Freighters at night

A unique cruising adventure.

Freighter ships are the perfect way to enjoy a journey by sea at a more relaxed pace than the big cruise liners. You call into ports that others never see, you experience life on-board a cargo ship, mixing with the Captain and Officers every day. You can go onto the bridge to see your daily progress across the oceans of the world and enjoy being at sea without the distractions of conventional cruise ships and certainly not having to dress up for dinner! 



Freighter Expeditions specialises in unique and diverse sea voyages that are once in a lifetime travel experiences. The joys of learning, time at sea and the casual yet simple offerings provide for self sufficiency whilst leaving you open minded in every sense of the word. To experience the world like few other travellers ever do you'll need to book early. These journeys truely are limited editions.
