The Melanesian Tourist Services LTD (MTS) has more than 50 years of experience, this makes us the obvious choice for visitors wanting to see the real PNG, because we are PNG.

MTS has a full Papua New Guinean crew and has forged relationships with many remote destinations throughout PNG for over 5 decades. This means that our guests can experience the amazing diversity of cultures, customs and art that can only be experienced aboard our vessels, which are all 100% PNG owned and operated.

Whilst we can provide basic itineraries, we need to also remain flexible to provide you with the best possible ports to visit. Our itineraries take into consideration the weather and cultural events, to give you the best possible PNG experience. We also cater for all age groups specifically allowing the younger groups to enjoy kayaking, snorkelling and even scuba diving while the older groups can enjoy our comforts aboard our vessels.

Our vision is to allow for an ultimate PNG experience, this means that we cruise by night to allow more village visits, cultural dancing and to meet the real people of Papua New Guinea, no other expeditionary cruise vessels have the same amount of flexibility and local knowledge that we do.

We aim to provide you the best natural experience, which makes us the envy of most Mega Cruise vessels. A cruise aboard the Kalibobo Spirit is the ‘Ultimate PNG Travel Experience!’ Welcome Sir Peter Barter (Hon. Dr. ACU), GCL, OBE, Kt Managing Director Melanesian Tourist Services LTD.
