Far, far away… out here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean… we are far away from our families during the holidays, and this can be tough as crew members aboard the Safari Explorer. We become “ohana”—family as we sail around these remote and scenic islands. This year, the crew got together for Christmas dinner down in our cozy galley and enjoyed a Secret Santa Celebration.
In February of 2011, I was lucky enough to experience our Sea of Cortés cruise. It was, quite possibly, one of the most enjoyable weeks of my life.
When a boat goes into drydock for work, staff and crew often say it's getting a "shave and a haircut," meaning it will emerge from the work shiny, clean and renewed. Such is the case with the 22-guest Safari Quest right now at Fishermen's Terminal, outside office headquarters in Seattle.
The 36-guest Safari Explorer is now sailing weekly Luxury Adventures among the Hawaiian Islands. Our Hawaiian Seascapes cruise sails between Hawaii, the Big Island and Lana'i (and reverse).
The Safari Endeavour departs for Baja this weekend. She'll travel for about 11 days, without stopping, to their destination - La Paz. Nine crew will be on the boat for this trip, and the rest of the crew will meet them in La Paz. This week her entire crew is training to prepare for the Sea of Cortés Luxury Un-Cruise Adventures.
