True North Cruises, The Kimberley
Arguably one of the most unique adventure-cruise operators in the world, True North offers activity-based itineraries in ultimate comfort and style aboard the ‘True North’ – a spacious, state-of-the-art, 50 metre luxury cruiser, purpose-designed and built for exploring Australia’s remote coastal waters. With a ratio of just 36 passengers and 20 crew, personalised service is assured.
True North Cruises
The True North offers a range of unique itineraries throughout the year – the most frequent being the ‘Kimberley Wilderness Cruise’ (which operates between March and September). This unique 13-night voyage follows the remote but stunning Kimberley coastline between Broome and Wyndham (and for those with less time, is also available as a 10 and 7-night voyage between Broome and Hunter River or Hunter River and Wyndham). Other itineraries include the ‘West Coast Explorer’ which travels from Perth to Dampier (March), the ‘Coral Atoll Cruise’ which visits the crystal clear waters of the Rowley Shoals from Broome (September/October), ‘Over the Top’ which follows the coastline from Darwin to Cairns (October) and ‘Adventures in Paradise’ which travels to Papua New Guinea from Cairns (November). For the ultimate Sydney New Year experience True North offers a 4-night cruise in and around Sydney Harbour departing just before New Year Eve.
All cruises are designed to allow passengers to experience the destination to the full – daily activities include scenic walks, helicopter flights (the True North carries its own onboard helicopter which provides opportunities for some of the most amazing sightseeing you will ever experience), fishing, snorkelling, diving, exploring and wildlife encounters. Numerous expedition vessels take guests in small groups to experience the wilderness ‘up close’.
Onboard, the ship offers several lavish vantage points for enjoying the magnificent scenery, including a sundeck, an observation lounge and an alfresco bar. Fine cuisine is integral to the True North experience – signature dishes include fresh barramundi (perhaps caught with your very own hands), giant black-lip oysters and Kimberley rib. The spacious cabins are more akin to a stylish hotel than an expedition vessel – featuring stylish décor, large ensuite bathrooms and in-cabin entertainment. The Explorer Class Staterooms and River Class cabins boast king size beds that can be converted to singles whilst the Ocean Class cabins have two single beds.
