Cruise

Day
01
Molokaʻi – Embarkation
Welcome to Hawaii! You’ll be transferred to our hospitality area on Molokaʻi. Later, the Captain and crew greet you with smiles and champagne as you board the awaiting Safari Explorer. This evening, settle in and enjoy dinner aboard the yacht, before a presentation about your week ahead.
Day
02
Molokaʻi
A warm Aloha spirit gives you a sense of Hawaii long ago. No stop lights, no high-rises, just a welcome slower pace. “Talk story” with locals and experience their land and traditions as few visitors ever do. You’ll hear legends and lore, then take in a cultural lessons in taro patches and poi making, or hike to a towering waterfall in Halawa’s cathedral valley—one of the island’s most historic places. At the Molokaʻi Museum, discover the history of this ancient homeland as you enjoy an evening paʻina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian jam session.
Day
03
Lanaʻi
Gear up for a day of play on the “Private Island.” Thousand foot sea cliffs line the shore and ancient volcanic plugs sit both above and below the water surface as host to a wide diversity of marine life. Snorkel, paddle board, kayak, and explore by skiff. Enjoy a short hike to the island’s spatter and cinder cone. Learn about the islands plantation days with a visit to the quaint Lanaʻi Culture and Heritage Center.
Day
04
Olowalu / West Maui
In ancient times, Olowalu was considered a place of refuge. Today, it delivers a treat of snorkeling among coral gardens teeming with underwater life and a known sea turtle habitat. The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary—located between Lanaʻi, Molokaʻi, and Maui—provides front-row seats as you cruise through these productive marine breeding grounds searching for dolphins, whales, and other marine life.
Day
05
Captain’s Choice Exploration
Leave it to your Captain and crew to seek out and unveil the best opportunities the islands hold in store today. Dramatic volcanic backdrops, marine life sightings, and chances for snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding are all possible!
Day
06
Honomalino Bay
Fringed by coconut palms, Honomalino Bay offers a morning of snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking. The bay reveals a diversity of colorful corals, sponges, and tropical fishes. Lava tubes, kayaking, and skiff tours fill out your day of adventure—in an area known to be favored by marine mammals. This evening you’ll anchor at an offshore location for a thrilling night snorkel with Giant Pacific Manta rays.
Day
07
Kailua-Kona
Skiff to Kealakekua Bay, where Captain Cook was slain in 1779, for some of the island’s best snorkeling. At Kailua-Kona, stroll through town at your own pace, and uncover the charm of this historic town. This evening, celebrate with the Captain’s Dinner and photographic recap of your adventure.

Ports & Places

Hālawa Valley, Moloka'i, Hawaii

Located on the east side of Moloka’i, the Hālawa Valley is home to breathtaking vistas and the 250-foot Mooula Falls.  It is believed that ancient Polynesians settled here as early as 650 AD, making the Hālawa Valley one of the island’s most historic areas. > Read More

Hawaiʻi, the Big Island

Living up to its name, the Big Island is unmatched in its diversity of natural wonders. Its lush rainforests, volcanic deserts, and snowcapped mountains include all but two of the world’s climate zones. Built from five separate volcanoes erupting sequentially, one overlapping the other, this southern-most and eastern-most island in the Hawaiian chain is also the youngest. > Read More

Kailua-Kona, Hawaiʻi

Rising up from Kailua Bay along the side of Hualālai volcano, Kailua-Kona is green with tall palms, 'Ōhi'a Lehua trees with their distinct red flowers, many-colored hibiscus, and deliciously scented plumeria. The capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii at the time of King Kamehameha I, Kailua-Kona, it is still a place of great importance today.> Read More

Lahaina, Maui

Located on the west side of Maui and 45 minutes from the Kahului Airport, this former capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom and quaint 19th-century whaling village has transformed itself into a Maui hot-spot of art galleries, unique shops, and restaurants.

> Read More

Lana'i, Hawaii

The sixth largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago and the smallest that is publically accessible, most of Lāna’i’s 3,100 residents live in Lāna'i City. With no shopping malls, public transportation or traffic lights, the island is remarkably reminiscent of old Hawaii and has retained much of its native culture.> Read More

Maui, Hawaii

Hawaiian legend tells the story of a great hero, Maui, who caught the ocean floor with his fish hook. Convincing his brothers to paddle strongly to help him catch a “big fish,” their efforts pulled up an island instead of an ahi or mahi mahi. Whether pulled from the ocean by a mythological hero, or through the powerful forces of volcanic creation, the island of Maui is the second largest in the chain and one of the youngest at roughly 1.3 million years old. > Read More

Moloka'i, Hawaii

Formed from two shield volcanoes and scattered northward across the Pacific Ocean about 1.5 million years ago, a tsunami in the mid-twentieth century wiped out fields of lo'i (taro) leaving behind the highest sea cliffs in the world. On three sides, steep pali (cliff walls) create the deep valley of the island and intermittently hide and reveal slender waterfalls.> Read More

Olowalu, Maui

Located on the west side of the island of Maui, Olowalu has been considered a place of refuge, or pu'uhonua, since ancient times. If you committed a kapu—broke a sacred law—your only chance of survival would be to escape to the sanctuary of a pu’uhonua. Entering this area, it’s impossible not to feel the powerful aura of those ancient protections. > Read More
