Ships:About Blount Small Ship Adventures:
Blount Small Ship Adventures operates a fleet of 2 innovative expedition-style small ships that offer up to 96 guests unique experiences along some of North America's most scenic waterways. Navigating areas usually only accessible by small private yacht, this destination-oriented travel experience allows guests to truly explore a destination. Enjoy a casual, un-crowded and friendly atmosphere where camaraderie and a common interest for discovery abound. Different by design, Blount Small Ship Adventures offers a nostalgic feel in the spirit of late founder, entrepreneur and inventor Capt. Luther Blount (1916-2006).
Blount Small Ship Adventures proudly flies the US flag.
Blount Small Ship Adventures also offers these exciting features:
- BOW RAMP
In true Blount Small Ship Adventures style, go from ship to shore literally. The patented bow ramp allows passengers to walk from the ship to sandy beaches or shore side without the need for docks or jetties. Due to coastal regulations, this feature is not used on all itineraries.
- RETRACTABLE PILOT HOUSE
A Blount invention, the pilot house of the ship is able to retract from the top deck to the deck below. This allows Blount Small Ship Adventures' vessels to cruise below low lying bridges, taking passengers where most overnight vessels simply cannot go. Visit places like the Erie Canal in ways that few other travelers ever have.
- FRESH AIR VENTILATION
All vessels feature cabins with air conditioning systems that continuously feed fresh air and remove "used" air.
- GLASS BOTTOM BOAT
Available when navigating the Caribbean and Central America this specially-designed launch allows passengers to view underwater marine life.
- GUEST LECTURERS
Many cruises include on board lectures, commentary and discussions about the local wildlife, history and culture.
Always casual, informal and un-crowded, Blount Small Ship Adventures offers the spirit of a relaxed boating vacation of a by gone era.
Depending on the destination visited, Blount Small Ship Adventures offers a variety of onboard and in-port activities. Kayak around the remote Cays of Belize, bike the pathways of Maine, and enjoy photography lessons as you sail through the scenic Great Lakes. Savor cooking demonstrations of local cuisine, sample wines of the region, learn from the expert naturalists about the different types of wildlife you encounter; or listen to a historian recount stories of the area. Wherever you travel with Blount Small Ship Adventures – they aim to provide you with opportunities to learn more about the places you are visiting.
Delicious, chef-prepared, health-conscious meals are available on all Blount Small Ship Adventures itineraries. In most cases, special dietary needs can be accommodated with advance notice. A daily menu is posted for the convenience of guests who are encouraged to check this and notify the chef of any concerns.
- LOYALTY OFFER:

This unique alcohol policy gives passengers the freedom to enjoy their preferred beverages without a costly tab at the trip's end. Mixers, snacks, barware, refrigeration and bottle storage space are provided around the clock.
