We are excited to announce that National Geographic Traveler has selected the “Wake of Wallace
” adventure cruise in their May 2013 "Tours of a Lifetime" issue. This trip has also been recognized by The Active Times for providing one of "The best 30 new adventure travel trips of 2013".
Skillfully led by Flora and Fauna International’s Dr. Tony Whitten
, this adventurous itinerary goes from Ternate to Sorong through the Eastern Indonesian Archipelago and diverse island chain of Raja Ampat. Activities include seeking Wallace’s Red Bird of paradise and other avian endemics on guided jungle hikes, visits with local communities, and snorkeling the remote coral reefs in this world renowned marine ecosystem.
Apart from the scenery and the expert tutelage of Dr. Whitten, what makes this trip so remarkable is the crew that takes care of you. All locals from different areas of the Indonesian Archipelago, they are a friendly bunch that not only keep the ship operating successfully but share parts of their culture and personalities with you. Evening songs and guitar jams were some of my favorite memories from my voyage with them and I’m sure they’ll make big impression on you as well!
Spaces for this year’s departure are going fast so please don’t hesitate to get your cabin reserved for the Nov 8-19, 2013 sailing ($4950 per person).
