An authentic trans Tasman square rig passage from the ship's new base in Sydney Harbour to New Zealand is blue water sailing at its best.

An ocean passage from New Zealand to Rarotonga, in the Cook Islands sets Soren Larsen up for a tropical trade wind route in a series of voyages across Polynesia and Melanesia.

From Raro we sail north and west to the remote northern Cooks, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Samoa, the whale breeding grounds of northen Tonga and colourful Fiji.

We explore the wild untouched beauty and undisturbed culture of the islands of Vanuatu, and the classical South Sea beauty of New Caledonia. A sailing passage from Noumea to Lord Howe and Sydney completes an incredible season's voyaging.




Pacific Holidays 2010Choose which type of voyage suits you best.

The thrill and challenge of blue water ocean sailing provides total involvement in the ship, with time to master the rig, become confident aloft or learn something of ocean navigation. Or you can take a more leisurely island cruise navigating between tropical anchorages and exploring an island paradise ashore untouched by modern tourism.
