Blount Small Ship experience is truly about creating an unscripted journey to places others can’t reach. We wrap new friendships with a value unsurpassed in small ship cruising. Being a family run business for more than 50 years, we welcome all of our passengers as members of our own extended travel family. This means our onboard and onshore activities are always entertaining – full of humor, learning, and designed to create the bond of memories only achievable through one-of-a-kind shared experiences.

The size of our ships affords numerous and tangible benefits. As we carry a maximum of 88 passengers, you will never stand in lines, never be lost in the crowds, and best of all, you step directly off our ships and right into the destination. We pride ourselves on creating insider experiences by educating our passengers through lectures and talks from noted experts and with spirited tales from our knowledgeable and friendly crew.

Due to the intimate nature of the Grande Caribe and Grande Mariner, your experience will be an exclusive and personal one. You’re never a number, you are our cherished guest, experiencing our unique form of hospitality and sailing amongst friends. One of the highlights of any adventure is gathering in the lounge or for a meal with friends both new and old and sharing the day’s adventures. Life onboard is extremely social as you are among like-minded adventurers who appreciate taking the road less traveled. A special bond soon develops through shared experiences and tales, one that stays with you in cherished memories long after your Blount adventure ends.

The unique size and design of our ships, with their bow ramps, retractable pilot houses, and shallow draft, allows them to take you to places other ships cannot. Imagine cruising up the Rio Dulce, off-limits to larger vessels, venturing deep into the lush jungles and rain forests past thundering waterfalls and through imposing, cavernous gorges. Marvel as your skilled Captain gently brings you right onto the beach in the Bahamian Out Islands where you easily and safely step right off the ship via our ingenious bow ramp. You’ll watch with amazement as the pilot house retracts to the deck level, affording our ships the enviable distinction of being the only cruise ships to traverse the historic Erie Canal which is a monument to ingenious American engineering.
