Blount Small Ship Adventures

Blount Small Ship Adventures

Luther Blount, the founder of Blount Small Ship Adventures, could have stopped the day he coined the term “small ship cruising.” By then, he was a prolific inventor and shipbuilder. He’d created ships so innovative, his competitors lined up, hoping to buy them. But he always saved the biggest innovations for his own fleet. Ships with bow ramps. Retractable pilot houses. Ships totally unlike anything else in cruising. He’d taken people deep into the nooks and crannies of the world, and along the way, discovered adventure in the places big cruises couldn’t sail.

Today, we celebrate another year of Blount Small Ship Adventures. And, we celebrate a man who kept on sailing. Who kept innovating with a passion that lives on, every time a Blount ship leaves port.

Every Blount Small Ship adventure is a little different. It comes from a once in a lifetime combination of passengers, crew and destination that make for something truly magical.

?Your journey starts the moment you step aboard. The first thing you notice is the casual atmosphere. You begin to unwind. Relax. And it’s then that you get the itch to explore. So why not take a photography class, and get to know your cameras a little better, and maybe even make your vacation pictures a little more interesting along the way? Or attend a wine tasting, featuring vintages from the city on the banks of the river you’re cruising? Or learn from an onboard naturalist, teaching you about the wildlife at your next destination?

And because Blount cruises are filled with people filled with curiosity, you’re just as likely to learn a thing or two from your fellow passengers before you come home.

The possibilities keep coming once you land onshore. Our cruises have kayaks, snorkel equipment, and bikes available. So if you’re looking to explore the port, we have just the stuff you need. Over the years, we’ve developed close relationships in many of our ports, so our shore excursions are always personal, unexpected, and rewarding. You could end up visiting a small thatched-roof village, blowing soap bubbles, and laughing with local children. Exploring ancient Mayan ruins. Or enjoying bluegrass music by the banks of the Mississippi.

When you cruise with Blount, every day is filled with possibilities.
