South Pacific Adventure Travel & Expeditions
Perhaps one of the world’s most iconic destinations, with its mist-shrouded volcanic peaks, turquoise waters teeming with rainbow-hued sea life, and decidedly decadent beaches, the South Pacific should top any adventure traveler’s life list. Sail by small-ship for a South Pacific adventure tour sure to engage your mind and spirit, with snorkeling, diving, and walks on the sand juxtaposed with lively dancing by the locals in Micronesia, searching for the megapode in Tonga, and viewing the amazing stone currency on the island of Yap or the enigmatic moai on Easter Island.
During your South Pacific expedition, Zegrahm’s naturalists, marine biologists, and ornithologists step onto the islands with you—introducing you to the Marshallese, renowned for their ingenious canoes; navigating Zodiacs to seldom-visited isles; sharing knowledge of endemic bird species; or hiking through remote and lush volcanic landscapes. The sea itself defines South Pacific eco travel and to that end, you’ll snorkel among colorful reefs teeming with fish, dolphins, turtles, and whales; sail from remote atolls to towering volcanic islands; and take Zodiac cruises down mangrove lined rivers, along wave-beaten shores, and from the ship to sandy beaches where throngs of adorable children greet you. Join us to experience the countless underwater wonders and cultural highlights of one of Mother Nature’s finest accomplishments.
The itineraries we offer vary from year to year; below please find our upcoming South Pacific adventure travel expeditions.
Expeditions to South Pacific
Book-ended by the fabled islands of Fiji and Tahiti, this South Pacific expedition strings together a dazzling array of palm-fanned islands ringed in waters of incredible hues. From the jungle-draped volcanic mountains of Wallis & Futuna to the tiny, low-lying atolls of the Cook Islands, Tahiti adventure travel reveals a world of supreme natural beauty and people proud to share their ceremonial traditions of music and dance. Along the way discover seldom-visited Tokelau and search for endemic species in the lush rain forests of Samoa.
For many, Polynesia is the very definition of paradise; evoking classic images of palm-fanned beaches, azure lagoons, and exotic, flower-bedecked islanders. Begin in legendary Tahiti and continue east for a Marquesas tour, admiring their sky-piercing volcanoes, lushly-carpeted canyons, and chiseled bays. The low-lying Tuamotu Archipelago, whose remote atolls—mere rings of coral dotted by tiny islets enclosing aquamarine lagoons—offer some of the world’s most dazzling snorkeling and diving.
