Could the same be applied, say, in a non-travel situation? For example, in English, I would say to my class, "Let's get underway" or something to that effect. Could I use "zarpar" in that situation?

How about this? Conduciremos al Nueva York esta mañana. ¡Zarpemos!
We use it only when talking about a ship.

Partamos
Salgamos
Vamos

All of those good when talking about any other mean of transportation including walking.
