Follow the path of Lewis & Clark and become modern-day explorers aboard the 36-guest Safari Explorer

With the absence of three major sternwheelers plying the Columbia and Snake rivers, American Safari Cruises announces an exciting opportunity to meet the demand with a more comprehensive, luxury and active experience on the rivers. A privileged 36-guests experience a rare opportunity of cruising just onedirection along the Columbia and Snake rivers on a 9-day, 8-night yacht cruise aboard American Safari Cruises flagship, the Safari Explorer. The Safari Explorer is ideally-suited for river cruising due to its manageable size, well- appointed accommodations and public areas such as the unique Wine Library which is a perfect complement to the wineries visited. Guests have a unique opportunity of exploring the rivers completely by jet boat, kayak, inflatable skiff, transiting through eight mammoth dams, tasting wine from the barrel in Washington’s wine country and conversing with local specialists as they relate tales of the epic Lewis and Clark Expedition. No other cruise will take you this far into the breadth and depth of the wilderness, history and culture of the American West. Itinerary Details>
