Polished, unwavering, and upscale, the 84-passenger Safari Endeavour may be the workhorse of the fleet but it’s her zest-for-life persona that’s remembered most. She looks sharp—a nod to the crew who work hard to keep her that way.
Wood fixtures and accents shine and artwork highlights the warm and cool waters where she sails. No other UnCruise ship covers more territory, and like her namesake, Captain Cook’s Endeavour, both the ship and crew are true explorers. Her roomy lounge, dining room, and sun deck are undisputed, but the Safari Endeavour claims to have the biggest heart, too.
The observation decks are perfect for wildlife viewing and or even relaxing under the stars. There’s an open bridge policy, which allows you to visit with your captain and crew and discuss the operation of the ship or even learn about navigation. You might even be able to a participate in a galley tour (it’s amazing what they do in this space).
Everyone has their preferences, be it solitude or a few laughs with others. And on board the Safari Endeavour, it’s easy to have both. There are quiet nooks and crannies to dive into a good book or sketch the passing landscapes. Or maybe you’d rather hang out in the lounge or on the bow eyeing the next WOW!
The Safari Endeavour is ready for action and equipped with top-of-the-line kayaks, paddle boards, hiking poles, binoculars, and even a custom-built kayak launch system. And depending on your destination, snorkeling gear and wet suits.
Kayaks allow you to join a guided paddle to a planned destination, or explore at your own pace on an open paddle. Try paddle boarding in protected coves. For an easygoing adventure, step off the beam and into an inflatable skiff. Hikes are available for every activity level; from quiet strolls to rugged climbs up to sweeping cliff-side viewpoints.
Safari Endeavour’s Main Lounge offers an ambience that is welcoming and casual. with a variety of board games, books, DVDs, and plenty of space to kick back and watch the landscape go by.
On the Sun deck, the Sun Lounge provides a relaxing atmosphere for soaking up the sun, taking in the regional scenery, observing local wildlife, or even get some exercise in.
