Exploring Papua by cruise ship

Papua New Guinea is often in our news, yet how many of us have visited? We hear about the Kokoda Trail because it is an essential part of our history, but there is so much more. The spectacular terrain makes many parts inaccessible except by sea or by air. Coastal waters are warm because of its proximity to the equator and some of the world’s best diving and coral reefs can be found here.
The expedition ship, True North, is visiting Papua in October this year and a number of cabins on this exclusive adventure have just become available. Luxurious and comfortable, there are 20 crew to the 36 passengers and True North prides itself on its fine dining record. There are 6 expedition boats, not zodiacs, and the cruise itinerary is organised to allow passengers to do what they want, when they want.
This cruise departs from Sorong, however guests will arrive in Darwin and be escorted to Sorong on a chartered flight. Highlights of the cruise will involve a quest for the rare and beautiful Wilson’s Bird of Paradise, snorkeling and diving in out of the way reefs and lagoons, helicopter rides over the islands and visits to island villages to learn about the local way of life. If an adventure featuring underwater exploration, fabulous scenery, an exotic and little-visited culture, spectacular scenery and fine food is what you are looking for… then contact me today. This trip may not happen again and it may truly be a once-in-a-lifetime chance.
