Un-Cruise Adventures Offers New Hawaii Itinerary

Safari Explorer
Un-Cruise Adventures’ 36-guest yacht Safari Explorer will operate a new one-way Hawaii itinerary from November to April. The new itinerary sails between Molokai — a new destination — and Hawaii, the Big Island and also explores Lanai and Maui.

The weeklong Luxury Adventure cruises include activities and tours on the islands. The voyage includes cultural activities on Molokai with the vessel spending an evening at dock to allow for a full day of activities. “Molokai 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.”

Among the activities on Molokai is a visit to the Halawa Valley for a hike to a waterfall, learning the traditions of an ancient taro patch and a visit to a nearby beach. In the evening, an authentic feast at the Molokai Museum and Cultural Center features fresh fish, poi, seaweed, Molokai sweet potatoes and other staples of the Hawaiian diet. Local musicians join in the celebration along with a kumu hula dancer.

Travelers booked by Aug. 2 for travel November through April receive a $700 per couple travel credit. Rates for the weeklong Hawaii cruise start at $3,595 per person, double occupancy, and include premium spirits, fine wines and microbrews, meals featuring Hawaiian flavors, massage, yoga, small-group guided tours, from-yacht activities and equipment, whale and dolphin encounters, transfers, lei greeting, and port charges and taxes.
