We are a Business to Business organisation. Please note we do not work direct with the public; we deal only with cruise line owners and charterers.


As the UK’s market leader in managing shore-side arrangements for Expedition Cruise Lines we have a skilled team of staff that focus purely on Expedition planning.

The British Isles consists of over 6000 islands at high tide and 4100 at low tide! Of these, 194 are permanently inhabited. The rest are….wild!

A haven for the wildlife enthusiasts, and often brimming with historical interest and cultural diversity, these remote islands make for unique and extremely popular Expedition visits.

Our Role

Our long established role involves planning and coordinating those visits with the local authorities and communities, gaining permission for your visit and facilitating arrangements on shore as necessary.

One of the most important aspects of this role is the ability to be adaptable; after all, we recognise that a good Expedition Leader “Reserves the right to improve the programme”! Weather plays a significant role and we are frequently involved in re-shaping an entire voyage at short notice in order to maximise opportunity and improve the programme in the face of unforeseen circumstances.

Additionally we have access to expert lecturers and field guides that will bring ancient sites to life or help seek out elusive wildlife! Many will be happy to sail onboard during the voyage and offer onboard lectures to your guests.

Excursions Ltd has experience of handling ships of every size in over 100 ports around the UK and is a member of:

We are a member of Travelife and we have started the process to work step by step towards complying with international sustainability standards.
