Aqua Expeditions has partnered with conservationist Jean-Michel Cousteau to launch a series of 7-night cruises on the Mekong and Amazon rivers in 2017 and 2018. During these new Cousteau-hosted itineraries, guests will experience the environmentally rich Amazon and Mekong rivers with the perspective of a conservationist in addition to having time to chat with Cousteau. Each voyage will include evening talks with Cousteau and screenings of several of his award-winning films.
The Cousteau voyages are open for booking with a limited number of spaces available—the Aria Amazon’s maximum capacity is 32 passengers, while the Aqua Mekong’s is 40. Departures are available on the Aqua Mekong Sept. 15-22, 2017 and Feb. 23-Mar. 2, 2018 starting at $8,995, during which guests will explore Siem Reap, Cambodia, Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam or Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam, respectively.
