The 1998-built MS Safari Explorer cruise ship (orignally named "MV Rapture”) is currently owned and operated by UnCruise Adventures USA. The vessel was extensively drydock-refurbished in 2008 for USD 3,5 million.

Safari Explorer Wiki

Safari Explorer cruise ship (former name "mv Rapture", until 2009) was built as a bare-bones expedition marine vessel. It emerged again after a $3,5 mill renovation in 2008 boasting 18 oceanview cabins, all offering private bathrooms with heated tile floors.

All Un-Cruise Adventures’ ships boast navy blue hulls and refined atmosphere. The Explorer ship's size makes it easy to visit areas that bigger ships cannot. This cruise ship is the best choice for those who like expedition-style cruising and activities, combined with luxury on board. The other Un-Cruise "Safari" ships are EndeavourQuest and Voyager.

Safari Explorer - a typical expedition cruise ship - has adventure equipment that includes stand-up paddle boards and kayaks; inflatable skiffs; hiking poles; hydrophone (for listening to sounds below the surface). The bow-mounted underwater camera is linked to the yacht's lounge and to all cabin TVs.
