Since founding and starting Aqua Expeditions thirteen years ago, it has been the vision and mission of Francesco Galli Zugaro to create intimate, small ship expeditions to distant parts of the world.
Now, more than ever, access is the new measure of luxury. What Aqua has stood for since the very beginning comes to the forefront, demonstrating the advantages of small explorer vessels in bringing families and friends on travels to the remote Amazon River of Peru, the Mekong River in Southeast Asia, the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador, and the pristine coastal waters of Eastern Indonesia.

The advantages of small ship expeditions

With specially-curated experiences and an engaging 1:1 guest to guide ratio, our boutique expedition vessels offer personalized service, onboard our spacious private and entertaining spaces and on our tailor-made excursions.
Venturing into unspoiled sanctuaries to witness the beauty of nature and wildlife, we sail to remote destinations with minimised human interaction, secluded from crowds.
