Aqua Expeditions, operator of luxury cruises on the Peruvian Amazon and Mekong rivers, has received a $28 million capital investment to increase its fleet and add new destinations over the next two years.

Francesco Galli Zugaro said the company will use the investment by private equity firm Bison Capital to add coastal cruising in "soft adventure destinations," but he did not specify where.

The company said more details will be released later this month.

Aqua operates small boats that offer safari-like excursions focused on jungles, wildlife and local cultures.
