Sub-Antarctic Islands of New Zealand

Silver Explorer Cruise Ship
Silver Explorer
144 Passengers

Tiny dots in the Southern Ocean, sometimes called the Forgotten Islands, New Zealand and Australia’s Sub-Antarctic islands are among the least visited places on Earth. World renowned for their bird colonies (expect to see 10 species of penguin here); these islands shine like eco-emeralds in a sapphire sea. Be one of the privileged few to say that they have traveled to this spectacular region.

Day 1 — Dunedin (South Island), New Zealand

Clinging to the walls of the natural amphitheater at the west end of Otago Harbor, the South Island's second-largest city is enriched with inspiring nearby seascapes and wildlife. Because Dunedin is a university town, floods of students give the city a vitality far greater than its population of 122,000 might suggest.

Day 2 — Stewart Island

Stewart Island is home to New Zealand's newest national park, Rakiura National Park. The third and most southerly of New Zealand's main islands, Stewart Island is separated from the South Island by the 15 mi (24 km) Foveaux Strait. Its original Māori name, Te Punga O Te Waka a Maui, means "the anchor stone of Maui's canoe." Māori mythology says the island's landmass held the god Maui's canoe secure while he and his crew raised the great fish—the North Island.

Day 3 — Cruising Milford Sound

New Zealand fiord country along with Fiordland National Park is one of New Zealand's premier attractions. Incredibly beautiful, wild and remote, the region is an intriguing combination of rugged mountain ranges, dense rainforest, solitary alpine lakes, sparkling rivers and splashing waterfalls. Much of Fiordland is virtually unexplored wilderness and still the habitat of rare birds. As the ship cruises the beautiful Doubtful, Dusky and Milford Sounds, experience the majestic fiordland of South Island's western coast.

Day 4 — Cruising Dusky Sound

Despite being discovered by Cook more than 240 years ago, Dusky Sound is one of the few truly untouched destinations left on earth. Found on the southwest corner of New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park, Dusky Sound has the auspicious title of “titanic mason” given to it by the Maoris, as no other explanation seems to fit; it is almost impossible to comprehend the sheer breadth of geological events that created this seemingly perfect sculpture, as the sheer cliffs that rise vertically upward from the ocean dwarf the ship.

Days 5 & 6 — At Sea

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge or writing home to your loved ones, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Day 15 — Dunedin (South Island), New Zealand

Clinging to the walls of the natural amphitheater at the west end of Otago Harbor, the South Island's second-largest city is enriched with inspiring nearby seascapes and wildlife. Because Dunedin is a university town, floods of students give the city a vitality far greater than its population of 122,000 might suggest.
