Day 1

Moloka'i —Embarkation

Welcome to Hawaii! Transfer to the hospitality area on Moloka’i. Later, the Captain and crew greet you with smiles and champagne as you board the awaiting Safari Explorer. This evening, settle in and enjoy dinner aboard the ship, before a presentation about your week ahead.

Day 2

Moloka'i

A warm Aloha spirit gives you a 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. You’ll hear legends and lore, then take in a 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 Moloka’i Museum, discover the history of this ancient homeland as you enjoy an evening pa’ina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian jam session.

Day 3

Lana'i

Gear up for a day of play on the “Private Island.” Thousand foot sea cliffs line the shore and ancient volcanic plugs sit both above and below the water surface as host to a wide diversity of marine life. Snorkel, paddle board, kayak, and explore by skiff. Enjoy a short hike to the island’s spatter and cinder cone. Learn about the island's plantation days with a visit to the quaint Lana’i Culture and Heritage Center.

Day 4

Olowalu / West Maui

In ancient times, Olowalu was considered a place of refuge. Today, it delivers a treat of snorkeling among coral gardens teaming with underwater life and a known sea turtle habitat. The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary — located between Lana’i, Moloka’i, and Maui — provides front-row seats as you cruise through these productive marine breeding grounds searching for dolphins, whales, and other marine life.

Leave it to your Captain and crew to seek out and unveil the best opportunities the islands hold in store today. Dramatic volcanic backdrops, marine life sightings, and chances for snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding are all possible!
