    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Saturday, April 9, 2022 Broome, Australia Embark 2:00 PM
    View of Broome, Australia

    Broome, situated on a peninsula in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, is known as the ‘pearl of the north’ due to its being the home of the South Sea pearls, among the largest commercially harvested cultured pearls in the world. In the 1800s Broome attracted pearl divers from Japan, Malaysia and the Philippines, resulting in the delightful multicultural town it is today. Visitors can witness first-hand how Broome pearls are cultured on a cruise to a local pearl farm, and hear the romantic stories of the original pearl luggers. Read more about Broome, Australia

    3 Monday, April 11, 2022 Talbot Bay, Australia 6:00 AM 6:00 PM

    Talbot Bay encloses the 800, rugged and sparsely vegetated islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The major attraction, drawing thousands of visitors each year, is the Horizontal 'two way' Waterfall' that results from massive tidal movements that cause a waterfall effect as water banks up against one side of a narrow coastal gorge, then hurtles through, sideways, up to 5 metres high, to be repeated again on the turning tide! Naturalist David described the Horizontal Falls as "One of the greatest wonders of the natural world". Read more about Talbot Bay, Australia

    4 Tuesday, April 12, 2022 Montgomery Reef, Australia 6:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Montgomery Reef, Australia

    The Montgomery Reef is Australia's largest inshore reef system covering more than 300km2, near the mouth of the Sale River off the Kimberley coast of West Australia. At high tide you see very little of the Reef but as the tide drops rapidly away a raging torrent of water, cascading off the top of this 400ha reef erupts, as miles of surrounding reef appears to slowly rise out of the ocean.

    5 Wednesday, April 13, 2022 Bigge Island, Australia 6:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Bigge Island, Australia

    Bigge Island is the second largest of the islands that comprise the Bonaparte Archipelago, off the coast of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The island is composed of weathered sandstones that form a rugged and barren landscape, but it is criss-crossed by many deep grooves and fissures, forming valleys that support the island's vegetation. Being uninhabited and free of feral creatures, it is a safe habitat for several vulnerable mammal species, including the small Monjon rock wallabies, the Ilangnalya, and the Northern Quoll.
