Macquarie Island

Macquarie Island

An island only reachable by small expedition cruise, a journey to Macquarie Island – home to millions of penguins, clusters of extraordinary flowering ‘megaherbs’ and marine mammals including southern right whales and leopard seals – is an otherworldly experience. Living at sea with up to 50 other passengers, you’ll sail between some of the world’s most remote and wild landscapes, hopping on and off wherever possible to explore your entirely unfamiliar surrounds.

Antarctica and New Zealand Subantarctic Islands Wildlife Cruise
Memorable parts? The sub antarctic islands, wildlife and the icebergs. Tips? Prepare for a big sea voyage and lots of time to spare. Local benefits? There are no people, but the environment is excellent and getting better as recovery from last 2 centuries of exploitation has taken place. Nz and Aust governments should be congratulated on the feral pest controls. Overall rating? Up there with the big ones. (more)Robert Mock
