Guests may be as active as they wish, from kayaking and skiff excursions, to hiking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, beachcombing or enjoying the scenery from the comfort of the lounge, spacious deck or on-deck hot tub.

Enhancing the experience are naturalist presentations and a friendly and knowledgeable crew. Shipboard amenities may include an underwater camera projecting marine activity to stateroom and lounge televisions, fitness equipment, yoga mats, resource and DVD library and hot tub.
