Founded in 1990, G Adventures is an adventure travel operator specialising in expedition-style tours for small groups.
G Adventures offer a variety of travel styles; from all-encompassing city tours, rail journeys and adventure holidays; to expedition cruises in several of the world's most remote regions. The destinations they offer are far-reaching and include Antarctica, the Arctic, the Galapagos Islands, South East Asia and Europe.
G Adventures 'Marine' Expeditions
The expedition cruises offered by G Adventures operate under their 'Marine' banner and there is a number of ways in which they differ from the more 'traditional' type of cruise holiday.
Firstly, with guest capacities ranging from 16 (Queen of the Galapagos, Xavier III) to 134 guests (G Expedition), there's a real emphasis on forging a close bond between the guests and crew onboard.
Then there's the destinations they visit; these aren't classic cruise destinations by any means - you won't be arriving into ports lined with souvenir shops or embarking on lengthy coach journeys to big cities. Instead, you will venturing out into isolated areas seeking discovery and indulging yourself in unexpected, spur-of-the-moment opportunities.
Lastly, the accompaniment of G Adventures very own CEO (Chief Experience Officer) will ensure you really enjoy every element of your trip. Their expertise, knowledge and hands-on approach really separates G Adventures from similar itineraries offered by other operators.
Small ships for BIG ADVENTURES
The fleet of ships operated by G Adventures are small in size, giving them the manoeuvrability required to access landing zones and places that are out of reach for larger ships. They are also equipped with all the necessary expedition equipment including Zodiacs, snorkelling equipment - even complimentary wet weather boots!
Life onboard a G Adventures ship manages to be both relaxing and educational. All of their ships are comfortable, modern and offer superbly appointed public areas. The accommodation options are generously sized and stylishly decorated and provide a pleasant atmosphere in which to wind down at the end of a day of exploration.
To enhance your experience further, you will be treated to an excellent schedule of lectures, presentations and demonstrations. These are great way of learning more about the region you are visiting and will help you get more out of your time ashore.
No matter which G Adventures' destination you choose, there will always be plenty of opportunities to get off the ship and explore. Whether by Zodiac, a hidden landing zone or port of call, it's these moments that your G Adventures experience really comes to life.
On selected itineraries you can also take advantage of optional excursions, like camping out overnight on an ice field in Antarctica or kayaking alongside the Arctic's mountainous glaciers, just metres away from majestic polar bears.
