Around NZs sub-Antarctic islands

Review for Spirit Of Enderby to Australia & New Zealand

This expedition provides access to islands, Snares, Campbell Island and Auckland Islands group, normally closed to the public with expert guides. Fortunately we had perfect weather and reasonably calm seas. The megaherbs were flowering in abundance and the albatrosses, other sea and land birds, sealions, seals and penguins were easily observed. We landed and walked on Auckland and Campbell ...

Amazing Sub-Antarctics!

Heritage Expeditions cemented their reputation for professionalism and sharing their passion for nature. From the first moment I read about the Sub-Antarctic islands (and saw the great exhibition at the Invercargill Museum) I have known I had to go, and Heritage gave me the opportunity to do that. The ship was well-appointed, and safety was taken very seriously. Our guides knew their stuff and ...

This trip was a fantastic mix of wildlife and culture and was so diverse every day. We had a great group of adventurous people and knowledgeable staff who bought every experience to life. I could not have hoped for a better trip. Wildlife highlights were numerous close up encounters with whales, including Humpback, Minke, Fin, Grey & Orca. Wrangel & Herald Islands offered amazing opportunities to ...

The definition of expedition cruising with remarkable encounters

Review for Spirit Of Enderby to South Pacific

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

I chose Heritage Expeditions, since they offered an expedition to such remote places in the world. And why was this the definition of expedition cruising? Nowadays certain places and destinations are becoming so crowded with tourists, but with Heritage Expeditions we visited places that were never visited before by any tourists. The encounters we made on this trip with meeting tribes that never ...

Antarctic wildlife and views great, expedition company awful

Review for Spirit Of Enderby to Antarctica

This cruise company was recommended by many Australian former Antarctic expeditioners (staff of the Aus Gov). It failed in most respects. The ship was old, the amenities poor. But the biggest failing was safety. There were no grab rails in the cabins and we had 5-9m swells for many, many days. There was no simple holding device (a hydraulic stop? A hook?) to prevent the door slamming closed in ...

Having had a great Antarctica cruise a few year ago I jumped at the chance to go gain. I'd travelled with Heritage before and knew that this was not a 5 star ship, so budget "hotel" services did not bother me. There were 3 areas that did. 1. Safety. It's all very well to say "one hand for the ship and one for you" but if there is nowhere to hold onto in the cabin or the bathroom there is a ...

A true expedition to the Ross Sea - a unique perspective of Antarctica

I went because it was a route that few people ever do. I had already been to the Antarctic peninsula, and I was excited to take this more historic route that few people take. I was also super excited to get to the Subantarctic Islands - so few people even know about them! This is really one of the only cruises that stop there. This route offered an immense amount of wildlife viewing too. I had ...
