Safari Explorer

Safari Explorer sails the Hawaiian Islands.

The 36-guest Safari Explorer is designed for upscale comfort in the pursuit of adventure. Aboard this boutique yacht, three public decks provide room for mingling, relaxing, and enjoying the fresh air—with exploration in the spotlight.

The Safari Explorer has what mariners call “feet” that take her into wild areas other 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 yacht the prize of the fleet. And 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. Throughout the year, she bops around the islands of Hawaii soaking up the laid-back aloha spirit—weaving through the islands, ready for bow-riding dolphins. A protective spirit 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.
