Go places only Blount can take you.share
As a ship builder, Luther Blount often personally delivered new ships to a port. It’s how he found “away”. And, often he’d take a look around and think “This is a beautiful place. Other people should experience it, too.” So when it came time for Blount Small Ship Adventures to begin cruising, many of the first destinations were the ports Luther loved the most.
Today, Blount still cruises to the places that captured Luther's heart. Unique destinations you won't visit on other small ships. Like Guatemala’s Rio Dulce, a shallow river bordered by rain forest, and filled with amazing wildlife. Cruising down the river, you won't see any other cruise ships. But you will see the traditional carved wooden canoes of the local fishermen, gliding just off starboard. You'll see dramatic gorges. And villages filled with thatched roofs and warm hearted residents, ready to welcome you to their corner of this spectacular landscape.
Only Blount takes you to the small, unspoiled corners of the tropics, like Mayaguana, one of the most remote islands in the Bahamas, and home to beautiful reefs and historic shipwrecks. Or West Snake Cay, a remote, untouched coral ridge that's home to manatees and thousands of tropical fish.
And only Blount helps you explore America's great waterways, like the Mississippi, Lake Champlain, and the Hudson River. Even the Erie Canal, a waterway many thought couldn't be navigated by a cruise ship. Thanks to a retractable pilot house invented by Luther, Blount ships slip under the famous low bridges of the canal, past small towns and historic port villages, deep into the heart of America’s past. Or drop anchor in Canada’s Georgian Bay, near the North channel, and take stargazing to another level.
