Un-Cruise Adventures said it has acquired a 64-passenger ship that will sail Mexico's Sea of Cortez, starting in November.
The ship, currently known as the Sea Voyager, will be renamed Safari Voyager. It will replace the 86-passenger Safari Endeavor in the Sea of Cortez.
Plans call for Safari Voyager to transition to year-round cruising in Central America, beginning in December 2015.
In Central America, it would sail Costa Rica during the winter, Belize in the summers and offer transits of the Panama Canal in spring and fall.
Safari Endeavor would then return to a winter schedule in the Sea of Cortez.
The future Safari Voyager is undergoing renovation in Colombia. It will be the eighth vessel in the small-ship fleet of Un-Cruise Adventures, previously known as InnerSea Discoveries/American Safari Cruises.
From 2001 to 2009, Sea Voyager was operated in Central America by Lindblad Expeditions under a charter. It was listed for sale in 2011 through a broker by SV Six Ltd., a Bahamian corporation.
