Cruising is a popular pastime for many Australians wanting an adventurous way to explore the world. An Adventure Cruise with Peregrine offers you just that – world-class cruises to unexplored destinations, without the crowds.
For the free-spirited traveller the world is their oyster – just waiting to be explored. From exotic locations off the chartered course and trips to the ends of the Earth, there are plenty of real-life adventures out there just waiting to be discovered.
Adventure Cruising combines the real-life experiences of small-group trips with the added comfort of a well-appointed leisure cruise. Swap shuffleboard and onboard casinos for swimming off the boat and authentic, freshly cooked cuisine as you journey to smaller ports (the ones the bigger ships just can’t get to) and are taken into the heart of the destination.
New and exciting destinations
It might be skipping along the unexplored western fjords of Iceland, stopping in at Cycladic ports for grilled octopus and fresh olives, or dropping anchor for a swim at a secluded archipelago off Thailand’s west coast. Small, intimate, comfortable and local-led – this is cruising at its finest, and destinations you will fall in love with.
Croatia: Cruise along the stunning Dalmatian Coast and be charmed by old-world Croatia. Explore the rich histories of Dubrovnik and Split, swim in perfect turquoise waters off the island of Badija, taste local honey and stroll lavender fields in Hvar, and venture to Mostar in the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Cuba: This old soul of an island has many rewards in store for the curious traveller. Give the salsa a go in Havana, see how those famous Cuban cigars are made in the picturesque tobacco fields of Vinales Valley, and drop anchor in the impossibly beautiful town of Cienfuegos.
Southern Vietnam: No voyage in Southern Vietnam would be complete without the enchantment of old-world Hoi An and the blue-sea beauty of Nha Trang. But it’s the glorious sand dunes of Mui Ne, snorkelling opportunities around the likes of Ly Son island, and Southeast Asia’s oldest pottery village, Bau Truc, that set this adventure apart.
Seychelles: Sitting off the east coast of Africa in the middle of the Indian Ocean, this group of islands is the poster image for paradise. Cruise to islands both inhabited and uninhabited, walk through mangrove forests that house giant tortoises, explore World Heritage nature reserves and relax on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
The final frontier
Wanting something completely different? The ultimate bucket list destination of Antarctica offers a frigid and perilous world, the most isolated land on Earth.
Take a holiday to the end of the world, where stepping stone islands lead to the blinding white of Antarctica. Voyage through wild seas with an expedition cruise through an array of icebergs as you make your way to the earth’s most extreme continent. Antarctica has some of the world’s best whale-viewing, seal-gazing and penguin-watching experiences, not to mention the birdlife in the region. This southern land even has a modest history of its own, with British outposts – The Falkland Islands and South Georgia – exuding warmth from their pubs and old-world hospitality.
