Great Luxury Holidays with American Safari Cruises to Hawaii
Golf enthusiasts can seamlessly link a yacht cruise with world-class golf in Hawaii when American Safari Cruises launches its new eight-day, seven-night inter-island luxury cruises beginning Dec. 19, 2008, and continuing through May 9, 2009. Guests may opt to hit the fairways at renowned courses on Maui and Lanai during any departure, and may add on a pre- or post-cruise luxury golf package as well.
The 145-foot, 36-guest mega-yacht Safari Explorer will sail between the Big Island and Maui, where golfers may play one of Kapalua Resort’s two 18-hole championship courses, the Bay and the Plantation (home of the professional Mercedes-Benz Championship), or try the Robert Trent Jones-designed Royal Kaanapali or Kaanapali Kai. During a visit to the private island of Lanai, golfers may play the Jack Nicklaus-designed Challenge at Manele. The yacht can accommodate guests’ golf clubs; golf rates, club rental, transportation, lunch and any other charges are additional.
Pre- and post-cruise options include the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on Maui and the Mauna Lani Resort on the Big Island, with golf at the adjacent Francis H I’i. Brown sister courses. Prices vary according to accommodations and number of nights.
