The ultra-luxe appeal

 
  • Kaori’s expedition to North America’s Inside Passage is exclusive to A&K – few private yachts make this journey on an exclusive basis
  • Most large cruise companies travelling the Inside Passage have cancelled for 2021, so experience it now with few other visitors around
  • Journeying by privately chartered vessel is a more intimate option, allowing you to explore at your own pace on a personalised itinerary
  • Expert A&K expedition staff are available to join your journey to offer insights into the wildlife and landscapes of this remote region
 

Your journey

The Inside Passage epitomises the pristine beauty of North America’s fjordlands. Here, evergreen islands tumble down into glittering glacial waters, and wildlife – from whale to bear to eagle – roams free. Experience this remote region in a way few ever do: aboard a luxury crewed schooner, exclusively chartered for you. 

From Seattle’s historic Elliott Bay, set sail for the Salish Sea, whose channels, straits and waterways host a dazzling array of marine animals, including orca. Spend days exploring the picturesque San Juan islands by land and sea. Visit Lopez, whose rocky outcroppings play host to harbour seals. On Orcas island, hike to the top of Mount Constitution for a panoramic view of the archipelago, or perhaps embark on a thrilling skiff excursion. Venture between the hidden coves and bays of Sucia’s Marine Park, and soak up the spectacular views of Washington’s Olympic National Park – a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. 

Throughout your tailored voyage, you benefit from the expertise of a small, dedicated crew, which includes an A&K naturalist and guide – there to offer invaluable insights. This is a rare opportunity to explore a region of renowned natural beauty, in a truly intimate way.  

“Kaori is one of the finest yachts in North America today. It’s her blend of elegance and art, the ability to harness the wind for her power and speed, and a layout that allows her guests to become one with the natural beauty that gives Kaori’s guests the experience of a lifetime. 

"The experience of sailing aboard her is emotionally stunning and the reason A&K has chosen to charter her exclusively for our clients.” – Jess Horne, A&K ultra luxury product manager

For an exceptional privately chartered yacht, look no further than Kaori. Powered by both wind and motor, this 38-metre luxury schooner has journeyed extensively across the Americas, from Alaska to Costa Rica and into the island-sprinkled South Pacific. 

Kaori cuts a fine figure as it plies the seas, with a sleek white exterior and classically styled interior replete with wood fixtures and elegant furnishings. The yacht accommodates up to nine guests across its four staterooms. Social spaces include the heated and covered aft area, and – up the spiral stairs – the flying bridge, with wind-protected, heated enclosures, hot tub and seating. Two dining rooms provide comfortable venues in which to enjoy the gourmet menu served on board. 

During your private A&K charter, Kaori will be expertly helmed by a crew of five: captain, chef, engineer/deckhand, steward/housekeeper and your A&K expedition leader. The latter will be on hand to offer fascinating insights into the landscape, wildlife and cultures encountered during your journey. Kaori’s on-board kayaks, paddleboards and motorised inflatables allow you to get even closer to nature on your personalised voyage.
