Map & Itinerary

Day 1 – Broome, Western Australia
Enjoy Broome’s beaches, pearling industry and history before boarding Coral Expeditions I for a late afternoon departure.
Day 2 – Dampier Peninsula & Lacepede Islands
Passing Dampier Peninsula in the morning, we aim for the seabird and turtle nesting grounds of Lacepede Islands.
Days 3 to 4 – Horizontal Waterfalls & Montgomery Reef
Buccaneer Archipelago’s 800 iron-rich islands stretch across azure waters, delighting photographers. Crocodile Creek beckons us to cool off in refreshing waters, while the Horizontal Waterfalls lure the adventurous. Montgomery Reef channels reveal manta rays and sharks, and tidal cascades.
Days 5 to 6 – Camden Sound Whale Sanctuary & Prince Regent River
With luck we may see humpbacks and their calves in Camden Sound Whale Sanctuary. Mike Cusack leads us to the ruins of Kunmunya Mission, where he and his wife Susan lived, as Australian Geographic’s Wilderness Couple. A boating excursion along Prince Regent River takes us to King Cascade.
Day 7 – Prince Regent Nature Reserve
Mangrove stands, towering red cliffs and powerful tidal currents characterise Prince Regent Nature Reserve, where more than half the Kimberley’s bird and mammal species thrive. We may spotlight for saltwater crocodiles. A massive boab tree in Careening Bay bears the 1820 blaze of Phillip Parker King’s HMC Mermaid.
Day 8 – Bigge Island
Monjons (small rock wallabies) and nesting ospreys abound on Bigge Island, a significant cultural site. Immerse yourself in captivating Wandjina and Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) figures interpreted by our rock art specialists.
Day 9 – Vansittart Bay & King George River
The inlets, islands and protected waters of Vansittart Bay offer wonderful opportunities to search for Gwion Gwion figures or WWII relics. We cruise along King George River to the thundering, 80-metre cascade of King George Falls, WA’s tallest.
Day 10 – Joseph Bonaparte Gulf
Our last leg takes us across Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, first sighted by Abel Tasman in 1644 and named by French explorer Nicolas Baudin in 1803. The Gulf is a relatively shallow inlet of the Timor Sea. We may also explore the serpentine creek system below Cox Peninsula.
Day 11 – Darwin, Northern Territory
On arrival in Darwin, we farewell shipboard friends and a complimentary transfer takes us to our hotel or airport.
