Island Passage

Island Escape Cruises is delighted to introduce our boutique private yacht style cruise experience on-board the 24-guest Island Passage. Our cruises do not cover large ocean distances. Instead, we explore inside the magnificent sheltered lagoons and bays where the larger ships simply cannot attempt to enter. This allows our guests to enjoy full days at play and full restful sleep each night at anchor. Island Passage is very large for just 24 passengers in a child free environment (minimum age of 13 years). She excels with very spacious cabins, generous en-suites, an enormous interior dining and saloon area plus an expansive aft deck where guests spend a large amount of their time. There is no feeling on-board of being crowded. The result is more like being on-board a luxury private yacht with friends. Oversized suites and cabins, each with their own en-suite, wide halls and expansive decks await the discerning traveller. The guest’s experience is designed around the little things that matter…fine linens, fresh flowers, nightly turndown service with chocolates and bottled water to name a few. Exceptional food and fine wines are an essential part of your cruise. Simply put, every meal has to be magnificent. Local seafood, maybe even some that you caught yourself is featured daily. You'll enjoy other gourmet delicacies all presented by chefs with a strong European flair. Our on-board wine cellar is brimming with a selection of award winning French, Australian and New Zealand wines. Our complimentary bar includes wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks, bottle water and a selection of teas and coffees. We have a range of price-inclusive activities available that include snorkelling, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing equipment and tenders, landing craft, hand chosen shore excursions and even a helicopter pad for those more adventurous who wish to explore further afield. In-cabin movies and a well-stocked library are also available. Our cruise destinations are specific and unique, where our vessel can maximise the destination for guests wanting a more private, personalised and relaxing cruise experience.
