Zegrahm Expeditions Offering Cruises to Micronesia


Seattle, WA –  In the spring of  2013 Zegrahm Expeditions is offering 2 expeditions to destinations in Melanesia and Micronesia.

Zegrahm is a leader in small-ship cruising and overland adventures.

Expedition highlights include seeking out over 800 species of birds, full days spent in the water searching for marine-life, observing the Baining tribe’s traditional fire-dancing, and witnessing a unique form of bungee-jumping on Pentecost Island, each expedition offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

The expedition leader for both journeys, Mike Moore, recently spoke on ZegrahmLIVE! about the differences between the voyages and what adventurers can expect. Having lived in the highlands of Papua New Guinea earlier in his career, Moore has a vast knowledge of the region and knows that reaching some of the islands is near impossible if traveling independently.

“Each of our Melanesia and Micronesia expeditions offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences,” stated Edwin Blythe, President of Zegrahm Expeditions. “Mike Moore said it best with, ‘You simply can’t get there from here, but Zegrahm can get you there.’”
