new opportunities of discovery around the shores of
New Zealand.

Setting a new standard for discovery travel in New Zealand, Heritage Explorer combines the ultimate in comfort with unique itineraries and a personalised experience with a maximum of just 18 guests on board.

Heritage Explorer is a 30-metre, 4-deck New Zealand

Cutting a striking profile in the water, Heritage Explorer
boasts a considered design that’s both ahead of its

comfort, spaciousness and agility allowing her to
explore the best of New Zealand’s backyard while
introducing new levels of bespoke comfort.

proud history as ambassadors for conservation,
pioneers of discovery, and leaders in expedition travel
to the world’s best-kept secrets. Heritage Expeditions
pioneered conservation-driven, authentic small ship
expedition cruising in 1984 and has been sharing
some of the most wild, least-explored and biologically
rich regions on the planet with small numbers of
guests ever since.
