Silversea Expedition Cruises To Fanning Island

145129428

Fanning Island is a coral atoll that is about 7 miles in diameter. With the exception of the main passage at English Harbor and two small passages only large enough for canoes, the interior lagoon is completely surrounded by the atoll. With only 2,000 residents and no electricity, or indoor plumbing, Fanning Island is about a close as one can get to the proverbial virgin tropical island in paradise. View more

Fanning Island is only 185 miles north of the equator, so it can get very hot if the sun is shining and there is no cloud cover. Hint: wear a high SPF rated waterproof sunscreen and make sure you are completely covered. The ship actually drifts in the open ocean while calling on Fanning Island. The ocean drops in depth quite rapidly once beyond the water's edge of the island making going to anchor impossible. The ship's tenders will operate between the ship and the tender pier at English Harbour. The local natives have created a formidable handicraft marketplace right as you arrive on the island. Numerous tables may be set up with a good assortment of items for sale. There are beaches and the water is very inviting, a walk through the village is certainly a pleasant way to spend the day as well. The people of Fanning are pleasant and you have the opportunity to take a glimpse of life in one of the most remote areas on the planet. There are no organised tours during this call to Fanning Island due to the inability to secure an operation that could meet the requirements of Silversea. This day is for self-exploration.
