Chatham & Antipodes Island Expedition
An epic exploration of New Zealand's archipelagos, start by setting sail for the stunning scenery, intriguing history, flora and fauna of the remote Chatham Islands, making explorations by Zodiac cruise. Then, chart a course for the Sub Antarctic Islands, including a sail past the Bounty Islands, before landings in the Antipodes and the Snares with their unrivalled wildlife viewing opportunities. We will also visit Ulva Island (Stewart Island) on our way back to Dunedin - a sanctuary for many bird species and great for bird-watching close up.
