See New Zealand  from a new perspective

Voyages of New Zealand bring to mind awe-inspiring landscapes, fascinating Melanesian and Maori culture, and an abundance of unique wildlife. With over 7,000km of New Zealand’s coastline to be explored, you will sail into sheltered sounds and glacial fiords, walk forested trails to spot birdlife, and experience the history, food and wine of the wonderful East Coast.

For the first time, Coral Geographer will explore New Zealand’s coast, and journey to the remote Subantarctic Islands of Snares, Auckland, Campbell, Antipodes and Bounty. These islands, World-Heritage protected, take us back in time to destinations where humans have had little impact. Here, we will wonder through colourful and otherworldly megaherb pastures, see the mysterious albatross and myriads of other rare birdlife, and wander shorelines home to sea lions. Journey far from the ordinary on these small ship voyages.
