The Details

Un-Cruise Adventures

InnerSea Discoveries/American Safari Cruises has officially changed its name to Un-Cruise Adventures. The line operates seven boats carrying 22 to 88 guests in Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, the Columbia and Snake rivers, Coastal Washington and British Columbia.

“We’ve experienced phenomenal growth and success over the last four years,” said Dan Blanchard, principal and CEO.  “What began as yacht cruising under the American Safari Cruises name has now expanded to include more styles of Un-Cruise Adventures, and this name change reflects that growth.”

The company has three yachts offering Luxury Adventures: the 22-guest Safari Quest, the 36-guest Safari Explorer and the 86-guest Safari Endeavour. All three feature an inclusive, upscale experience along with adventure activities. The 88-guest Safari Legacy, a replica Victorian steamer, is scheduled to debut in August and will offer inclusive Heritage Adventures focusing on living history onboard and onshore through presentations and tours. Three expedition vessels — the 60-guest Wilderness Adventurer, the 76-guest Wilderness Discoverer and the 76-guest Wilderness Explorer — offer the company’s Active Adventures for those desiring more outdoor explorations at a lower price point.

“Un-Cruise Adventures reflects the distinct nature of our small-group travel by boat,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Luxury of Experience really speaks to what Un-Cruise Adventures is all about. With a cap of 88 passengers, guests are able to experience more of the destinations through a wide range of activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling and hiking under our Luxury and Active Adventures or reenacting history with Heritage Adventures.”

New in 2013
This year, the Safari Legacy will begin operating in Alaska, and then sails on the Columbia and Snake rivers in the fall and the spring. It marks the debut of Heritage Adventures. In November, Wilderness Explorer will begin sailing Active Adventures in the Hawaiian Islands between Oahu and the Big Island.  Three Alaska Unleashed departures are scheduled for the Wilderness Adventurer in Alaska for clients desiring an amped-up week of high adventure.
