Offshore Outpost Expeditions (OOE) has announced a new type of expedition cruise experience for adventure travelers during the 2018 cruise season. Dubbed “adventure cruising” by OOE, guests on these journeys will have the opportunity to invent their own excursions in the Sea of Cortez on OOE’s 160-foot Pacific Provider.
Having launched its inaugural cruise on November 26, 2017, the ship departs from Cabo San Lucas or La Paz every Sunday through early April, and offers guests the opportunity to go “beyond the destination” with personalized and flexible travel experiences.
The personalized “adventure cruising” experience allows guests to choose the day’s adventures, with activities such as swimming with whale sharks, catching fish and preparing it with a private chef, or spending the day on a hidden beach. OOE will provide the gear for fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking and more.
The Pacific Provider is a specially designed expedition ship that includes cabins, dining areas and lounges and expansive deck space for viewing. The ship accommodates a maximum of twelve guests and eight crew per cruise. The ship has a size and maneuverability that allows access to areas not accessible by larger cruise and expedition ships.
OOE aims to appeal to any group of adventurous travelers, from couples and multi-generational families to groups of friends and team retreats, offering flexible itineraries and accommodations. The company expects to announce a second cruise destination later this year.
