Adventure Travel:
Small Ship Tours

Sailing Boat

The baby boomers are a driving force on the travel industry and as a result more and more travel companies are creating adventures geared to the active over 50. One of the trends that have been sparked by this generation is the small ship tours. More often then not, travelers prefer a less than 50 passenger ship to the more well known 500+ cruise lines. There are many advantages to this more exclusive way to travel.

By traveling on smaller ships you are able to go places where the larger ships cannot and are able to explore smaller towns and villages. In addition, traveling in smaller groups makes it easier to truly experience other cultures and ways of life. These tours range from touring the rivers of Europe to safari cruises. One of the leading small ship tour companies is Grand Circle Tours that cater packages to the 50 and better traveler.
