Promising luxury in the pursuit of adventure, American Safari Cruises has released its 2012-2013 cruise brochure detailing voyages for its three yacht fleet. From the ice-filled fjords of Alaska to the lush islands of Hawaii, American Safari Cruises’ yachts explore some of the world’s most scenic destinations.

The nimble yachts, 12-guest Safari Spirit, 22-guest Safari Quest and 36-guest Safari Explorer, specialize in expedition cruising with flexible itineraries. Destinations include Southeast Alaska, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Columbia and Snake Rivers, Hawaiian Islands and Washington and British Columbia.

“We are releasing our brochure a bit earlier this year,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing.  “We have had a stellar year in 2011, and we want to get the new brochure in travel agents’ hands now to book 2012 as early as possible.”

In all destinations, the yachts sail flexible itineraries in order to maximize wildlife viewing opportunities and provide one-of-a-kind active adventures for guests. Activities may vary by destination and include kayaking, hiking, biking, yoga, beachcombing, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, tubing, sailing and skiff rides. Expert guides and naturalists lead many excursions.
