Aurora Expeditions’ new ship, Greg Mortimer, promises a refined cruising experience. TTG joined agents on a training day in Scotland to find out more about the concept.
Spray stings my cheeks as the speedboat slams down on the grey waters of the Atlantic Ocean, my new travel agent buddies huddling together like Despicable Me’s Minions in their blue and yellow drysuits. “Look, there’s a grey seal,” shouts our skipper. “Hopefully we’ll see a few dolphins too!”
I’m off the coast of Oban in Scotland with Aurora Expeditions, sampling some of its excursion options. Despite the torrential rain and Flipper not making an appearance, this white-knuckle ride has me sold on the expedition cruising concept.
