About Aqua Expeditions


A leader in luxury small ship river cruising, Aqua Expeditions sails into our first decade by continuing to innovate along the world’s greatest waterways. Offering the first five-star journeys on Peru’s Amazon River, home to exotic bird species and enchanting pink dolphins, Aqua Expeditions quickly earned accolades for professionally guided, nature-based adventures aboard our custom, architect-designed ship with indulgent hotel accommodations and gourmet cuisine. Today the 16-suite Aria Amazon delivers that river’s most advanced, world-class guest experience on every journey.

In 2014, Aqua Expeditions launched the 20-suite Aqua Mekong on the Mekong River, sailing between timeless Cambodia and contemporary Vietnam. Floor to ceiling picture windows confer captivating panoramas of flooded forests and stilt villages. Guided shore excursions include remote Buddhist temple visits and Cambodia’s vast Tonle Sap Lake en route towards Angkor Wat.

Guests go deeper into each epic destination by bicycle and kayak to little seen worlds of enduring wonders. To exceed expectations of today’s most sophisticated travelers, Aqua Expeditions regularly upgrades both state-of-the-art vessels.

Hosted Departures

Limited edition departures hosted by Founder Francesco Galli Zugaro and our renowned chefs Pedro Miguel Schiaffino and David Thompson enhance the experience in 2018, as do exclusive Amazon voyages with the legendary Jean-Michel Cousteau.
