Begin with a brief stop in Honolulu, before flying onto cosmopolitan Vancouver. Head into the heart of the Canadian Rockies and discover majestic landscapes, towering peaks, sparking turquoise lakes and gushing rivers. Board VIA Rail for the overnight train journey back to Vancouver before embarking on an unforgettable 10 night cruise to Hawaii, visiting the beautiful islands of Maui and Hawaii, finishing in Oahu. Enjoy an overnight stop in Honolulu for some last minute relaxation or shopping before returning to Australia.

Like a string of pearls pulled up from the sea, the jewels of your voyage are its exclusive amenities and unmatched encounters. And much like King Kamehameha did back in 1810—uniting the islands into a joyous kingdom—you’ll follow suit, uniting the islands on harmonic voyage of exploration, exchanges with locals, and learning about Hawaii’s rich, Polynesian-influenced culture. Your inter-island yacht adventure promises to be filled with pleasantries, high quality service, and warm alohas.

My favorite time of year. That’s how many feel about April and May. Alaska awakens from its winter slumber and there is a lot more to see and do (bears, spring flowers, northern lights, and easier access). The early bird catches the worm, so they say.
