Itinerary

We'll meet you at the airport this afternoon before you are welcomed aboard your expedition ship. A relaxed dinner this evening allows you the chance to meet your fellow travellers and sets the tone for the next six nights on board. Stay Six Nights:MS Caledonian Sky (D)

There's promise of turquoise waters today as your ship arrives in the Buccaneer Archipelago, home to more than 800 islands. Cruise to Adele Island and join your expedition team member for an exploration of this remote coastal area by Zodiac. The island is surrounded by Adele Reef, teeming with an array of coral and marine life, including reef sharks and stingrays. (B/L/D)

Today your ship cruises through to Talbot Bay, known for its epic 12-metre tides that create an astonishing natural spectacle, the Horizontal Falls. Here, enjoy a Signature Experience. The adventure continues as you jump aboard your Zodiac vessel for an exploration of Cyclone Creek. See dramatic folding in the rock formations as you navigate through the creek, accompanied by your expedition team member. It is here you'll experience your first Signature Experience. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • Subject to tidal conditions, set out on a thrilling ride through the falls aboard a high-powered fast boat. Hold on tight as your boat skims across Talbot Bay to the mouth of the falls before making its way through the churning waters.

Start your day with a phenomenal Signature Experience. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • Excitement builds this morning as you join your expedition team for an in-depth exploration of Montgomery Reef by Zodiac. Witness the reef rise out of the ocean as the tidal waters cascade rapidly into the surrounding channels. Keep an eye out for unique bird life and turtles which may pop their heads up from time to time.

Discover Bigge Island today, known for its Indigenous rock art created by the Wunambal people. During your time here, take in a Signature Experience. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • In caves throughout the island, see examples of first-contact art depicting European tall ships dating from the 15th to 18th century. Having been repainted annually for the past 5,000 years, it is thought to be the oldest continuous sacred painting tradition on the planet.

Today your ship will stop in Freshwater Cove, located on the mainland adjacent to Montgomery Reef. Step ashore and take a picturesque walk to an ancient Wandjina rock art site, hidden in the caves of this ancient landscape. When available, you'll be joined by a local Indigenous guide. (B/L/D)

Arriving into Broome this morning means it's time to say goodbye to your ship and to be transferred to the airport. (B)
