Calvados Atoll Kayak Expedition

11 Day Trip

Sea Kayak to Panasia

An extraordinary expedition to explore the remote Calvados Atolls hidden in the Louisiades Archipelago. This is a paddle into history where the indigenous people have a subsistence lifestyle trading food, fishing, sailing traditional outriggers and paddling dugouts. Exquisite coral reefs, white sandy beaches  and brilliant azure waters ensure an unforgettable kayak adventure.

The chain of islands are picture perfect with short distances between idyllic campsites nestled on the atolls. The snorkelling is unparalleled with astonishing numbers of fish in the reefs.  Our unique folding kayaks enable us to kayak in this last frontier. Bring your spirit of adventure for a journey of a lifetime.

Note: This is a true expedition and members will be expected to have camping experience and assist in the daily routines necessary to paddle in such a remote area.
