Adventure travel takes on new meaning when travelers go adventure cruising with Adventure Smith. The hallmark of adventure cruising with AdventureSmith Explorations is the ability to get off the ship and explore nature and wildlife in the company of expert naturalist guides, away from ports and tourist crowds. Adventuresmith's small ships and yachts carry only 8-148 travelers and offer an active and intimate cruise experience. This award winning company offers expedition cruises & wilderness adventures to many off-the-beaten-path destinations including Alaska, Baja, Costa Rica, Belize, Ecuador and the Galapagos, Hawaii, Peru, the Arctic, Antarctica, and Australia.
AdventureSmith director Todd Smith says, "We are the world's foremost Adventure Cruise tour operator. Our travelers will walk remote beaches and verdant rainforest, kayak tranquil coves in search of wildlife, snorkel pristine reef, or explore coastlines up close in inflatable boats.
"We are a company founded by guides and believe that a professional, knowledgeable and personal guide is the key to a successful travel experience. Our reservation agents are former expedition leaders who have lived, worked and traveled extensively aboard small ships throughout the world. This gives them the insight to help travelers choose the right trip for their interests, ability and budget.
"We are committed to sustainable tourism and contributing positively to the individuals, communities and environments encountered by every AdventureSmith traveler. Our Carbon Free Cruising campaign is a cruise industry first and offsets carbon emissions created as a result of our cruise passengers. We are proud to have been named by National Geographic Adventure as one of "The Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth" and to be the recipient of Conde Nast Traveler's prestigious "World Savers Award."
Popular trips that have multiple dates each year include Alaska's Eastern Coves Adventure Cruise, Western Coves Adventure Cruise, Hawaiian Seascapes, Galapagos aboard the Eric/Letty/Flamingo (Visit Galapagos Islands Cruise for this experience), Amazon Luxury Cruise, Antarctic Peninsula and the Kimberly Expedition
