Start your journey through Melanesia in lovely Lautoka, Fiji with a visit to Nadi Temple or a relaxing mud pool bath before diving into the crystal clear waters of Yasawa-I-Rara Island. Upon arriving in Port Vila, sink your teeth into fresh seasonal fruit at Mama’s Market, feel the cleansing mist of Mele Cascades waterfall, take a swim at beautiful Jade Beach, or head to the Hawksbill Turtle Sanctuary. Excitement ensues on the approach to Tanna, where Mount Yasur erupts daily, wild horses roam free, and untouched underwater caves await curious snorkelers. Take in the aromatic Mucaweng Vanilla Plantation of Lifou and the outrigger-style pirogues of Ile de Pins. Before embarking on your journey across the Coral Sea, spend the day exploring Noumea, New Caledonia, the World War II headquarters for the U.S. military in the South Pacific. Then sit back, relax and feel the calming rhythm of life at sea with no interruptions. Reconnect with yourself and your companions on sea days crossing the Coral Sea before exploring Cairns, Australia. Plan extra time to wander the Cairns Esplanade, explore the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, discover Daintree National Park, and experience the magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef.
