Wilderness Adventurer

Like your favorite, hippie-cool aunt, she’s sage, soulful, and game for every adventure—and likely the one leading the charge. The unassuming Wilderness Adventurer has style and all the amenities needed to get the job done. It’s just as comfortable moseying into the lounge for a pint as it is to leap from the fantail for a “polar plunge” or sketch a landscape from the sundeck.

Yep. She lives up to her name. There’s something about this boat in particular that breeds a high level of activity from guests and crew. The mantra on board could be: work hard, play hard, relax, repeat. The term “WAVE STRONG” (WAVE is an acronym for Wilderness Adventurer) was adopted years back and all aboard take it to heart. The ship’s easy-going, fun-making energy inspires fierce loyalty by her crew and guests alike. So beloved, it’s common for crew who transfer to other boats to take “wav-isms” with them.

She's outfitted with adventure gear including kayaks, paddle boards, skiffs, hiking poles, wet suits and snorkel equipment, and yoga mats. The EZ Dock launch platform on the main deck makes getting into the water a cinch. A hydrophone and a bow-mounted underwater camera share the sounds and sights below the surface. The onboard wellness amenities include a hot tub, yoga mats, and fitness equipment.

Common to all cabins are: Flat-screen TV/DVD; iPod docking station; private bath with shower; a view window (no portholes).
