Welcome to Cruising New Zealand - All Prices in NZD
The name says it. These intimate 22-88 passenger ships – tiny luxury yachts, small expedition ships, and a coastal steamer – are nothing like their big-ship competitors. You will see each destination as it actually is, exploring remote coves, bays and fjords that only small ships can reach.
Travellers looking for unique destinations and up close wilderness adventures.
UnCruise Adventures ships offer a mix of casual cruising and boutique yachting. Embrace the “Un-ness” philosophy – unrushed, uncrowded, unbelievable. Breaking away from the masses. Challenge. Freely used to release, exemplify, or intensify a force or quality. To engage, connect, and explore unique places, oneself, and with others on a most uncommon adventure.
Most off-ship excursions are included in the cruise fare and encompass such things as hikes, skiff tours, and visiting natural attractions. But there’s also time to borrow a kayak or snorkel gear, improve your skills on a stand-up paddleboard, or sit in the hot tub. Itineraries spend optimum time in nature areas and captains have flexibility to divert to, say, follow a pod of whales or decide to anchor in secluded places at night so that guests awaken to spectacular views.
If you’re active, a nature lover, age 45-plus, then you will love Un-Cruise small ship experiences. Nature-loving kids will also enjoy these adventure-filled cruises.
