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 Lana’i Culture and Heritage Center, 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. Land opportunities include hiking in lush forest, up volcanos and touring the Molokai Museum. 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.

Day 2
Molokai

A warm Aloha spirit gives the 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. Hear legends and lore, then take in 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 Molokai Museum, discover the history of this ancient homeland while enjoying an evening pa’ina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian jam session.

Kona Coast

Fringed by coconut palms, Kealakekua (more commonly known as Captain Cook Bay, the fateful location of his unlucky demise) offers a morning filled with corals, sponges and tropical fishes all set to the tune of the rich history of the Hawaiian Dynasty of Kings.

Day 7
Puu Waawaa State Wildlife Sanctuary

You’re off to Puu Waawaa State Wildlife Sanctuary where you and a local naturalist climb the trails above the Kona coast. How will you adventure? Head 6,000 feet up Hualalai Volcano on a long hike up the cool and misty slopes, complete with natural history interpretation. Hike through dryland native forest and past lava tubes, and peer into a pit crater from its edge (if you’re up for it, you can even go inside a lava tube). A shorter hike option boasts views of craters, fissures and lava tubes.

More relaxed guests visit with a ranger (and become a Hawaii Junior Ranger if desired), hike the trail to petroglyphs, or check out the Kaloko fishpond and remnants of the Aiopio fish trap. Bird watch or relax on the white coral sand beach—possibly spot a green sea turtle.

For this final afternoon, relax on board or go for one last dip. This evening celebrate with the captain’s dinner and photographic recap of the week’s adventure.
