– Offshore Outpost Expeditions (OOE) announces a new type of expedition cruise experience for adventure travelers during the 2018 cruise season. Dubbed “adventure cruising” by OOE, guests have unprecedented freedom to spontaneously invent their own adventures to remote bays and pristine beaches of the Sea of Cortez on OOE’s 160-foot Pacific Provider.
Having launched its inaugural cruise on November 26, 2017, the ship departs from Cabo San Lucas or La Paz every Sunday through early April, and offers guests the opportunity to go “beyond the destination” with deeply personalized and flexible travel experiences.
The Pacific Provider is a specially-designed expedition ship boasting spacious cabins, comfortable dining areas and lounges, and expansive deck space for viewing, dining, and lounging. The ship accommodates a maximum of twelve guests and eight crew per cruise, four tenders, and the expert staff is always ready to provide advice and support. The ship has a size and maneuverability that allows guests to journey to areas not accessible by larger cruise and expedition ships.
“We have created a different type of expedition experience,” said David Mullen, co-founder and Chief Expedition Officer. “We provide spacious, premium accommodations to a small number of guests. Our crew’s intimate knowledge of the areas in which we cruise allows our guests to discover their personal journey—and share the adventure with friends, family or colleagues. Our goal is to immerse our clients in the location and connect them with the outdoors in an exciting entertaining way, and so far we have done just that. The feedback has been absolutely phenomenal. We have genuinely created a one-of-a-kind adventure, with the comforts of a yacht-like experience on the ship. Nobody has wanted to leave the ship at the end of the week.”
OOE expects to appeal to adventurous travelers who want to take a step beyond the ordinary in creating their travel experience—from couples to multi-generational families to groups of friends to executive or team retreats. OOE cruises offer flexibility and accommodations at prices comparable to larger and more Spartan expedition experiences. The company expects to announce a second destination later this year.
