Here at Frontiers, we just love Un-Cruise Adventures; the moment you step aboard the yachts, you'll know you have found something special. Your Captain personally welcomes you and the crew greets you with hors d'oeuvres and champagne as your yacht adventure begins. You have become a pampered guest, one of the very few, who will leave the crowds behind to cruise at fingertip closeness through some of the most magnificent destinations in western North America and the Hawaiian Islands. Enjoy all the pleasures of an all-inclusive yachting experience without doing any of the work. You will nose so close to pristine waterfalls that you feel the invigorating spray. Every itinerary is flexible enough that your Captain can change course when word of whale sightings comes over the radio, or slow the engines and linger in a tidal inlet if bears are out foraging on the beach. Maybe all the guests agree they want to spend extra time kayaking, hiking, or beachcombing. It's your trip.
Yacht cruising is perfect for active adventurers who desire to escape to unknown harbors without sacrificing comfort. Throughout your voyage, you're accompanied by a knowledgeable Expedition Leader who offers timely narratives about the local history and wildlife, introduces you to local indigenous peoples, and keeps a lookout for wildlife. Children and families are welcome aboard for private charters or during certain cruise weeks set aside for a special ‘Kids in Nature’ program, designed to introduce small adventurers to nature’s wonders. Many highlights of a journey with American Safari Cruises fall "below the radar" of a typical cruise experience because larger vessels just can’t reach the coves, lagoons and waterways accessible to a yacht. The world is certainly vast, but it's best experienced in small doses — up-close and yacht personal! The 36-guest Safari Explorer, 22-guest Safari Quest and 12-guest Safari Spirit cruise during daylight hours only, maximizing your opportunities to truly experience nature. Evenings can be spent socializing in the comfortable lounge or out on deck, in the Jacuzzi and under the stars.
Discover the inner reaches of Alaska's Inside Passage, the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico's Sea of Cortés, Columbia/Snake Rivers and Pacific Northwest/British Columbia. Frontiers travel expert Cindy Smith is well versed in the destinations and the yachts and looks forward to helping you plan the perfect un-cruise!
