Specialist Expeditions Worldwide


Amelia Dalton Travel Ltd.



amelia-mockup-4_s1I specialise in personalising travel, in getting to know my clients and exactly what they want from every trip they take. My expertise is then to tailor their arrangements to their individual interests and desires.

EXPERIENCE: for 10 years I owned a small ship running cruises to the remote island chains of Scotland’s stunning West Coast.  They were challenging conditions.  In that time, I worked closely with The National Trust for Scotland, and gained my commercial qualifications as a Captain.  This led to my establishing the entire cruise programme, from Arctic Norway to Sri Lanka for a small international cruise ship. It was owned by Hebridean Island Cruises, one of Britain’s most stylish companies and a favourite of HM the Queen. Subsequently, I worked as Cruise Director for Swan Hellenic Noble Caledonia and as a Tour Manager for Abercrombie & Kent caring for their small groups of demanding American clients. We travelled in style through Europe to Russia, Scandinavia, Italy and the Black Sea, visiting sites both famous and unknown.

Now I work as an adviser for individual clients on river and ocean cruises and as a consultant for  The Ultimate Travel Co., Cazenove+loyd and The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust using my marine qualifications for chartering small ships to create one-off specialized voyages exploring exotic waters, be it be in the Caribbean, Seychelles, Burma or amongst the Indonesian islands of the Coral Triangle.

In 2004 I established AMELIA DALTON TRAVEL. I was able to use the experience gained over 15 years to understand and satisfy people’s demands for adventurous travel without sacrificing either comfort or style. My clients are able to see the real side of their holiday destinations and to learn about them through knowledgeable guest speakers and guides and through links with local charities.

For you, whether you wish to dine in a palazzo, see a polar bear or wander along a pristine coral beach,  I offer you my extensive knowledge of small ships and personal attention. In addition to a wealth of well-researched back-ground knowledge, I have the advantage of being able draw on the experience of a vast collection of personal contacts.

Besides arranging individual travel, I design and create a unique collection of small group tours, which I accompany myself to ensure not just that all goes smoothly but that they are laced with a strong sense of fun

Whatever you want from your travels, PLEASE Just ask! 

I enjoy a challenge.
