“Yachting with SeaDream Yacht Club in the Mediterranean is an experience unlike any other and we pride ourselves on the ability to intimately transport our guests to some of the world’s most exclusive destinations,” shares Bob Lepisto, president of SeaDream Yacht Club.

SEADREAM YACHT CLUB REVEALS DETAILS ON 2014 EXPEDITION

TO PAPUA NEW GUINEA

MIAMI, June 6, 2013 – Few areas in the world are as exotic and stunning as Papua New Guinea. The land’s vibrant culture is still thriving and its natural beauty makes the territory a true untouched tropical paradise. Embarking from Cairns, Queensland (Australia) Feb. 1, 2014, SeaDream II of the award-winning SeaDream Yacht Club, will set sail on an exclusive voyage led by a team of expedition experts. Visiting a virtually inaccessible part of the world, guests will travel far off traditional cruising routes and venture into areas rarely visited by outsiders.   

“It is simply exhilarating to arrive on a secluded beach by Zodiac boat from SeaDream II and be warmly greeted by a civilization that has remained the same for thousands of years,” shares Pamela Conover, CEO of SeaDream Yacht Club. “Visiting this unspoiled region with our collection of experts promises an unforgettable and rewarding experience.”

Sailing from Australia’s northwest coastal city of Cairns on Feb. 1 and arriving in Bali (Benoa) on Feb. 15, 2014, ports of call and remote harbors include Alotau, Milne Bay; Kitava, Trobriand Islands; Tami Island; Sepik River and Watam Village; Jayapura; Banda Neira; Moluccas; Larantuka; and Komodo Island. 

Calling the 112-guest mega-yacht SeaDream II home, guests will be transported by a fleet of nimble, go-anywhere Zodiacs, landing directly on the beaches of these coastal villages to begin exploration. An added bonus will be professional wildlife photographer Sue Flood onboard, documenting the expedition and sharing tips for taking the perfect shot.

Highlights and shore excursion options include:

  • Introduction to Papua New Guinea culture in Alotau in the Milne Bay Province, meeting charming locals and touring the coast. Travelers will have the option to venture into the jungle to revisit a key World War II site. For those interested in natural history, guides will lead guests on hikes and bird watching tours from the beach.
  • Exploring the Trobriand Islands, one of the most culturally intact destinations in Papua New Guinea. Guests landing ashore will experience colorful and powerful performances of young warriors and local maidens dancing directly on the beach before touring the gardens and thatched roof homes of the villagers. The day will conclude with a beachside barbecue in this unspoiled paradise.    
  • Discovering the tiny islands of Tami, comprised of uplifted coral atolls less than a kilometer in length. Locals will greet guests with indigenous dances and tours of their villages, observing traditions dating back thousands of years.
  • Visiting the mighty Sepik River, the longest in Papua New Guinea, which is home to the villages of Watam and Kopar along its delta. Villagers will display local customs and dances, allowing a direct look back in time to a culture that measures its existence in thousands of years.

Fully inclusive yachting fares begin at $9,999, based on double occupancy. The SeaDream II will be sailing a series of 17 voyages in Asia starting Oct. 2013 through April 2014. Itineraries include Myanmar, Thailand, India, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Northern Australia and Malaysia.  For inquiries, contact a travel professional or SeaDream Yacht Club at 1-800-707-4911 or visit www.seadream.com.

MIAMI, May 20, 2013 – Myanmar (Burma), Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand conjure up exotic images of Asia and now exploring these destinations on a casually elegant mega-yacht is possible before the end of the year. SeaDream Yacht Club’s award-winning SeaDream II will be visiting secluded ports and small harbors on two 13-day itineraries, “Mystic Malaysia & Myanmar”  departing from Singapore Nov. 25,  and “Mystic Myanmar & Malaysia” beginning Dec. 8 in Phuket, Thailand. A highlight of both itineraries will be two full days to explore Yangon, Myanmar, with expert guides.

“So much of the Asian continent remains undiscovered and relatively unknown by the most seasoned of travelers,” shares Pamela Conover, CEO of SeaDream Yacht Club. “These itineraries visit many remote locales accessible only by yacht, paired with the highly personalized and anticipatory service of the SeaDream II.”

Myanmar, a “bucket list” destination of well-traveled adventurers, is known for its enchanting Buddhist culture and high-topped monuments including the Shwedagon Pagoda. Ports of call in Myanmar include Yangon, Kyun Philar and Pila Kyun Islands in the Mergui Archipelago. SeaDream has arranged exclusive land adventures to explore ancient Bagan. Additional ports include Pulau Pangkor and Pulau Langkawi, Malaysia; Ko Phi Phi, Patong Beach, Phuket, Similian Islands, Ko Racha Yai, Ko Lanta Yai, Thailand; and the Republic of Singapore.

Highlights and shore excursion options include: 

  • Overnight, two-day stay in Yangon, Myanmar, site of the Shwedagon Pagoda. Optional over night excursion by air to Bagan, a magical valley covered with 2,000 pagodas and temples dating back more than 1,500 years.
  • Discovering the pristine waters, untouched nature and nomadic Moken (the world’s last sea gypsies) of the Mergui Archipelago’s 800+ islands.
  • Experiencing a gourmet beach BBQ and SeaDream’s Signature Champagne and Caviar Splash on the incredibly soft white sands and crystalline clear waters of Ko Lanta Yai or Ko Rang Yai islands of Thailand.
  • Diving among manta rays and whale sharks in the Andaman Sea, one of the world’s most beautiful reefs or snorkeling in renowned Similan Island National Park.
  • Exploring Langkawi’s mangrove forests by boat, spotting majestic eagles diving for fish, extraordinary rock formations, and an authentic “bat cave” thousands call home.   
  • Golfing at Blue Canyon Country Club, one of the most prestigious courses in Asia, offering beautiful scenery among challenging bunkers and hazards.

The only member of the Thai Spa Association at sea, the SeaDream Spa will deliver exclusive therapies reflective of the region and provide an unmatched ratio of therapists to guests.
