Expedition Coordinator, Melanesian Specialist
Angela Pennefather represents EYOS Expeditions to yachts cruising to Papua New Guinea, the Solomon’s Islands, Vanuatu and north into the Pacific.
Angela was born of two cultures: Australian and Papua New Guinean. Born and raised in Papua New Guinea, she completed her higher education (Nursing; Sydney University) in Australia. She is currently based in Queensland, Australia.
Fluent in neo-Melanesian languages, Angela provides a deep insight into broader Melanesian cultures. As she guides visitors through her beloved Melanesia, she shares her unique perspective on both Melanesian and European cultures.
Her knowledge extends far inland—the result of decades following her father on his ceaseless visits around his coffee plantations, on long distance overland treks and his exploration of World War II sites.
Her decades of experience in Melanesia make her a valuable addition to any yacht visiting the remote corners of Melanesia.
A qualified master chef, she spent 8 years working on live-aboard dive boats and a further 13 years on superyachts. She understands, through hard-won in-depth experience, the needs of private yacht owners and their captains.
