Niche cruise specialists Poseidon Expeditions has appointed GAC as its UK national agent.
GAC will look after port calls for the 114 pax‘Sea Spirit’ from the Scilly Isles in the south to the coast of Scotland in the north.
Poseidon Expeditions is the latest cruise company to select GAC UK as its agent, joining other operators such as Ponant, Fred Olsen and Grand Circle Cruise Line.
The ‘Sea Spirit’ will take GAC UK to 25 ports on the Isles of May and Noss, Bass Rock, Grutness, Moussa, Llandudno, St Kilda and more, to arrange berths, timings, attractions and itineraries.
Some of the calls will be made to uninhabited islands, where careful enquiries and arrangements have been made to establish ownership and permission to land the guests.
Angelica Vorea, Poseidon Expeditions CEO, said:“In 2019, we expanded the geographic scope of our cruise destinations with the inclusion of the British Isles. The ‘Sea Spirit ‘ will be visiting coastal areas and smaller islands, inaccessible to larger vessels, keeping with our mission of providing our guests with a destination-focused experience, combining a high standard of onboard comfort and service with the spirit of adventure. We look forward to this new co-operation with GAC, which will provide our guests with an exceptional experience in the UK.”
