Who We Are
Travel Dynamics International is one of the leading operators of high-caliber educational programs aboard small cruise ships. Offering customized voyages guided by distinguished scholars and experts, Travel Dynamics International caters to the traveler with a keen intellectual interest in history, culture, and nature.
Founded on the belief that traveling and learning about the world and its many cultures enriches individuals and society as a whole, Travel Dynamics International excels at voyages to places that offer a historic and cultural environment.
Cruising with a Purpose
This idea has been the guiding spirit of every voyage we have ever charted since we first founded Travel Dynamics International more than 35 years ago. We have followed the journeys of Odysseus, St. Paul, Charles Darwin, and Jason and the Argonauts. We have visited the fabled ancient Greek cities of Asia Minor, the outposts of the Venetian Empire in the Eastern Mediterranean, and the most magnificent achievements of the Pharaohs along the Nile. We have dropped anchor off pristine islands in the Indian Ocean, followed the Amazon into the emerald heart of the rain forest, and beached our landing craft on the ice-bound coast of Antarctica.
But no matter where we have sailed, our goal has remained the same: to introduce you to extraordinary places that will lift your heart, fire your imagination, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Small-Ship Cruising in Perfect Comfort
Small ships are the foundation of the Travel Dynamics International philosophy of travel. To us, every voyage is a journey of exploration, and as any explorer will tell you, that requires time and flexibility. A small ship provides us with both. While the mega-liners are locked into a set schedule, our ships enjoy the luxury of spontaneity. If a beautiful little cove comes into view, the captain may drop anchor so you could swim or snorkel from the marina at the stern of the yacht. If the chefs spot a secluded beach, they may be inspired to prepare a picnic lunch to be served on shore.
This leisurely approach to travel extends to our destinations as well. At every site we visit, you'll have plenty of time to listen to the presentations by our expert onboard lecturers and guides and then strike out for some in-depth investigation of your own.
Furthermore, we tend to stay in port late. This gives you an opportunity to take a walk around the town after dinner. Or to linger over coffee in a cafe on the town square. At every place we sail, we give you the freedom to exercise your options, and the leisure to savor each destination at your own pace.
