Map & Itinerary

Day 1 – Darwin, Northern Territory
We meet in Darwin, Northern Territory and board Coral Expeditions I for a morning departure.
Day 2 – Joseph Bonaparte Gulf
We start by crossing Joseph Bonaparte Gulf which was first sighted by Abel Tasman in 1644 and named by French explorer Nicolas Baudin in 1803. Located in the Timor Sea, the gulf consists of a shallow inlet. We also try to explore the serpentine creek system below Cox Peninsula.
Day 3 – Vansittart Bay & King George River
Vansittart Bay has many inlets, islands and protected waters that let us search for Gwion Gwion figures and WWII relics. WA's tallest waterfall, 80-meter thundering King George Falls await us on the other side of the King George River.
Day 4 – Bigge Island
Bigge Island is an important cultural landing site and is home to monjons (small rock wallabies) and ospreys. Our rock painting specialist will take you through the fascinating Wandjina and Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) figures.
Day 5 – Prince Regent Nature Reserve
Prince Regent Nature Reserve is where more than half of the region's bird life and mammal species thrive. The reserve boasts mangrove stands, towering red cliffs, impressive tidal currents and the famous saltwater crocodiles. In Careening Bay, a huge boab tree bears the 1820 blaze of Phillip Parker King's HMC Mermaid.
Days 6 to 7 – Camden Sound Whale Sanctuary & Prince Regent River
We hope to be lucky enough to see humpback whales and their young in Camden Sound Whale Sanctuary. Expedition leader and Kimberley expert Mike Cusack takes us to ruins of the Kunmunya Mission, the remote settlement he and his wife Susan called home for a year, as Australia Geographic's Wilderness Couple. We'll also cruise along Prince Regent River up to the cooling King Cascade.
Days 8 to 9 – Horizontal Waterfalls & Montgomery Reef
Photographers will revel in the 800 iron-rich islands that make up the Buccaneer Archipelago, stretching across azure waters. We take the time to cool off in Crocodile Creek and the adventure seekers experience the thrill of a Zodiac cruise through the powerful Horizontal Waterfalls. The marine sanctuary of Montgomery Reef is home to friendly manta rays and sharks and tidal cascades.
Day 10 – Dampier Peninsula & Lacepede Islands
Today we sail pass the Dampier Peninsula and head towards the Lacepede Islands in search of seabird and turtle nesting grounds.
Day 11 – Broome, Western Australia
On arrival in Broome, farewell shipboard friends and crew, before being transferred to the airport or continue on to explore Broome’s beaches, its pearling industry and captivating history.
