7 Nights
Kimberley Islands Cruise

Broome, Australia - Broome, Australia


Cruise Aboard:


Night One

Your "welcome aboard" the magnificent True North is in the pearling port of Broome. Embarkation is at 1700 – time for a cocktail with your fellow adventurers before departing at approximately 1830. Dinner is served shortly after leaving port for the overnight cruise to Yampi Sound.

Day One
Awake to the majestic Kimberley and savour an irresistible True North breakfast as we glide past Cockatoo and Koolan Islands – our attentive crew will be happy to introduce the colourful histories of both! Then it’s time to "personally" introduce you to a Kimberley icon – The Horizontal Falls. Experience the awesome power of the region’s huge tidal range in an exhilarating tender ride and then climb aboard your air conditioned helicopter for a view of the falls that very few experience!

Then – you will have hardly had a chance to catch your breath when, for those who can’t wait one minute longer, Leadline Creek will be the first opportunity to "land a barra"! Before you know it, your first day onboard will be coming to an end – but there’s still time to select a fine wine and to enjoy a leisurely evening meal as we cruise to Doubtful Bay.

Day Two
Our first stop this morning is one of the Kimberley’s most historic sites – Phillip Parker King’s boab tree. And then it’s on to the mighty Prince Regent! The scenery will astound and there will be some not to be missed fishing action as the TRUE NORTH graces this majestic river. At Kings Cascades we manoeuvre the TRUE NORTH right under the falls before another breathtaking helicopter flight to a picnic that you’ll never forget – TRUE NORTH's mouth-watering cuisine alongside a crystal clear billabong – in one of the most remote places on earth! The helicopter will also be popular when the first group of intrepid explorers returns from Jurassic Park. Then we’ll rejoin the TRUE NORTH at our overnight anchorage off Camp Creek.

Day Three
The early risers will be treated to a heli-flight with a difference – a champagne sunrise on the top of a mountain! Then it’s time for more "adventure in the tenders" – a chance to stretch the laces on your hiking boots and an opportunity to swim in yet another picture perfect billabong! The more adventurous will use the helicopter to fish our most secret billabongs and everyone will find their own special place in the mighty Regent!

Day Four
This morning is devoted to exploring the Sale River. Fish the mouth for barra and then join naturalists and adventurers alike as we "ride the tide" on a classic river expedition! Enjoy a swim in your very own billabong before returning to the ultimate comfort of the TRUE NORTH. You will probably be enjoying lunch as we weigh anchor and set sail for Montgomery Reef! Montgomery is a unique eco-system that must be seen to be believed – and see it you will – as 140 square miles of coral reef rises out of the ocean right before your very eyes! Water cascades from the reef as the tide falls exposing a privileged glimpse of another world! Turtles, dugong, manta rays and every imaginable sea creature abound and the helicopter puts all in perspective!

Day Five
Start the day with some more hot fishing action – this time at "Three Ways". Then enjoy a refreshing swim at Ruby Falls – the ladies will not be able to resist our mud pack and day spa special! A short lunchtime cruise will deliver all aboard to the impressive silhouette of Raft Point. Here, join crew and guest alike for a moderate climb to an art gallery with a difference and, the well-preserved Raft Point Wandjina paintings.

Day Six
It’s time to "personally" introduce you to another Kimberley icon – The Horizontal Falls. Experience the awesome power of the region’s huge tidal range in an exhilarating tender ride and then climb aboard your air conditioned helicopter for a view of the falls that very few experience! Enjoy a swim at Crocodile Creek and a walk on Silica Beach. All too soon your adventure on the TRUE NORTH is coming to an end– enjoy a farewell dinner to remember as the TRUE NORTH glides past Cockatoo & Koolan Islands, Cape Leveque and down the Dampier Peninsula to Broome!

Day Seven
Our arrival in Broome is in time for an early morning coach transfer to your accommodation or connecting flights – our crew is already looking forward to the next opportunity to welcome you aboard the TRUE NORTH!
