Expedition & Adventure Cruises

Experience an adventure like no other!

Let everyone else zig
– you’re gonna zag!

Dozing in a lounge chair by the pool is not your thing. You’re not into sitting still. You want to get out there! You need to move and climb and row and cycle and get dirty. You want your cruise to be an experience like no other. You need adventure. You need adventure cruising by Extraordinary Adventures!

Exhilaration included

Whether alone or with a group of friends – the ones you bring with you and the ones you meet on board – you want to be engaged, and you’re not afraid to get physical. You’re not intimidated by leading the quest or being led into unchartered waters by an expert adventure guide – as long as you don’t miss one exhilarating moment!

None of that means you’re willing to sacrifice delicious food and exemplary service. You don’t eat for indulgence – you eat to fuel your next adventure! But, you deserve to be wowed from your pre-adventure breakfast to your post-adventure dinner and everything in between – including that late-night snack you probably shouldn’t have but absolutely will! And, what better way to soothe those exhausted muscles than a relaxing massage or hot tub!?

Yes to kayaking, hiking, cycling and scuba!

When it’s time for excursions, your idea of fun is kayaking in the Sea of Cortez in Baja, California, Mexico, hiking up the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, cycling along the northern edge of Scotland’s Shetland Islands, spelunking in the Caves of Sagada in the Philippines, ballooning in Cappadocia, Turkey, and scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

But, you don’t just want to get out there. You want to get really out there! Far out there! Like taking an expedition ship to Antarctica to hang out with penguins and to Cape Town, South Africa, to swim with sharks. You want a river cruise down the Nile in Egypt to explore ancient pyramids and up the Amazon in Brazil to trek through thick rainforests (with maybe just a little partying in Rio de Janeiro first). You want to help hoist the sails on an authentic sailing ship in the Mediterranean Sea and take a zodiac deep into glacial waters in Ketchikan, Alaska.

You’re going to beat down that unbeaten path. You’re going to discover hidden gems that few rarely find. You’re throwing caution to the wind and breaking the mold. Schedules are for the office. You need to be free and march to your own drum. Extraordinary Adventures can find you precisely those expeditions that will unleash your spirit and ignite your mind and body!

What Our Clients Say

Working with Scott and Laura on our cruise was so easy! I gave them a budget, what I wanted, and potential dates. They did the rest! Gave me checklists for what to pack, suggestions of things to do, and the best plans for the biggest bang for our buck. They even checked on us when we returned to be sure we had an enjoyable experience.”
