Cruises from Campbell Island
Campbell Island lies 600 km due south of New Zealand, the most southerly of NZ’s subantarctic islands. This uninhabited UNESCO World Heritage site is surrounded by numerous stacks, rocks and islets. The island is mountainous, rising to 569 metres in the south. It lies on the Campbell Plateau, a submerged portion of the New Zealand continental landmass, and the largest portion of submarine continental crust in the world.
A long fjord, Perseverance Harbour, named in 1810 after the sealing brig of its discoverer, nearly bisects it - exiting to the sea on the east coast.
