Scattered like pearls throughout the Bismarck and North Solomon sea, these islands are the stuff of dreams! Thatched huts sheltered by swaying palms, dazzling coral beaches, atolls with towering, green-draped mountains – these are the idyllic homes of people whose lives continue to be interwoven with ritual and ceremony that embraces and nurtures every aspect of life from birth to death.
The Kalibobo Spirit can follow the same route as the Melanesian Discoverer spending 7-10 days sailing through this paradise between Madang and Alotau, with abundant time for numerous shore excursions to allow you to explore spectacular landscapes and interact with these unique cultures.
The flexibility of our schedule and routes allow us to journey wide and far to the provinces of Manus, New Ireland, East New Britain, Bougainville, West New Britain, Morobe, Milne Bay and, of course, Madang. We can visit beautiful island groups like Siassi, Witu Group, D’Entracastreaux Group, Marshall Bennetts, Trobriand Islands and many more. Here you will witness the real South Pacific – the South Pacific of Michener, Stevenson and Matisse in vivid, living breathing colour.
