Expedition Highlights

  • Photograph the exquisite Marquesas with their sky-piercing volcanoes, lushly-carpeted canyons, and chiseled bays.
  • View Easter Island’s giant volcanic stone statues, or moai—representing deified ancestors, oral traditions suggest they ‘walked’ from the quarry to their stone platforms along the coastline.
  • Meet the residents of tiny Pitcairn Island; most are direct descendants of the HMS Bounty crew.
  • Visit Henderson and Ducie Islands, home to rare and endemic bird species, from Murphy’s and Phoenix petrels to the Henderson Island crake and Stephen’s lorikeet.
  • Enjoy excellent snorkeling and diving nearly every day to discover healthy reefs teeming with colorful, tropical fish.
