Guam is blessed with spectacular natural beauty and a rich cultural history. Apra Harbor is a deep-water port located on the western side of the island near the Mariana Islands and the Mariana Trench, which is the deepest part of the earth’s oceans, and the deepest location of the earth itself. The port serves both as a U.S. naval station and Guam’s main commercial port. The harbour, formed by the Orote Peninsula to the south and Cabras Island in the north, is considered to be one of the best natural ports in the Pacific.
The Northern Mariana Islands are a chain of 15 tropical islands in the western Pacific Ocean, about 120 miles (193 km) north of Guam. At 12 miles in length and 5 miles wide (19 x 8 km), Saipan is the largest of the 15 islands, and site of the CNMI capital. Settlement of Saipan and its neighbouring islands occurred circa 2000 BC by the Chamorro people who arrived via similar routes as their cousins in Guam. Ferdinand Magellan first sighted the Mariana Islands in March 1521 and claimed “Las Islas de las Velas Latinas” for Spain.
Among the 15 islands of the Northern Marianas, Pagan Island consists of two stratovolcanoes joined by a strip of land that is less than 600 meters (2,000 feet) across at its narrowest point. The island was completely evacuated in 1981 when a large eruption forced the small Micronesian community to relocate to Saipan. Pagan, the northern volcano, is still active, and one of the more recent lava-flows has come close to the small former settlement on the west coast.
Three small elongated islands up to 2.3 km (1.4 miles) in length are all that remains of Maug volcano. The islands form the northern, western, and eastern rims of Maug’s largely submerged caldera. The highest point reaches 227 meters (745 feet) above sea level and the caldera has an average submarine depth of about 200 meters (656 feet). The natural harbor contains a twin-peaked central lava dome that rises up from the seafloor to within a few fathoms of the surface. This perfect natural harbour often shelters dolphins near the southern entrance.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
The remote Bonin Islands are known in Japan as the Ogasawara Islands. This archipelago has earned the nickname, “Galapagos of the Orient” and was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2011 for the unique plant and animal species that have evolved here. Chichijima, the “father island,” is the largest in the Ogasawara family of islands and yet another fantastic avian destination with several endemic species. Minamijima, a small uplifted coral island just south of the town, has a much photographed natural stone arch reflected in the small turquoise blue lagoon.
The name Torishima translates to “Bird Island” and is a fitting name for this stark, uninhabited volcanic island that Japan has declared a Bird Sanctuary, Natural Monument and National Wildlife Protection Area. Located in the Izu Islands chain about 600 kilometers (370 miles) due south of Tokyo, Torishima is home to about 1500 mature Short-tailed Albatrosses. This rare species is known to breed on only four islands in the North Pacific, with close to 80% nesting on the volcanic ash slopes of Torishima.

So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Yakushima is a round-shaped subtropical island off the southern coast of Kyushu island and part of Kagoshima prefecture. One fifth of this island is designated a Natural World Heritage Site in 1993, and it is covered by an extensive cedar forest that contains some of Japan’s oldest living trees. The symbol of Yakushima is called Yaku-Sugi, meaning Japanese cedar, which is only used for cedar trees over 1,000 years old. The oldest Yaku-Sugi is considered to be more than 7,000 years old.

Moji used to be an important international trading port with a number of well-preserved Western buildings. Several of these historic buildings can be seen along the attractive waterfront. Southwest of Moji , and part of the same city, is Kokura, the financial and business capital of the area. Kokura’s landmark is its castle, which has been beautifully restored. The remarkable garden located next to the main castle is not too far from the Manga Museum. South of Moji is the Hiraodai Limestone Plateau, Japan’s most representative karst plateau.
History buffs will want to write home Hiroshima. Despite being devastated in 1945, this Japanese city is known to all for its commitment peace – its ruin on the 6th August 1945 led to the end of the war and today, the Peace Memorial (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) , is a constant reminder of the destruction that war brings. A walk in the leafy boulevards of Peace Memorial Park brings quiet contemplation. The Flames of Peace – set in the park’s central feature pond – burn brightly and will continue to do so until all the nuclear bombs I the world have been destroyed.

The small island of Miyajima (“The Shrine Island”) is known for the Floating Torii Gate, which is one of “The Three Most Beautiful Views” of Japan. Built in the water, the Torii Gate leads to the Itsukushima Shrine and at high tide it seems to float. The Torii Gate is one of the most photographed sites in all of Japan. There are many more shrines and paths on Miyajima that are inviting to walk. Mount Misen has a cable car leading partly up to the top with nice views and wild monkeys and deer roaming the trails.
Okayama is an important transportation hub and one of the largest cities of the Chugoku Region. It is famous because it has one of Japan’s most significant gardens. Although the “Korakuen” Garden was severely damaged by bombs in WWII, the descriptions and paintings from the Edo period permitted an exact reconstruction. It is one of the “Three Gardens of Japan” and has been designated a “Special Scenic Location”. Known formerly as the centre of rice-distribution in the Okayama area, many old warehouses next to the preserved canal have been converted into museums, boutiques and cafes.
Located on the calm waters of the Inland Sea, Kobe has served as an important port town for hundreds of years. It was one of the first harbours to accept foreign traders in 1868 when Japan was just emerging from its centuries of isolation. What followed was a surge of Western trade and exports. Today, Kobe is quite multicultural, with expatriates from 98 different nations in residence, providing a cultural diversity most easily visible in restaurants serving every kind of cuisine, including the now world famous Kobe beef.

puntos esenciales del viaje

Starting in Guam, Silver Explorer will sail through the Northern Marianas and Japan’s southern islands to finally reach Kobe. This nature-laden voyage will lead you from active volcanoes to tranquil gardens, and will also shed light on the history of the final stages of World War II in the Pacific. See UNESCO World Heritage Sites and others that are considered among the most famous views or sites in Japan. Visit Japan’s “Galapagos of the East” around Chichi-Jima and pay your respects to World War II's sombre history at the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima. Visit one of Japan’s three famous gardens, see Kokura’s landmark castle, and photograph the scarlet “floating” Torii gate on this sweeping journey by sea. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of these locations from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas –
The Northern Mariana Islands are a chain of tropical islands in the western Pacific Ocean, and Saipan is the largest of the Marianas. The area is a wealth of World War II sites, such as the Last Command Post, where Japanese troops made their final stand against the invading US forces. Nature lovers may spot some of the endemic bird species, including the Mariana Fruit Dove and the endangered Mariana Moorhen, Mariana Swiftlet and Nightingale Reed-warbler.

Maug Islands, Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas –
Maug is made up of three small elongated islands that mark the outer rims of its largely submerged 2.5-km-wide caldera (the cauldron-like depression formed by a volcano). It is not unusual to spot dolphins at the southern entrance of this beautiful harbour created by the caldera, as well as over a dozen species of seabirds, shore birds and even land birds.

Chichi-Jima, Ogasawara Islands, Japan –
The Ogasawara Islands have earned the nickname “Galapagos of the Orient” for the unique plant and animal species that have evolved here, and as such is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The “father island,” is the largest in the Ogasawara family and another fantastic avian destination. Minamijima has a much-photographed natural stone arch reflected in a small turquoise blue lagoon.

Yakushima, Japan –
Yakushima was named Japan’s first UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993, and is famous in botanical circles for its many dwarf plants, which have evolved to grow smaller than their mainland cousins. Yakusugi Land is a nature park populated by a number of the island’s ancient cedar trees, including the Buddhasugi, a 2500-year-old cedar.

Hiroshima and Miyajima, Japan –
Pay your respects at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in central Hiroshima. This was Ground Zero for the Atomic Bomb dropped on August 6, 1945. The Peace Memorial Museum surveys the history of Hiroshima and the advent of the nuclear bomb. The nearby small island of Miyajima (“The Shrine Island”) is home to the Floating Torii Gate. Built in the water, the Torii Gate leads to the Itsukushima Shrine and at high tide it seems to float.

Okayama, Japan –
Okayama is home to the renowned Koraku-en Garden. Although severely damaged by bombs in WWII, the descriptions and paintings from the Edo period permitted an exact reconstruction to its original, elegant state. This rebuild has earned the site the designation of “Special Scenic Location.” Okayama is also home to the Ohara Museum, the first Japanese museum to permanently exhibit western art.

Cultural Highlights:

• Stand at Hiroshima Ground Zero and experience the sombre history of this and other crucial World War II sites.
• Step lightly through Japanese gardens in multiple locations, world-renowned for their unique elegance and design.

Wildlife Watch List:

• Birds: Bridled and Golden White-eye, White-throated Ground Dove and Mariana Fruit Dove, Mariana Moorhen, Mariana Swiftlet, Nightingale Reed-warbler, Micronesian Megapode, Micronesian Starling, White-collared Kingfisher, Short-tailed Albatross
• Bottlenose and spinner dolphins
• Marianas fruit bat, coconut crab, Yaku monkey, Yaku deer
• Sperm whales, green sea turtles
