While we always anticipate the unexpected on our expeditions, last month one of our expeditions in Melanesia witnessed an amazing, rarely seen spectacle out at sea—a volcanic eruption.
After our recent expedition through Melanesia—sailing from New Caledonia to Fiji—our clients were entranced by the smiles and genuine warmth of the Melanesian welcomes we received all the way through Vanuatu.
The Pacific Ocean is the greatest geographical feature on Earth. At its widest point it is nearly 8,000 miles / 13,000 kilometers across, large enough to contain all the continents. Herman Melville called it “the tide-beating heart of the world.”
We were delighted when our clients asked us to plan a two-week Papua New Guinea expedition for them.
