There’s always a doctor on board and quality, fresh food prepared with locally sourced ingredients served with all-inclusive beer, wine and soft drinks.

This adventure is an opportunity to explore the remote Kimberley region in Western Australia and experience some of the most expansive and magnificent landscapes on Earth.

The Coral Adventurer

Wake up on board and ready to hopefully spot pods of whales who will be preparing for the warmer southern months by migrating south as you cruise through the water surrounding The Lacepede island group, which is a Class A nature reserve.

The next day it is time to explore The Horizontal Falls. These unique visions are a stunning natural beauty created when the ocean thunders through a narrow gorge in the McLarty Ranges. You’ll learn exactly how this happens and then take in the dazzling Buccaneer Archipelago.

These ancient rock formations are a fantastic opportunity for budding photographers to capture the stunning beauty of natural Australia. Then keep your camera out to capture photos of new friends with a spectacular view and to enjoy sunset drinks at Nares Point.

Enjoy the natural beauty of Horizontal Falls

There’s still a whole week of fun ahead including seeing important sites such as the ancient Wandjina rock art galleries. Also, experience magical moments such as swimming in a freshwater swimming hole overlooking a waterfall. Nature fanatics will love seeing birds flying overhead, spotting turtles, native animals, white-bellied sea eagles or other birds of prey, mangrove crabs, other marine life, monsoon rainforests and even crocodiles.

Spectacular views are only surpassed by the incredible experiences you’ll have when you explore this stunning part of Australia with ease. Savour the serenity of this ancient landscape while taking in remarkable visions such as the Jar Island Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) rock art galleries which are estimated to be around 15,000 years old and the well-preserved wreckage of a US Air Force C-53 Skytrooper aircraft.

Of course, there’s also the awe-inspiring images of the magnificent King Cascade with its terraced waterfall and surrounding nature and the ochre red cliffs where the King George River ends will stay with you forever.

There is limited availability to secure an Explorer Deck Balcony stateroom before the trip is sold out. Comfortably furnished with a junior king or twin bed and private balcony these 21.4 sqm rooms are a great choice for a once in a lifetime experience.
