Papua New Guinea Sepik Soiree
DURATION:11 Days/ 10 NightsREGION:Australia, New Zealand & PacificSHIP:True North
The 11 day Sepik Soiree aboard True North is a spectacular voyage of contrast, from the freshwater lakes of the mighty Sepik River to the turquoise blues of Hermit Atoll and the towering jungle volcanoes on Bagabag Island. The Bismarck Sea lies in the centre of the famed Coral Triangle and offers extraordinary water clarity and a kaleidoscope of fishes and corals. Sport fishermen will share the excitement with regular hook-ups on sailfish, black marlin and wahoo as well as the opportunity to
entice the revered Papuan black bass. Then True North embarks on a 100 kilometre journey up the Sepik River to visit the stilt-villages of Kambaramba Lake where whole communities live suspended above the water. Collect sought-after art at the Angoram carvers market, meet the Polynesian seafarers of Ninigo Atoll and listen to the thunder of the split-log drummers from Manus Island.
