Un-Cruise Adventures is offering four weeklong yacht cruises in the Hawaiian Islands or Mexico’s Sea of Cortés this winter. Holiday departures are scheduled for Dec. 21 and 28, 2013 aboard the 64-guest Safari Voyager in Baja, Mexico and the 36-guest Safari Explorer in Hawaii.
Travelers booked on a 2013 holiday cruise by Aug. 30 receive a per couple travel credit of $800 in Hawaii and $500 in Mexico.
The 36-guest yacht Safari Explorer explores the Hawaiian Islands on a new itinerary sailing one-way between Moloka’i and Hawai’i, the Big Island or reverse. Weeklong Luxury Adventure cruises in Hawaii include activities and tours while exploring four islands—Moloka’i, Lana’i, Maui and Hawai’i, the Big Island. Highlights of the Hawaiian Seascapes cruise include a night snorkel with Giant Pacific Manta rays, snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay where Captain Cook was slain in 1779, a visit to the sacred Halawa Valley on Moloka’i and searching out marine life in the Humpback National Marine Sanctuary.
New to the Un-Cruise Adventures fleet, the 64-guest Safari Voyager sails roundtrip from San José del Cabo in Baja, Mexico on two holiday cruises. The weeklong Cousteau’s Aquarium of the World itinerary visits two ports—Loreto and La Paz—along with Isla Cerralvo, the Cousteau Island. On this route, guests have a good chance at seeing—and even snorkeling alongside—whale sharks and will visit Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park. Remote island hiking, a bonfire ashore, a mule ride into the arroyo with a ranchero and snorkeling with sea lions are all included.
Rates for the inclusive weeklong holiday cruises start at $4,895 in Hawaii and $2,995 in Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, per person, double occupancy. Inclusion of premium spirits, fine wines and microbrews, superb hand-crafted meals featuring local flavors, massage, yoga, guided tours geared toward small groups, from-yacht activities and equipment, whale and dolphin encounters, transfers and port charges and taxes are all wrapped into the cruise fare.
The yachts carry a full complement of water sports equipment for guest use and a swim step provides a convenient and safe launch pad for kayaks and paddle boards, or jumping in for a swim. Guests can be as active as they like and activities include hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, sailing and skiff excursions. Expert naturalists provide interpretation on guided excursions ashore and at sea.
An experienced and attentive crew provides a guest-crew ratio of almost 2 to 1. Charters and group bookings are available.
