-one level of personalized service, Aqua’s expert team will be on hand to customize every aspect of your yacht charter; from adapting menus to fit individual dietary requirements to prioritizing the activities your group enjoys the most.


  • Small group excursions: Our itineraries offer a myriad of engaging vacation activities from biking, kayaking, fishing, and snorkeling excursions to onboard cooking classes, guide lectures, and movie nights. Whether you are in search of exotic wildlife, visiting remote Buddhist temples, or hiking an active volcano, we make sure we never have more than eight to 10 guests per guide.
