Chatham Islands, New Zealand Overview
The islands are at about 43°53′S 176°31′W, roughly 800 kilometres (500 mi) east of Christchurch, New Zealand. They cover a total of 966 square kilometres (373 sq mi), almost all of which is in the two main islands.
The islands sit on the Chatham Rise, a large, relatively shallowly submerged part of the Zealandia continent that stretches east from near the South Island. The Chatham Islands, which emerged only within the last four million years, are the only part of the Chatham Rise showing above sea level.
Chatham Island is the antipodes of the French department of Hérault (Languedoc-Roussillon).

One of the many islands that lie off the mainland of New Zealand. With less than 700 inhabitants and a land mass the size of Lake Taupo, there is plenty of empty and untouched space. Take a 2 hour plane ride from the mainland to one of the last frontiers that New Zealand has to offer.
At Sea, En Route to The Chatham Islands, New Zealand
I spent as much time as possible outside, always on the lookout for seabirds and whales. It was windy (note spray) with substantial swells (note I'm holding on and braced on my favorite perch, a box containing sand). En route from the Bounty Islands to the Chathams on The Spirit of Enderby / Professor Khromov.
