2023 Chatham Islands Excursions

2023 Chatham Islands Excursions

Since 2002 these excursions to the Chatham Islands has been offered to, and enjoyed by, many Friends of Te Papa. Touring with Hamish and Chris is a rare opportunity to visit the Chathams in a safe and convivial context. The plan is to visit Chatham and Pitt Island, sea and air conditions permitting.

Anyone is welcome – you don’t have to be a geologist, a Friend of Te Papa, or a citizen of Zealandia. They are about much more than natural science. You will explore Chatham Islands history, culture and cuisine. It is a must do, if you have not yet done it!

Two trips:

Trip 1: Friday 25 August to Wednesday 30 August.

Trip 2: Friday 1 September to Wednesday 6 September.

Air travel ex-Wellington: with Air Chathams
Accommodation: Hotel Chatham, Waitangi, Chatham Island

Capped at 20 people each, the trips are all-embracing in terms of experiencing the Chathams.

However, a certain level of fitness is required: you must be able to negotiate a wire fence in less than 20 seconds. Some people get hung up on this self-fitness test. To avoid this, attempt wire fences only in the presence of an adult.
