Expedition cruises to the Pacific, New Zealand and the South Pole
For more than 35 years, Heritage Expeditions has pioneered conservation-driven small ship expedition cruises to some of the world's wildest, least explored and biologically rich regions, including Antarctica, Japan and Southeast Asian Islands, the South Pacific, Australia's Kimberley Coast and New Zealand's Subantarctic Islands, Fiordland and Stewart Island, and now Marlborough Sounds, Abel Tasman, Bay of Islands and the Gulf of Hauraki. Whether you are a birder, photographer, naturalist, conservationist or just an adventurous spirit, these expeditions offer an unparalleled travel experience.
Heritage Adventurer is a truly pioneering expedition ship of exceptional pedigree. Because of her celebrated history and sophisticated design, she is often called the "Grande Dame of Exploration Cruising. She was specially built for adventure in 1991 at the Rauma shipyard in Finland and specially designed for polar research. New Zealand-built expedition yacht Heritage Explorer joins Heritage Expedition's small vessel fleet, creating new opportunities for exploration around New Zealand's coasts. Heritage Explorer sets a new standard for exploration in New Zealand, combining ultimate comfort with unique itineraries and a personalized experience with a maximum of only 18 guests on board.
