Un-Cruise Offers New Hawaii Itinerary

This winter, Un-Cruise Adventures’ 36-guest yacht Safari Explorer explores the Hawaiian islands on a new itinerary sailing one-way between Moloka’i and Hawaii, the Big Island or reverse. Week-long 'Luxury Adventure' cruises in Hawaii include activities and tours while exploring four islands - Moloka’i, Lana’i, Maui and the Big Island.

New this season, Moloka’i - a quieter, less-visited island - takes centre stage as the beginning or ending point for the line’s cruises. Exclusive cultural activities are included for guests on the island, with the vessel spending an evening at dock to allow for a full day of activities and cultural immersion.

“Moloka’i is like stepping back in time to the Hawaii of yesteryear,” said Dan Blanchard, CEO and principal for Un-Cruise Adventures. “It’s incredibly scenic and values its culture and heritage, which we’re proud to be able to share with our guests.”

Anakala Pilipo invites guests to Moloka’i’s historic and scenic Halawa Valley for a hike to a secluded waterfall or a relaxing day on his land “talking story,” learning the traditions of his family’s ancient taro patch and a visit to a nearby beach. In the evening, an authentic Pa’ina (feast) at the Moloka’i Museum and Cultural Center features local cuisine, including fresh fish, poi, seaweed, sweet potatoes and other staples of the Hawaiian diet. Local musicians join in the celebration along with a kumu hula dancer.

As a bonus with this beautiful cruise option, all bookings made by August 2 for travel for November to April will receive a $700 per couple travel credit. Rates for the Hawaii cruise start at $3,595 per person, double occupancy, inclusive of premium spirits, fine wines and microbrews, all meals featuring local Hawaiian flavours, massage, yoga, guided tours geared toward small groups, from-yacht activities and equipment, whale and dolphin encounters, transfers, lei greeting, and port charges and taxes.
