Overview

Hop from island to island to discover the natural wonders of the most beautiful archipelagos in the Pacific and enjoy surprising, unforgettable encounters with the local communities. During a 14-day expedition cruise aboard Le Jacques Cartier, nature and culture are combined to offer you an extraordinary trip.

Departing from Honiara, set sail on an exceptional journey to the heart of remote regions of wild beauty.  

In the Solomon Islands, you will be able to enjoy pleasant moments swimming and snorkelling on Njari Island before you discover the picturesque and colourful atmosphere in the traditional markets on Ghizo Island.

Le Jacques-Cartier will set sail for Papua New Guinea, a fascinating land that is home to no fewer than 700 ethnic groups within a highly diverse yet mainly unexplored ecosystem. You will visit the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, a unique group of islands that are ecologically and geographically part of the Solomon Islands archipelago but not politically part of the islands.

Next, the mysteries of Micronesia will reveal themselves to you. A scattering of islands and atolls, lost in the heart of the northern Pacific, this area is rich in Second World War history. The shores of Chuuk Lagoon and Pulap Island still retain traces of a tragic past and a declared Underwater Military Museum is the resting place of wrecks from Japan's military air and sea fleets.

Micronesia consists of a sprinkling of islands and atolls that benefit from an exceptional environment. Its incredibly rich underwater world promises unforgettable dives. On land, the beaches of white sand, the coconut trees and the villages with deep-rooted traditions reveal their charms, like the Ifalik and Gaferut atolls.

Your cruise will end in Guam, the biggest volcanic island of the Mariana Islands.
