Heritage Expeditions launches 2023 New Zealand coastal sailings

Kayaking is one of the pastimes offered by expedition yacht Heritage Explorer
New Zealand family-owned Heritage Expeditions’ 2023 coastal programme aboard the 18-passenger yacht Heritage Explorer includes a new seven-day itinerary taking in Hauraki Gulf and the Coromandel Peninsula.

The round trip departs Auckland on January 21, 2023.

Furthest reaches

The five- to 10-day voyages aboard the 30-metre New Zealand flagged vessel go to the furthest reaches of New Zealand, visiting remote bays and island sanctuaries where native wildlife flourishes.

There are 10 cabins across three of four decks and the expedition yacht has a wood-finished interior with a dining room that offers a 180-degree panorama and specialises in fresh local produce and wines.

‘With New Zealand about to open up to the world again, small ship expedition cruising is the perfect way to experience parts of the country still unexplored by many New Zealanders,’ Commercial Director and expedition leader Aaron Russ said.

‘Our immersive wilderness experiences are created to share parts of New Zealand many visitors, and New Zealanders alike, rarely get the chance to experience,’ Russ said.
