We established Island Escape Cruises as a premier small ship experience that resembled the happy days I had spent on my own yacht. I loved the feeling one gets from strolling barefoot on teak decks, tasting fine wine at sunset and enjoying gourmet dining with a few close friends who share the excitement of new experiences each day.

We prepare an experience designed around the details that matter; fine linen, natural soaps and products, nightly turndown, the smell of fresh flowers, super comfortable suites and most importantly a superb team of people who love to be of genuine service to our guests.  Now, I have never enjoyed business as much as I do these days. 

We respect our precious environment and feel privileged to operate cruises in some of the most spectacular waters on the planet. We always work hand in hand with local environmentalists to ensure our guests are receiving the best experience and that our impact on the area is minimal. We are licensed by the New Zealand Government and Department of Conservation to explore well inside Marine National Parks. In the South Seas we again work closely with these Governments to protect the beautiful resource that we are showcasing to our guests. 

The entire crew and I look forward to welcome you onboard and sharing our unique small ship experience with you.
