I have had an incredibly positive experience booking travel through AdventureSmith over the past few years. Their level of professionalism, depth of knowledge of small ship cruising, and insight into destinations around the world is impressive. My first trip was a private charter in the Mediterranean and after that was a small ship in Patagonia. Now I am looking forward to Alaska this July! I feel fortunate to have found Adventuresmith, their unique trips, and their friendly staff.

We had such a great experience traveling with AdventureSmith Explorations!!! We were going on a trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands with our two small children and it could not have been more wonderful. My kids got to see and experience things that are so unique and the naturalist on the boat were exceptional. It was a trip of a lifetime!!!

From AdventureSmith

AdventureSmith Explorations is the global leader in small ship, adventure cruise vacations. Company founder Todd Smith helped pioneer the concept of wilderness cruising that combines the comforts of a small cruise ship with the adventure of sea kayaking, hiking and exploring remote wilderness areas ashore. The company matches guests with the top names in small ship cruising as well as with intimate, boutique ships that may not make the radar of most travelers.

In moving through exotic natural environments and exploring vibrant native cultures seldom associated with more mainstream cruise itineraries, AdventureSmith Explorations dedicates its efforts to small footprint, sustainable travel and has launched a carbon-free cruising initiative. Its off-the-beaten-path destinations include Alaska, British Columbia, the Columbia River, Baja’s Sea of Cortez, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, Ecuador and the Galapagos, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Europe, Asia, the Arctic, Antarctica and Australia.

AdventureSmith ads value by helping clients select the right trip at the best price. Travelers maintain personalized service with a single Adventure Specialist throughout the process of research, booking, preparation, travel and follow up. We are true experts with first hand experience aboard every ship and trip we arrange. You'll never pay more and our sales volume means you often pay less than booking direct. 99% of our travelers say they would recommend AdventureSmith Explorations to their family and friends.
