The Un-Cruise Christmas Adventure To Hawaii And Mexico

Leave the Christmas planning behind this year and enjoy a week-long "Un-Cruise Adventure" aboard an American Safari Cruises luxury yacht in a sunny destination. The 86-guest Safari Endeavour offers cruises departing December 22 and 29 in the Sea of Cortés and the 36-guest Safari Explorer sails a 7-day voyage in the Hawaiian Islands departing December 22.

Families, couples or singles can all enjoy the relaxation and freedom of vacationing during the festive period - often a stressful and busy time at home. The festivities of the holidays are tastefully incorporated into the yachts’ décor, activities and meals. As an added incentive, guests who book by September 30 receive a $500 travel credit per couple for the Hawaiia cruise or $300 per couple for the Sea of Cortés.

The 86-guest Endeavour explores the wildlife rich Sea of Cortés on week-long Baja’s Bounty expeditions round-trip deom La Paz, Baja, Mexico. Transfers are included from either Los Cabos or La Paz airports. Highlights include snorkelling with sea lions, water sports activities, a visit to the mission town of Loreto and viewing dolphins and whales.

The 36-guest Explorer embarks on its second season of Hawaiian Islands cruises sailing seven-night inclusive Hawaiian Seascapes adventures between Hawaii, the Big Island and Lana’i with two days of activities on Moloka’i. Flexible yacht itineraries focus on the leeward side of the eastern-most Hawaiian Islands.

On both voyages, guests can be as active as they like, with activities including hiking, kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkelling and skiff excursions. Expert guides provide interpretation on excursions ashore and at sea. Unstructured itineraries allow time for viewing wildlife such as whales and dolphins.

Cruise fares start at $5,695 in Hawaii and $3,695 in the Sea of Cortés, based on double  occupancy. The cruises include all from-the-yacht activities and equipment; transfers; all meals; fine wine, premium spirits and microbrews; and all port charges, taxes and fees. An all-American crew has a guest-crew ratio of about 2 to 1. Yachts can be booked as a private charter or by individual stateroom.
