New Caledonia is a tiny island not far off the eastern border of Australia and just west of Fiji. In addition to the picturesque scenery, the island is known for a tasteful blend of French and native Kanak cultural influences.

The collision of cultures began around 1853 when it was annexed on behalf of France in an effort to foil any attempts to settle by the British. During this time, the island was occupied by the native ancestors of the people now known as the Kanak.

Tucked away on the southeast corner of the island is the capital, Nouméa.

You’ll leave directly from our cruise ship pier to this tiny wonderland, where you’ll meet your professional jet boat captain.

You and 9 other guests will hop aboard the high-powered boat where you’ll spin, speed, and cruise around the incredible bays surrounding the island.

Be ready to get a little wet, because this action-packed boat ride is full of splashes!

Race Luxury Cars in Singapore

If you have a serious need for speed and a love for fast cars, it’s time to contact us and book a cruise to Singapore.

Singapore is a city-state located off the peninsula of Malaysia. It was once a British trading post and has since grown into a bustling hub with a thriving economy and world-class nightlife experiences.

A big part of the exciting nightlife in Singapore is the car culture.

Because cars are highly regulated in Singapore and come with a lot of fees and restrictions, fast and fancy cars are the most elegant of commodities.

Top sports car enthusiasts end up here for racing and cruising, and for one exciting evening, you’ll get to be part of the experience.

Starting in Marina Bay, you’ll have your choice of a Ferrari, McLaren or Lamborghini to cruise (or race) around.

No racing experience?

An instructor will take you step-by-step through the process. Or if you’d prefer, you’re welcome to enjoy the thrills from the passenger seat while an experienced racer takes the wheel.

You’ll then head to the racing track where you can go as fast as 185 miles per hour!

Flyboarding is an extreme sport rapidly growing in popularity — especially for adrenaline junkies ready to try something new.

The Amsterdam Flyboarding adventure is action-packed from start to finish.

Flyboards are like hoverboards you can use over water. Simply attach it to a jet ski or boat, strap in, and turn it on.

Soon, you’re floating and flying above the ocean at heights that can reach up to 50 feet! You can even spin, flip, and dive into the water like a dolphin. And you don’t even need extensive training to do it.

For your Amsterdam adventure, your guide will already have the flyboard set up and ready for you. All you have to do from there is listen to a few tips, ask any questions you have, then get to soaring!

Go on an Action-Packed Desert Safari in Dubai

What do you picture when you imagine a desert safari? Likely, slow-paced camel rides and long walks come to mind.

If that’s the case, the Dubai Red Dunes safari is about to blow your mind in more ways than one.

Sure, you’ll get to relax on a camel’s back (what’s a desert safari without one?) for a while. But you’ll also be enjoying plenty of other kinds of adventures to get your heart racing.

You’ll be picked up by a driver at your port, then the thrills begin as soon as you arrive at the dunes.

Your day will kick off with “dune bashing.” Dune bashing is a type of off-roading experience specially created for the desert. You’ll whip up sand in every way possible in your SUV, gliding from dune to dune.

Once you’re ready to come down from the adrenaline rush, it’s off to get the full Bedouin experience. Bedouins are the oldest inhabitants of the Arabian deserts.

You’ll head to camp where you’ll enjoy camel riding, delicious BBQ food, hookah, and traditional dance lessons.

Puerto Rico is rich with scenery and adventure — the perfect combo for the traveling adrenaline junkie.

Get your fill of both with the body rafting, caving and hiking adventure.

This 5-6 hour journey will take you through the rain forest of Arecibo, one that’s known for its lush and diverse landscape. In these ancient lands, your guide will take you on adventures you’ve only seen in movies.

You’ll start by body rafting through the canyon rivers. Body rafting means you’ll be free-floating down the waterways with nothing but a life jacket, helmet, and your guide.

Next, you’ll make a stop to explore the deep depths of the caves around, where you’ll learn about the unique biodiversity of the area.

Finally, you’ll enjoy a guided hike through the incredible rainforest, taking in the sights of animals, incredibly tall trees, and exotic plants you can’t find anywhere else in the world.
