Heritage Expeditions pioneered expeditions to the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand, the South Pacific, the Ross Sea region of Antarctica, and the Russian Far East. We operate our own polar research vessel, the Spirit of Enderby, which carries a maximum of just 50 passengers. We offer a true small ship experience whilst contributing to conservation through experiential learning and education.
The Ross Sea of Antarctica is one of the most beautiful, untouched and remote areas of the planet. In addition, we run regular voyages to the World Heritage Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand and Australia - home to a vast array of wildlife including albatross, penguins, petrels, prions, sea lions, elephant seals, fur seals and much more. Further north, we also explore the unique tropical islands of Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu on our voyages ranging from two weeks to a month long in duration.
We also run expedition cruises in the Far East of Russia. Two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the once top secret Russian Far East remains largely unexplored. This isolation has protected the world’s best kept secret – it is one of the last remaining pristine and most wildlife-rich wildernesses on Earth.
The real focus and emphasis of every expedition is getting passengers ashore as often as possible for as long as possible with maximum safety and comfort. Our Expeditions are accompanied by some of the most experienced naturalists and guides, who have devoted a lifetime to field research in the areas that we visit. The ship is crewed by a very enthusiastic and most experienced Russian Captain and crew.
