The Blount difference is simple with small ships that take guests to unique ports and onto waters less traveled in a personal, uncrowded way. Blount Small Ships specialize in destination-oriented travel through the scenic waterways of North America. With small ships holding no more than 84 passengers, Blount offers an informal atmosphere and personalized service similar to cruising on your own private yacht.
In 1966, Luther Blount launched the American Canadian Caribbean Line , which was later renamed to Blount Small Ship Adventures. Today, the Blunt family still owns and operates the business where you’ll still find the legacy of Luther at work. A legacy built on taking travelers a little further, going where others cannot, helping them see a little more, and experiencing what getting away really means.
This Fall Foliage installment takes you through the Hudson River, Erie Canal and through the Thousand Islands along the St. Lawrence Seaway. The seaway is a system of locks, canals, and channels dotted with waterfront communities, scenic islands, and wildlife habitats. This two-nation cruise includes it all from the glitz of the Manhattan skyline to the cobblestone streets and vintage charm of Quebec.
Blount Small Ships have been built with the purpose of bringing travelers to places that larger ships simply cannot go: walk from ship to shore on the Blount Bow Ramp, dock with the yachts thanks to the shallowness of his ships' draft, and cruise under the lowest bridges. Every part of a Blunt small ship was designed to make sure you have the best, inhibited, small ship adventure so that you can go where the big ships cannot.
