New ZealanD-SOUTH pacific luxury SMALL SHIP VOYAGES

Island Escape is a luxurious superyacht experience. In New Zealand we own 20-year permits from the Government to explore the entire World Heritage Fiordland National Park. Virtually isolated with access by sea and helicopter, this region is beyond sensational and often described as the ultimate nature lovers paradise. We voyage north to the world famous Bay of Islands over Christmas and New Year during the NZ summer season.

During the New Zealand winter, we move to the South Pacific where we call Tahiti our home. Small ship voyages are perfect for this tropical paradise, with a casual french influence, first class activities and superb amenities. From Tahiti we venture out to the wider South Pacific with her thousands of gorgeous islands to explore at our comfortable pace and style.

We are evaluating suitable replacement vessels and appreciate your patience. New cruise bookings will open from mid 2019. 

Welcome aboard,

South Pacific

The peoples of Asia and Oceania have travelled the South Pacific since prehistoric times. The Eastern South Pacific was first sighted by Europeans in the early 16th century.

The ocean’s current name was coined by Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan during his circumnavigation of the world in 1521, as he enjoyed favourable winds. He called it Mar Pacífico, which in Portuguese means ‘peaceful sea’.
