In Pictures: Small Ships. Unique Adventures.

Built with the destination in mind, BSSA takes you beyond traditional cruising. Founded in 1966, Blount Small Ship Adventures offers a winning combination: travel in small numbers to unique destinations, with a personal approach.

Operating a fleet of two innovative, expedition-style ships, each vessel comfortably carries up to 84 guests.
Built with the adventurous traveler in mind, their shallow draft (6’6") and patented bow ramp allow passengers to land on remote beaches and other areas of the world that larger ships cannot. Caribbean itineraries range from Belize & Guatemala to Panama in 2019.
Another patented feature, the retractable pilot house, allows their ships to pass under the low bridges of the Erie Canal, while cruising from New York City to Chicago as well the Canadian cities of Quebec and Montreal.
Guests who are often well-traveled, enjoy the casual, friendly atmosphere that Blount’s small ships offer and unique itineraries.
"Our size has allowed us to deliver unique experiences such as sailing through the Erie Canal during fall foliage or stepping directly off the ship onto remote island beaches in Belize," President Nancy Blount explains.
"And the adventures continue off the vessel, with exciting optional excursions like touring the Kennedy Space Center with a veteran astronaut." Blount’s small ship cruises cater to nature-lovers, adventurers, historians, snorkelers – essentially destination-oriented travelers.
Ranging from 4 to 16 days in length, Blount offers cruises through North America’s greatest waterways including the Great Lakes, Erie Canal, Saint Lawrence River, New England coast and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from West Palm Beach to Baltimore.
