#expeditioncruising



Sea Kayak voyages to the earth’s extremes feature in Southern Sea Ventures newly released 2015 program. Already paddling to most corners of the globe, the sea kayaking specialists have added five new trips to their line up of active adventure experiences. Led by expert guides with strong local insights, first timers and experienced paddlers alike can choose from 30 tropical, Mediterranean, Indonesian, European, Polar and Sub-antarctic itineraries in four distinct styles - camping, hotel, ship and yacht based kayak trips.

The new 10 day paddling trip to Indonesia, Raja Ampat Kayak and Snorkeling, explores some of the world’s most spectacular marine habitats. A luxuriously appointed sailing vessel provides the floating home base for a kayak discovery of the archipelago’s pristine coral, exotic birdlife and beautiful beaches. This is a ‘dream list’ trip for paddlers, snorkelers and scuba adventurers and offered in Nov /Dec 2015. Priced from AU $5250.

A heady cocktail of cuisine, culture and cardio, the new nine day Italian Riviera & Cinque Terre Kayak/ Walk in October 2015 is the perfect way to experience the stunning sea vistas and picturesque jumble of colourful fishing villages of the Cinque Terre. Staying in small family run hotels and living ‘la dolce vita’ is a genuine Italian immersion. Cost is Euros 2375.



Croatia’s limestone islands, quaint fishing villages, vineyards and medieval monasteries are just some of the hidden treasures revealed on the 14 day (12 days kayaking) Croatia to Montenegro Kayak/Sail Odyssey. The promise of a comfy bed and a hot shower after a day’s paddling adds to the appeal of a yacht and kayak trip combo. Priced from AU $4025 in Sept, Oct 2015. The shorter, but packed full of surprises 10 day (seven days kayaking, one day hiking) North Dalmatia Kayak/Sail Adventure in June, is priced from AU $2925. For those hooked on adventure, the Croatia Explorer trip will deliver the ultimate challenge fix. Paddling between eight islands, each with wildly different landscapes and camping in tents on remote beaches, this kayak experience with an edge is priced at AU $2175.

Kayaking in the polar regions is a humbling and lifetime experience. Wildlife, wilderness and ice are featured in the most diverse selection of Arctic and Antarctic voyages ever offered by Southern Sea Ventures. Prices depend on the length of the voyage and the berth chosen. Around the other side of the globe, curious sea kayakers can discover the rich biodiversity of the sub Antarctic Islands of New Zealand and Australia, including The Snares, Auckland, Macquarie, and Campbell Islands. In Far East Russia kayaking is still one of the last frontiers of adventure travel, with ribbon seals, stellar sea lions and fur seals providing company for paddlers.

The much-loved tropical paddling trips in Fiji, Panama, Tonga, Australia and Melanesia deliver paddling in peaceful and uncrowded waters. The eight European itineraries include paddling along the rugged headlands and secluded coves of Turkey and dramatic scenery of Scotland and Sweden’s west coast.
