This high-end SUV of a yacht is nimble, strong, and loving. The Safari Explorer has what mariners call “feet” that take her into wild areas big ships can’t visit. Her performance-built rugged construction means access to faraway regions. But it’s what’s on the inside that makes this vessel the prize of the fleet. And with only 36 guests on board, the feel is decidedly exclusive.
Lovingly called “the Bulldog,” she’s poised, her interior is a pearl, and the general mood is down-to-earth. In the winter, she bops around the islands of Hawaii soaking up the laid-back aloha spirit—weaving through the islands, ready for bow-riding dolphins. In the summer, she follows the Humpbacks north to Alaska, navigating the inside passage and taking in The Great Land. A protective spirit is infused in every part of the ship, and within the crew. She’s made for adventures after all and with them comes inevitable fun and folly.
Three decks accessible to guests are designed for your comfort and sense of adventure. The Bridge Deck offers the rooftop sun lounge, exercise equipment, hot tub (open during Alaska cruises only), open bridge, and the Commodore Suites. The cabin deck houses guests in the Master and Commander categories, as well as the Jr Commodore and one Admiral cabin. The main deck holds the larger Admiral suites as well as the luxurious common areas.
The Dining Room features open seating meals served at table at set times. Unlimited soda, juices and lemonade as well as alcoholic beverages are included in the price of the cruise. Vegetarian options are always available, and dietary restrictions are happily accommodated if noted in advance. The Main deck also houses the Salon, Bar, and Wine Bar.
Onboard Features: kayaks, paddleboards, inflatable skiffs, hiking poles, snorkel gear/wetsuits; one on-deck hot tub (open Alaska cruises only); fitness equipment and yoga mats; rubber boots from women's size 5 to men's size 12, medium width; reusable water bottles; DVD and book library and full-beam swim step for loading and off loading.
