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.
These full and frank independent Macquarie island holidays reviews are from travellers who have booked directly through Responsible Travel. They are not edited by us or any of the companies we work with. Find the real story, from real travellers below.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
