Here is a little snippet from the flyer that is now available online:

Our signature inclusive yacht cruising style is built on flexibility, which allows the 36-guest Safari Explorer to explore the Hawaiian Islands without having to be at a specific port at a specific time. Guests see and experience the islands from a different perspective than at a highend resort. Explore remote coves, inlets, bays and shoreline by foot, kayak, sailboat and motor launch. The 36-guest Safari Explorer provides your base for these active adventures. She is equipped with all the gear and expertise for kayaking, snorkeling, and more.

During each itinerary, immerse yourself in this tropical wonderland to view marine species and endangered animals that are found nowhere else on Earth. The warm, shallow waters provide one of the world’s most important habitats for humpback whales — two thirds of the North Pacific population migrate to Hawaii each winter for breeding, calving and nursing. The flexible itinerary focuses on dipping into hideaway coves and inlets, mostly staying on the leeward side of the eastern-most Hawaiian Islands chain (sheltered from the northerly winds and waves).

Along the way, experience traditional Hawaiian culture with opportunities to meet the locals on their land and in their homes. Each evening, the yacht sets anchor in a different sheltered harbor or inlet. Our itineraries and small guest contingent has little impact on the islands, and our all-American crew includes Hawaii residents, especially Captains and Expedition Leaders/ Naturalists who have personal knowledge of the islands.

Each of the 11 day/10 night and 8 day/7 night itineraries sail one-way between Maalaea, Maui and Kona, Big Island with intermediate visits to Molokai and Lanai.

Our Inaugural Hawaiian Island Season begins on October 26, 2011 and runs through May 11, 2012.

These cruise “yachts” are pretty styling!

They are much smaller then your typical cruise ship, however they do have three decks and have almost all the same type of goodies as the bigger vessels.

American Safari Cruises becomes the first cruise line to offer unstructured inter-island yacht cruising in Hawaii, where the next “port” may not be a port at all. Instead, it may be a passage rich with wildlife, a secluded sandy beach or a quiet cove where guests enjoy extended time to explore their surroundings on the shore or in the water.
