Hawaiian Seascapes Cruise

Discover Hawaii in a new way via this 8-day small yacht cruise in America’s very own paradise, the Hawaiian Islands. This unique 4-island Hawaiian Seascapes itinerary enables authentic experiences of Hawaii’s rich traditions and spectacular natural wonders. 

From the 36-guest Safari Explorer, watch for humpback whales off Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii. Explore the naturally pristine areas that can only be accessed by sea. Experience traditional Hawaiian history and culture at the Molokai Museum, including a musical jam session, while exploring the islands with an intimate group of like-minded travelers. 

This active Hawaii cruise itinerary includes time for snorkeling among coral gardens and a sea turtle habitat, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and skiff tours. There’s even an opportunity to snorkel at night with Giant Pacific Manta rays. Land opportunities include hiking in lush forest up volcanos. If you are seeking a unique Hawaii snorkel cruise, this is it! Each evening, slip into a different sheltered harbor or inlet for exploration and enjoy a splendid dinner on board. As the sun sets, a fragrant breeze emerges and the coconut palms sway on the nearby shore…

With tens of millions visiting the Hawaiian Islands each year, being 1 of 36 on this small ship cruise offers a unique, exclusive experience. Dare to be different and explore Hawaii’s untouched, remote lands by small ship cruise.
