  Comforts & Exclusivity: Living the Good Life

Take a breather. Have a fantastic, easy-going day—stroll along a beach or take a 2-hour trek at modest elevation or to a "great to be alive" waterfall. Back on board, go for a shore-hugging spin in the kayak or skiff, then into the hot tub for a double bubbly of muscle warming and complimentary champagne. Nothing too extreme and surely something you'll feel good about. Inside and out.

Our small guest numbers keep your experience exclusive and personal. We engage local experts to ensure you have an opportunity to learn as much about what you are seeing and experiencing as you want. Experiences on or off the boat are designed to provide adventures few travelers ever experience.

Personal Comforts

Each of our upscale yachts is designed with your comfort in mind and appointed with thoughtful touches that invite you to relax and unwind. Your crew sees to the smallest details, each one eager to make your adventure extra special.

Adventure Equipment

Their exclusive Luxury Adventures provide a spectrum of activities—all designed to make your time engaging, active, and as varied as you like. Whether you prefer kayaking, hiking and stand-up paddle boarding or snorkeling in a fish sanctuary, soaking in the hot tub and tasting regional wines, your greatest challenge will be choosing how to spend your time. Aside from that, all you really have to do is enjoy the destination.

Kayaks

Kayaking allows you to view both wildlife and natural wonders in a safe, comfortable, unforgettable way. Feel the enormity of nature from the face of a glacier. Explore the waters for an unparalleled view of surfacing whales. Or just drift and revel in the quiet solitude. No other cruise line can present you with opportunities like these. The kayak equipment we use is designed to make kayaking accessible to everyone-including the true beginner or 80 years old. The easy access and stability of our kayaks also makes them suitable for any fitness level. Swim steps on the Safari Quest and Safari Explorer make maneuvering into a kayak easy, and the EZ Dock launch system on the Safari Endeavour has been specially designed to allow for the comfortable and quick deployment of multiple kayaks at a time.

Paddle boards

Kids, young adults, and older folk alike brave the stand-up paddle boards while on an Un-Cruise Adventure. The advanced design paddle boards our yachts carry make even the most trepidatious adventurer give it a try-even if it's just on their knees.

Trekking Poles

For your convenience, we have a limited supply of ultra-light, compact, yet strong trekking poles that offer easy pole length adjustment and comfortable grips for guest use.

Depending, on your location, adventure activities offered may include:
