The expedition on the 112-guest mega-yacht SeaDream II will include: introduction to Papa New Guinea culture in Alotau in the Milne Bay Province, meeting locals and touring the coast, as travelers will have the option to venture into the jungle to revisit a key World War II site; exploring the Trobriand Islands, one of the most culturally intact destinations in Papa New Guinea; discovering the tiny islands of Tami, comprised of uplifted coral atolls less than a kilometer in length; and visiting the Sepik River, the longest in Papua New Guinea, which is home to the villages of Watam and Kopar along its delta.
