Explore the Hawaiian Islands onboard a Small Luxury Yacht

December 12, 2012 · Print This Article

During the months of November and May there is a fabulous small ship that sails between the islands on a weekly voyage - their tagline is “luxury in the pursuit of adventure“.  The Safari Explorer is a 36 passenger yacht, based in Seattle WA and owned by Innersea Discoveries & American Safari Cruises. Onboard guests will enjoy a weekly cruise around the islands, the trip is affectionately named the Hawaiian Seascapes.  This luxury adventure will focus on the abundant wildlife of the Hawaiian waters.

Safari Explorer itinerary:

Day 1 - Lana’I - Embarkation - Today you will be met with a warm aloha where the Captain and crew greet you with champagne as you board your awaiting yacht, the Safari Explorer.   Watch for marine life as you enjoy your first sunset prior to dropping anchor for the evening.

Day 2 - Lana’I - Gear up for a day of exploration and fun!  Your activities will include snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, skiffing; and a stroll along Shipwreck Beach to the ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs. The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary-located between Lana’i, Moloka’i, and Maui-provides front-row seats as you cruise through these productive marine breeding grounds.

Day 3 - Olowalu/West Maui - Today you will cruise 9 miles to the island of Maui. Today you will explore amazing coral gardens teaming with sea life.  Later you’ll enjoy a sail aboard an authentic hand carved outrigger canoe.

Day 4 - Moloka’I - Explore the charming paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town of Kaunakakai.  Visit a plumeria farm and relax at one of the longest beaches in Hawaii.  Stop by a macadamia nut farm and stop for coffee at a plantation.

Day 5 - Moloka’i - Halawa Valley - Hands-on activities await you in the picture book Halawa Valley. “Talk story” with locals and experience their land and traditions as few visitors ever do.

Day 6 - Kailua Kona, Hawaii - Your adventure today begins aboard a skiff to Kealakekua Bay, where Captain Cook was slain in 1779. A guided walking tour unveils this historic town.  Tonight you’ll anchor at an offshore location for a night of snorkeling with Giant Pacific Manta rays!

Day 7 - Honomalino Bay/Opihihali - Fringed by coconut palms, the bay reveals a diversity of colorful corals, sponges and tropical fish.

Day 8 - Hawaii, the Big Island - Disembark - As the Safari Explorer docks at Kawaihae Harbor, you’ll be transferred to the Kona Airport or to your extended Un-Cruise hotel stay.

We are able to extend your fabulous vacation at one of the premier hotels in Hawaii.  I suggest the Four Seasons Hualalai for a few more days of relaxation.
