British Columbia, Alaska, the Sea of Cortez, the Galapagos Islands, Euro River Cruises on and on are the small ship voyage venues. Small Ship Voyages offer the most intimate contact with the environment and the rewards of nature at its grandest, travel at its most relaxed yet sophisticated, and friendships with seasoned, educated travelers that will expand your horizons.
I have traveled on both the big ship as well as the small ship. There is no comparison between the two if your focus is nature, relaxation and the destination. If you want the crowds, confusions, neon, herd instinct then by all means take the big ship or pretend and go to the mall at Christmas time or Saturday. They are similar experiences. But, if you want a genuine naturalist to share the flora and fauna with, then board that zodiac as it departs the Small Ship to explore. Listen to the glaciers calv or take a deep breath as your sea kayak glides along some tropical back bay. Whales, whales and more whales. Glaciers, coral beaches, Euro canals and rivers….it is there at an intimate level that a seasoned traveler can appreciate.
Mary Jo Muncy, the owner of Small Ship Voyages, knows the destinations, knows the ships and has traveled many of the routes. She knows what it feels like to sit on a small ship off Cabo San Lucas on New Year Eve and watch the giant fireworks display, to dive with sea lions in the Sea of Cortes, to travel by zodiac amongst the ice flows of Glacier Bay. To paddle sea kayaks and snorkel with the fish. She has twelve years experience with small ships and enjoys putting together group tours and romantic getaways. Honeymoons, anniversaries, a surprise sweetie moons, or show the ol’ girl you still love her, the Small Ship Voyage is the intimate ticket!
