Easy to contact by phone or email. Regular correspondence prior to cruise departure. Liked the wallet sent out with info. However, we did not use the lanyards supplied. There is no quick release mechanism to prevent accidental choking if it catches on something. I thought quick release catches were a mandatory safety feature of modern lanyards?"

Chesterfield Islands constitute an archipelago located in the Coral Sea, 550 km west of the northern tip of Grande Terre, the main island of the French overseas country of New Caledonia. The islands are spread over 120 km by 70 km, made up of 11 uninhabited coral sand cays and many reefs, their highest point only 12 m. Some cays are covered with grass, creepers and low trees; others shift with the wind. The islands and barrier reef that surrounds Chesterfield lagoon encompass 3500 sq.km., at an average depth of 50 m. Indeed, the islets are so small they don’t appear on many maps.

The reef complex was named after the ship Chesterfield, commanded by Matthew Bowes Alt, which explored the Coral Sea in the 1790s. Chesterfield and other surrounding reefs have accumulated their fair share of shipwrecks from the 18th to 19th C. The islands were a source of guano and phosphate. Mariners and whalers visited periodically from the 18th C to make ship repairs, collect eggs, fish and turtle meat, and plant coconut trees. The area is a wintering ground for numerous humpback whales and smaller numbers of sperm whales.

All visitors have to do there is see the wildlife, bask under the sun, swim, and dive. Interestingly, Commander Arzur in the French warship Dumont d’Urville surveyed the Chesterfield Reefs and erected a plaque in 1939. A ship by the same name will sail this region for Ponant Yacht Cruses in 2019.
