April 7 to 22, 2020

Travel with two faculty leaders, Rob Dunbar and Bill Durham, '71, as we sail among the Maluku Islands and the 1,500 islands of the extraordinarily biodiverse Raja Ampat archipelago off New Guinea, home to more than 75 percent of the earth's coral and fish species.

Easy rider. Cruise aboard the intimate, nimble, state-of-the-art excursion vessel, Coral Discoverer, enjoying quick and easy access into and out of Indonesian waters via the ship's hydraulic lifts. Tropical treasures. Snorkel, dive or use our ship's glass-bottom boat to view amazing marine life that dwells amid colorful coral in the reefs. Paradise found. Stop at the tiny Lucipara Islands, an exquisite, isolated group of islands and atolls in the middle of the Banda Sea.
