Flexible yacht itineraries focus on the leeward side of the eastern-most Hawaiian Islands.
“With our growth and increased capacity for winter time Un-Cruise Adventures, it’s important for us to engage our travel agent partners about our new offerings,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We value the time it takes agents to learn all the nuances and differences associated with our style of adventures. Adventure travel from a comfortable, flexible platform such as our yachts and expedition vessels has reached new heights of popularity – accentuated by lucrative agency commissions.”

Adventurists earn bonus commissions and are listed on the line’s website for referral. Other benefits include reduced rate travel, advance notice on special offers, entry into a drawing for a free cruise each year and a framed Adventurist certificate. All commissions are issued to the agency.
In the Hawaiian Islands and the Sea of Cortés, guests can be as active as they like and activities include trekking, beachcombing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, snorkeling and skiff excursions.
