Heritage Expeditions

Today most people fly across the Pacific and Melanesian Islands completely oblivious to the unique islands and ecosystems over which they pass. Rarely is there an opportunity to sail to and explore some of the lesser known islands in company with a team of expert historians and naturalists.

Heritage Expeditions offers the serious ornithologist one of several cruises to see the rarely visited Kermadec Islands, Tonga (including the remote northern island of ‘Tin Can’ or Nuiafo’ou) the outer islands of Fiji, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. These islands boast lush tropical rainforest packed with many endemic birds and other wildlife. The seas surrounding the islands are some of the richest in the world in terms of marine diversity.

There are two expeditions scheduled for April 2014. The first starts from Tauranga, New Zealand on the 2nd April 2014 and the second on the 16th April starts from Suva, Fiji . Yes ! Kadavu Island is on the itinerary so you should get to see our four endemic species….
