Heritage Explorer is a 30-meter, 4-deck New Zealand flagged vessel built-in 2004 by the renowned wooden boat building family Carey's Boatyard in Picton. It features a contemporary wood-finished interior, 10 well-appointed cabins across three decks, a dining room boasting spectacular 180-degree panoramas and theatre capabilities; a lounge and bar featuring a flight of inclusive regional New Zealand wines, beers, and spirits; and a well-stocked local library. Outside, guests can enjoy plenty of covered space on the Bridge Deck or adjourn to the Sun Deck perfect for wildlife spotting, sunrises, and sunsets, or simply enjoying watching your voyage unfold. Kayaks and fishing equipment are available for use during the voyage, while two tenders allow for deeper exploration and the unforgettable wildlife encounters synonymous with all Heritage Expeditions adventures.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
