3 Kakadu National Park
Today 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. Later on, visit Darwin's Royal Flying Doctor Service museum, and learn about the RFDS during the bombing of Darwin. Take the rest of the evening to yourself and prepare to embark on your cruise tomorrow. (B)
5 Darwin, Embark Cruise
This morning, you will transfer to the wharf to board your ship. Meet your friendly crew at the Captain's Welcome Drinks while you sail among stunning scenery. Take it all in from the ship's deck, or simply from your stateroom. Stay 10 Nights: aboard the Coral Adventurer (B/L/D)
6 King George River, Tranquil Bay
Jump aboard an Xplorer and discover rugged gorges carved by the force of the mighty King George River. Towering 80 metres above the water and reminiscent of an outdoor cathedral, King George Falls is one of the Kimberley's most spectacular attractions. 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.
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 1942. 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. Many of these images show figures with elegant clothing or ornaments. (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: Pull up a chair and watch as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, all the while savouring delicious canapes and drinks.
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 wildlife such as 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. Afterwards, spend time at leisure wandering Careening Bay. Then, with a knowledgeable guide, you'll journey to the site of the iconic boab tree engraved with ‘HMC Mermaid 1820', miraculously visible after 200 years. Learn about the ship and crew who left their mark in the tree before heading back to your ship. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: Admire the King Cascades, a spectacular waterfall that falls in torrents over terraced rock formations. Look out for saltwater crocodiles gliding through the opaque water.
11 Montgomery Reef
Experience a truly spectacular moment when Montgomery Reef rises out of the ocean as the tide falls. It stretches over 300 square kilometres across the Indian Ocean and you'll 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, sea snakes and reef sharks. (B/L/D)
12 Doubtful Bay, Kuri Bay, Raft Point, Ruby Falls
Make sure to have your camera at the ready as you cruise through the dramatic and rugged sea cliffs at Doubtful Bay. After, cruise Kuri Bay, home of the south sea pearl industry. Board an Xplorer 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. When the 12-metre tide turns, strong currents rush through the two narrow coastal gorges, creating a cascading effect. Later, enjoy sunset drinks overlooking the otherworldly rock formations at Nares Point. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: Board a Zodiac for a ride through Horizontal Falls.
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)
15 Disembark Cruise, Depart Broome
After breakfast, disembark the ship and be transferred to the airport for your onward journey. (B)
