Highlights of this cruise:

Alotau
Alotau is the capital of the Milne Bay Province, which lies at the most south-eastern tip of PNG. It is a very scenic town on the north shore of Milne Bay. It is a quiet, friendly provincial town, and operates successfully as a scuba diving base.

Ecotourism is being developed here focusing on the rainforest, trekking, bird watching, bat caving, fishing, diving, snorkelling, war sites, surfing and cultural sites of interest. The province has the richest marine biodiversity in the world, which is why so many divers come to the area. There are orchids, marsupials, birds of paradise, mountains, islands, rainforest, waterfalls, hot springs and skull caves as well as a fascinating local history.

Rabaul
Rabaul is a township in East New Britain province, Papua New Guinea. The town was the provincial capital and most important settlement in the province until it was destroyed in 1994 by falling ash of a volcanic eruption. After the eruption the capital was moved to Kokopo, about 20 kilometres away. Rabaul is continually threatened by volcanic activity due to being built on the edge of Rabaul caldera, a flooded caldera of a large volcano.

Rabaul lies on the Gazelle Peninsula and vies with Madang for the title of the most beautiful town in Papua New Guinea. Spread out around the rim of Simpson Harbour, Rabaul is a well laid out town with all facilities within walking distance. It has a busy market, selling fresh produce, local cigars and betel nut, is located on the main road from Tokua Airport near Supabake Bakery. At the waterfront are boats for travel to the outer islands or for a spot of fishing.

As a tourist destination Rabaul is popular for SCUBA diving, snorkelling sites and its spectacular harbour. Visitors will find a treasure trove of World War 2 relics, tunnels and caverns to explore within driving distance of Rabaul.
