Dear friends:

Next Wednesday, February 8, my colleague, Barry Lyon, and I will host a free webinar in which we’ll discuss VENT’s upcoming fall cruise to the South Pacific: Faces of Polynesia: Fiji to Tahiti, October 22–November 7, 2017.

For this special trip, we’ll travel aboard the beautiful Caledonian Sky, voyaging through remote Central Polynesia, island-hopping our way through a tropical paradise filled with volcanic islands, spectacular reefs, coral atolls, picture-perfect beaches, and waters of a thousand shades of blue. Our travels will take us to some of the most alluring tropical islands in the world including Fiji, Tonga, Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Moorea among many others.

Designed for birders and non-birders alike, this multi-themed program offers birding excursions to see specialty species of the South Pacific including Blue-crowned and Collared lorikeets, Orange Dove, Cook Island Fruit-Dove, Pacific Kingfisher, and Blue-crested Flycatcher, in addition to a wonderful diversity of seabirds; opportunities to snorkel in some of the world’s greatest tropical reef systems; incredible tropical scenery; and time to experience the rich traditions of Polynesian culture. This trip will be led by VENT leader, Brian Gibbons, who guided our 2015 departure.

This departure is part of VENT’s collaborative cruise program with trusted travel partner, Zegrahm Expeditions. Just announced for this program: register now and receive an air credit worth up to $1,000!
