About Aqua Expeditions


Celebrating a decade of success in 2017, Aqua Expeditions is globally recognized as a leader in small ship river cruising. In 2008, founder Francesco Galli Zugaro launched the first luxury cruise on the Amazon River in Peru, home to exotic birds species and enchanting pink dolphins, quickly earning accolades for these professionally guided nature-based adventures combined with sophisticated, architect-designed five-star boutique hotel accommodations and gourmet cuisine. Strategic upgrades in 2015 to the 16-suite Aria Amazon offer a refreshed, elegant look aligned with the latest technology and sleek, comfortable skiffs. On the other side of the world, in 2014 Aqua Expeditions launched the 20-suite Aqua Mekong, now sailing the Mekong River between timeless Cambodia and contemporary Vietnam. Floor-to-ceiling picture windows confer captivating panoramas of flooded forests, colonial churches and stilt villages. Guided shore excursions include enlightening visits to remote Buddhist temples and onto Cambodia’s vast Tonle Sap Lake before continuing on to Angkor Wat. On both sides of the world, guests go deeper into each epic destination by bicycle and kayak to view little seen worlds of enduring wonders. This year Aqua Expeditions adds limited edition Founder- and Chef-hosted departures on these legendary waterways.
