View the wreckage of the US Air Force DC3 plane that crashed at Vansittart Bay during World War II in 1942.

18 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)
19 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)
