ISLAND ESCAPE CRUISES is a New Zealand based luxurious super yacht operator with a 15-year history in operating small ship voyages in New Zealand and the remote South Pacific Islands.

In 2021 we launch our brand-new yacht, the Island Escape. She is a 53.5 metre yacht designed by Vard in Norway and with the interior designed by well-known Tillberg Design of Sweden and will offer a new standard of yachting to our guests.

With just 32 guests onboard, Island Escape will provide an exclusive experience that is supported by our professional crew of 14 who love to overdeliver on personalised service.

We invite you to explore the wonders of New Zealand and Australia with us. During the southern hemisphere summer months, November to April, we can take you to NZ’s World Heritage Fiordland National Park. Virtually isolated, with access only by sea and helicopter, this region is beyond sensational and often described as the ultimate nature lovers paradise. Or let us show you our beautiful Bay of Islands with its rich history and its more than 140 subtropical islands, undeveloped beaches and rich fishing grounds. In winter we explore the Wild Kimberley Coast of Australia, with more than 2600 islands, cascading waterfalls, reefs and crystal clear water, this destination is on many bucket lists. 

We look forward to welcoming you onboard the ‘Island Escape’.
