Adventure Life

I just returned from a month-long adventure in the Indian Ocean. It began in the Seychelles on a four-day cruise on Variety's Pegasus where we visited several islands, explored shallow waterways and swam and snorkeled. The small (42 guests) catamaran was perfect for such excursions. I then spent two days alone in Mahe (the largest island) during which time I explored on my own.

The next step of my adventure was flying to the Maldives where I boarded Silversea's ship, the Silver Discoverer. This luxury liner had only 72 guests and was small enough to feel cozy while still offering amazing accommodations and pampering. Aboard the Discoverer, we sailed to some remote (and uninhabited) islands in the Maldvies archipelago, using the Zodiacs to reach some amazing beaches and reefs. The experts on board (ornithologists, marine biologists, anthropologists, etc) made sure we were well-versed in the wildlife and culture we encountered.

After we left the Maldives, we sailed to the islands of Southern India to experience a combination of culture and nature. I ended my stay in Colombo on my own, taking private tours of the city arranged by Adventure Life, including my favorite, a walking "foodie" tour in which we sampled various Sri Lankan street foods.

Last spring I stumbled upon Adventure Life, and simply told them what I wanted (to visit places in the Indian Ocean where I had never been). They tailored my adventure to my specific wants and needs (a solo, older, female traveler), and put together this great itenerary. Franny worked with me before and during the trip, and when minor hiccups occurred during the stay, she was easily accessible to answer my questions and find solutions. All in all, a great trip arranged by a company who cares about its travelers and is willing to work with them to design the perfect adventure!

That sounds like an amazing and memorable trip! Thanks for posting and would you mind giving me an approximate budget that you worked with for this trip? It is one that my husband and I would love to personalize and add to our bucket list.

I was very fortunate to stumble across Adventure Life on the internet, when looking for a cruise to the Galapagos. I had several particular requests and between Mary and Kate, much to my delight, they were able to fulfill each request. Our cruise aboard the Galaven included everything I wanted to see and do. The price was perfect, the food was fabulous and the staff and guides were wonderful. This was the first time I had used Adventure Life. I now have a huge level of trust in their company. Thank you. Hats off to everyone involved.

We just returned from a trip to the Antarctic Peninsula that was organized through Adventure Life. Adventure Life did a terrific job helping us organize the trip as much as 1.5 years in advance of the departure date. They were personable and very helpful throughout the process.

The trip was amazing and I would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking a trip of a lifetime offering unique scenery and wildlife.

Frannie and Mary with Adventure Life were terrific to work with.

Loved our trip to Costa Rica organized by Adventure Life! The activities and accommodations were all first rate. Appreciated that all the accommodations were environmentally responsible, and catered to more European than American travelers.

I'm the type of person who needs to know when, why and how for every arrangement and with so many moving parts and individuals involved to make this 2 week trip happen, I was a bit skeptical that it would all come together as smoothly as it did. And by smooth I mean every single connection, transfer, accommodation and plan was executed flawlessly. Adventure Life is the way to go. Every detail was taken care of and could not have been planned better!
