G Adventures History
In 1990, Bruce Poon Tip founded G Adventures with nothing more than two credit cards and a burning desire to create an authentic, sustainable travel experience like nothing the world had ever seen. By offering adventure-craving travelers an alternative to the resorts, mega cruises and motor coach tours they were accustomed to, he not only changed the way people looked at their holiday time, but changed the face of travel forever. Twenty years later, the only thing that hasn’t changed is an inherent belief in the core values that continue to inspire.
G Adventures Cruises
At G Adventures their specialty lies with why they do what they do, more than where they go. That being said, destinations like Antarctica and the Arctic are deeply rooted in the company’s history of taking small groups of curious adventure seekers around the world. Over time, G Adventures has added destinations and types of travel experiences to their already-impressive list of offerings.
Why Choose G Adventures
“They are serious about their marine program.”
Whether it’s the Arctic or Antarctica, a trip filled with icebergs and penguins or one loaded with polar bears and walrus, there is an expedition cruise that’s right for you. G Adventures’s commitment to sustainable environmentally conscious travel is part of everything they do with commitments around the world, giving back to the communities and environments they travel in.
G Adventures & AdventureSmith Explorations
AdventureSmith Explorations founder and president Todd Smith knew G Adventures was unique when they bought the Explorer, the namesake of the first tourist ship in Antarctica. Todd says, “They were working to continue that ship’s legacy, and that indicated to us that they were serious about their marine program.” They replaced the Explorer with an exceptional vessel and really began to emphasis the marine aspect of their company. Today, they have boats all around the world and are situating themselves as a top-tier adventure travel company.
