Authentic experiences in the heart of the majestic Mekong Delta


Since Aqua Mekong resumed sailing in late 2022, our cabins have been filling out. Given the increased demand, we are pleased to announce that we are extending our Aqua Mekong sailing season to include April 2023! 

Exploring the captivating countries of Cambodia and Vietnam, Aqua Mekong journeys through the caramel waters of its namesake river. The Mekong boasts over 2,000 years of history, dating back from colonial rule to the Khmer empire. 

Discovering this remarkable region is best done aboard Aqua Mekong. From world-class dining to an exclusive 1:1 crew-to-guest ratio, the vessel offers an unmatched experience in the Mekong Delta. There are elegant social spaces — including an outdoor cinema, plunge pool, and shaded lounge — as well as award-winning design suites with floor-to-ceiling windows. Look no further for the ultimate luxury expedition.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit floating villages, bike-ride through uncharted island trails, and gather insights into the rich, local heritage. Our expert guides will ensure that your guests have an authentic Mekong experience featuring small-group explorations on land and in water, aboard this region’s only fleet of private skiffs. 

With itineraries extending to Siem Reap, your guests will also be able to plan a journey onwards to the lost city of Angkor Wat. Spread over 400 acres, this UNESCO World Heritage site dates back to the 12th century. It is the largest religious monument in the world, featuring architecture that tells a story of an ancient kingdom and its traditions.
