Cruise Into Adventure

Join us on board for the Summer of Manatas, from July 1 to October 31, 2021, or Winter of Wonders cruises, from November 1, 2021 to May 1, 2022.


The thing I like best about the cruise is seeing snorkellers as well as divers get the chance to be inspired by the underwater world through amazing encounters with manta rays, whale sharks and huge pods of dolphins and pilot whales.
