Activities aboard a Papua New Guinea Cruise

For yachting enthusiasts, a luxury Papua New Guinea cruise has to be at the top of their bucket list. Papua New Guinea is considered one of the final frontiers of cruising in the South Pacific. This wild country, which is still unexplored in many areas promises adventure and excitement. From the tribal villages in the highlands through to active volcanoes, impressive marine life and phenomenal natural resources, there is no shortage of things to do and see, both on the water and on land.

On land, there are endless trekking opportunities that can be tailored according to your fitness level, there are countless remote virgin white beaches to discover, intriguing traditional ceremonies and rituals to observe, incredible wildlife and birdlife to see, and the craftsmen are fascinating to watch as they work with the same tools as their ancestors used generations before them.

For anyone who has a love of the ocean, there is truly world-class scuba diving and snorkeling to be enjoyed  (see Papua New Guinea Underwater section below).

Explore the Natural Resources of Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is renowned for its rich supply of natural and mineral resources that includes crude oil, natural gas, timber, cocoa, coffee, palm oil, gold, copper, silver, nickel, and cobalt. When chartering el Aleph for a private luxury Papua New Guinea cruise, trips to shore reveal how the villagers farm both cocoa and coffee in the lush highlands by traditional methods. With such rich deposits of precious metals to be found beneath the land of Papua New Guinea, there are also exceptionally skilled gold and silversmiths as well as wood carvers who still work by hand – and are fascinating to watch as they go about their crafts.

Discover Papua New Guinea Underwater

For avid scuba divers and snorkelers, Papua New Guinea is an underwater playground. From migrating whale sharks and huge manta rays through to schools of silvery fish and a kaleidoscopic explosion of reef life – there’s plenty to see when you take a look beneath the surface.

Underwater visibility is excellent throughout the year in Papua New Guinea and the tropical water temperatures make the conditions suitable for all levels. We have full sets of snorkelling equipment available for guests and our comfortable tender is perfect for accessing some of the secret beaches and hidden coves.

For those who wish to scuba dive, we have Nitrox available as well as Poseidon rebreathers and helium for trained rebreather divers. Tanks, weights, and air fills are included in the base charter rate, and although most divers generally prefer to bring their own gear, we can provide a limited quantity of equipment.

Fishing on a Papua New Guinea Cruise

A Papua New Guinea cruise offers exceptional deep sea fishing opportunities and if fishing is of interest to you and your guests we have various options available. We do not fish in marine protected areas but are able to move outside away from marine park reefs into the open seas. Several of our El Aleph crew are keen fishermen, and spear-fishing is allowed also outside of the parks. As well as our modern fishing equipment, it’s also a lot of fun to try the traditional method of fishing with a simple line, hook and bait!
