Oceania: Drink It In

 
Listen to the names: Snares, Bounty, Antipodes, Auckland, Campbell, Macquarie and Chatham Islands. They are music to the ears of ‘Birders'. Apart from the Chathams, these islands are probably more isolated now than they were when they were discovered in the late 1700s and early 1800s and were regularly visited by sealers, whalers and government steamers searching for castaway sailors. It is relatively simple to get to the Chatham Islands, but opportunities to visit the others are rare. This expedition, the only one to include all of these islands, has huge appeal to pelagic enthusiasts, penguin fanatics and those interested in island endemics, though you don't have to be a keen birder to enjoy this voyage.

    • Ten species of penguin have been seen in the Subantarctics, and several breed there including king penguins, the yellow-eyed penguin, and three species of crested penguin.
    • The Subantarctic Islands harbor 15 bird species seen nowhere else. Be one of the lucky ones to add them to your life list!
    • This operator is the undisputed expert in visiting the wildlife of this region. They hold special permits not granted to other operators for landings and bird-viewing.
