Founded in 1982 by Barney Ebsworth, Clipper Cruise ships are known
for their small size and great maneuverability. Since the ships
take on a small number of passengers per cruise, the ambience is
usually relaxed and informal. The team of 'enlighteners'- naturalists,
historians and other experts who are available aboard offer informal
lectures and lead expeditions thus adding to the experience of exploring
a beautiful region.
