Itinerary

Expand All
1 Arrive Darwin
Upon arrival, be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure. Stay Four Nights: Darwin, Mantra on the Esplanade
2 Darwin
After a relaxing morning, take a City Sights tour visiting Darwin's iconic sights. (B)
3 Kakadu National Park
Today we travel to Kakadu National Park. Learn about the pristine ecosystem and discover the billabongs and birdlife of this World Heritage-listed region. (B/L)
4 Darwin
At your leisure visit Crocosaurus Cove to see these unique creatures up close. Visit Darwin's Royal Flying Doctor Service, enjoy the heroic tales of the birth and growth of the RFDS. (B)
5 Darwin, Embark Cruise
This morning, you will transfer to the wharf to board your ship. Set sail and cross the vast Cambridge Gulf before journeying into the pristine blue Western Australian waters. Meet your friendly crew and fellow travellers at the Captain's Welcome Drinks while you sail amongst stunning scenery. Stay 10 Nights: Coral Adventurer (B/L/D)
6 King George River, Tranquil Bay
Jump aboard the Explorer and discover rugged gorges carved by the force of the mighty King George River. Later, explore the pristine beach and luscious green landscape at Tranquil Bay. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: Board a Zodiac and cruise to the base of magnificent King George Falls. Towering 80 metres above the water and reminiscent of an outdoor cathedral, the twin falls are one of the Kimberley's most spectacular attractions.
7 Vansittart Bay, Jar Island
View the wreckage of the US Air Force DC3 plane that crashed at Vansittart Bay during World War II in 1945. The devastating impact claimed six lives. Later, you'll see Jar Island and its abundance of high quality and ancient Bradshaw (Gwion Gwion) paintings etched into the alcoves and cave walls. (B/L/D)
8 Winyalken Bay
After anchoring in Winyalken Bay, travel ashore and explore the maze of natural sandstone caves of Hathaway's Hideaway. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: This evening, pull up a chair and watch as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean while you savour a delicious gourmet Australian beach barbecue.
9 Prince Frederick Harbour
Visit Prince Frederick Harbour, located at the southern end of York Sound. Composed of ancient mangroves and monsoon rainforests, this region is a wonderland of wetland delights. And because of its isolated environment, you'll hopefully come across a rare creature or two basking on the sunny banks. Other critters like white-bellied sea eagles and birds of prey are often seen here among the predators. Head back to your ship in the afternoon. (B/L/D)
10 Prince Regent River, King Cascades, Careening Bay
Cruise the Prince Regent River, named by the crew of the survey vessel, the HMC Mermaid, who were the first Europeans to discover it in 1820. Look out for saltwater crocodiles gliding through the opaque water. Afterwards, enjoy afternoon tea at beautiful Camp Creek while looking out onto panoramic views. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: Admire the King Cascades, a spectacular waterfall that falls in torrents over terraced rock formations.
11 Montgomery Reef, Doubtful Bay
Experience a truly spectacular moment when Montgomery Reef rises out of the ocean as the tide falls. Stretching over 300 square kilometres across the Indian Ocean, witness the miniature waterfalls cascade down the exposed reef walls in all directions, creating an awe-inspiring effect. Discover the reef's diverse marine life including turtles, manta rays and reef sharks. Later, make sure to have your camera at the ready as you cruise through the dramatic and rugged sea cliffs at Doubtful Bay. (B/L/D)
12 Kuri Bay, Raft Point, Ruby Falls
Cruise Kuri Bay, home of the south sea pearl industry. Board the Explorer and travel to striking Raft Point, where you will have the opportunity to see ancient Wandjina rock art alongside some of the Kimberley's most well-preserved Bradshaw (Gwion Gwion) paintings. Later, explore Red Cone Creek and visit the serene Ruby Falls. (B/L/D)
13 Buccaneer Archipelago, Talbot Bay, Horizontal Falls
Travel through the Buccaneer Archipelago, a group of over 800 islands strewn across the azure waters of the Timor Sea. Your skilled captain navigates smoothly through the hidden whirlpools, unmarked rocks and reefs caused by the largest tides in the Southern Hemisphere. The islands' rocks are over two billion years old, still in pristine condition due to the isolation and minimal tourism of the area. We head towards Talbot Bay and see the majestic Horizontal Falls. Later, explore the stunning white sands at Silica Beach. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: Board a Zodiac for a ride through Horizontal falls. When the 12-metre tide turns, strong currents rush through the two narrow coastal gorges, creating a cascading effect.
14 Lacepede Islands
Cruise to the Lacepede Islands (subject to conditions), a group of four islands home to an abundance of marine birds. The islands support over one percent of the world population of Lesser Frigatebirds and Roseate Terns. Because of this the islands are considered an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International. Tonight, say goodbye to your fellow travellers and friendly crew while you enjoy Captain's Farewell Drinks. (B/L/D)
