An un-cruise cruise in Hawaii?

Jump to last reply

Hi there. My husband and I are looking into an atypical cruise of Hawaii. Small ship, like around 40 passengers. The focus is on nature. http://www.un-cruise.com/hawaiian-islands-cruises
I prefer a land-based vacations, and if we did this cuise, I would tack on 4 or 5 more days on the front and end of this 8 day cruise to that end. However, this small ship provides all the things we like to do EXCEPT stay on land! We like to kayak and snorkel, and nature watch and are not at ALL interested in glitzy touristy things or really even night life. What duds we are! I always plan everything and we end up with great vacations that suit us, but for once, it would be so nice to have someone (other than me) do all the work in seeking out and planning excursions, getting the gear together, planning the nature trips & nature watching and we could just go! Everything, all excursions, alcohol, EVERYTHING is included in the cruise price.
However, and I know nothing (yet) of Hawaii, but based on the cruise website it looks as though they are trying to keep it simple. I have started reading about high winter winds. The cruises are only November - April, so I am slightly concerned with a rocking rolling boat, but I guess they have it then so you can see the whales. I used to be quite a sail boater, but I've noticed some seasickness recently. I'll get a patch or something. Age. :(
Islands they visit: Molokaʻi, Lanaʻi, Olowalu / West Maui, Honomalino Bay, Kailua-Kona, then disembark Hawaiʻi, the Big Island.
What do you think?
