Adventure Cruising 

Looking back at the Peregrine Adventure Cruise Boat

Sail uncharted waters

When it comes to cruising, bigger is not necessarily better. While mega liners are very restricted in their routes and itineraries, a smaller ship means we can dock in out-of-the-way ports and drop anchor wherever we feel like it. Instead of mooring out to sea, we pull up right in the centre of town. You can stroll on and off the boat whenever you like (very handy when you forget your sunglasses). And our itineraries are flexible enough to change as the weather dictates. So if we spot some idyllic sun-soaked cove off the starboard bow, there’s nothing stopping us from dropping anchor and having a swim.

Travelers on Peregrine Boat in Croatia

A personal touch

On a small ship adventure cruise, you’re travelling with between 30 and 50 passengers…not 3000. Our boats have a maximum of 25 suites, and the small group atmosphere means you get a more personal level of service. By the end of the trip, the waiters know how you take your coffee (and, more importantly, your favourite cocktails). Your Cruise Director will greet you by name. You’ll get to know your fellow passengers and have a chance to make real lasting friendships. They’re little things, but they make all the difference. You’re not just another face in the crowd.

Wildlife

We always refer to the Galapagos as one destination. What many people fail to realize though is that there are 18 independent and unique islands. In fact, certain wildlife can only be found on specific islands. The Galapagos penguin only lives on Fernandina and Isabela; red-footed boobies are most prevalent on Genovesa; even Floreana has an endangered mockingbird named after it. As such it is clear that if you choose to see only a couple of islands, you could be missing out on a great deal of fantastic wildlife.  We are all for venturing off the beaten path, but not when you’re in the Galapagos. Visitors are required to stay on marked trails and maintain a distance of at least two metres (six feet) from wildlife. Though they might try to approach you, never touch or feed the animals, as it can be harmful to their health.
