Noumea Discovery Travel Company (NDTC) has been operating in Noumea, New Caledonia, since 1984 as an inbound travel agency specializing in the organization of tours for the cruise ship industry as well as inbound tourism in general. We have a team of multilingual and qualified agents who cater to over 120,000 tourists annually.
Noumea Discovery Travel Company is a sister company of Mary-D Enterprises which was set up in 1981 and is one of the leading companies in New Caledonia’s tourism industry. Both companies have the same dedication and principles in offering clients our renowned service with friendly, multilingual and professional staff.
Over the past 35 years, Mary-D has gained a solid reputation for running excellent day tours to Amedee Island, located on the barrier reef 24 kilometers west of Noumea. This regular service transports close to 36,000 visitors annually and has won the Trip Advisor award for the best tourist attraction in New Caledonia for the last four years.
In 2004, thanks to our growing success and experience in the cruise ship market, we at NDTC decided to expand our services to include inbound operations for Global Educational Tours – the largest inbound operator to Noumea for student groups. We are now the leader in that sector.
Today we feel that after 35 years in the tourism industry, 30 years’ experience in cruise ships and 12 years as a Global Educational Tour operator, we have the necessary experience and understanding of the needs and expectations of all clients – whether they are individuals, tour operators or travel agencies. We have therefore once again expanded by offering our ground operation services to the most reputable wholesalers in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, China as well as to private individual and groups, with our new company: Noumea Discovery Inbound.
We currently provide a wide variety of services: airport transfers, reconfirmations of all international flight departures, domestic airline bookings, hotel and tour reservations, car hire, currency exchange, and in particular customized organization of client trips from A to Z, whether they be for private individuals or groups, around New Caledonia including the Loyalty Islands.
All client needs and requests are taken care of as soon as they confirm their trip.
Upon arrival all guests receive a welcome kit including the following:
- Our office telephone numbers and addresses with a map showing the location of our agency in Anse Vata, which is within walking distance of the main hotels in Noumea
- Cellphone contacts of 3 English-speaking staff members for assistance

- Booklet of ‘Things to do in Noumea’
