Sail Away from the Crowds

Bigger is not always better in the cruising world. Our expedition ships are purposely built small, so we can access shallow shorelines and remote coastal areas.

Your Avenue to Adventure

Each ship carries a fleet of inflatable Zodiac vessels to get you close to where the action happens. Our expedition ships cruise along the Kimberley coastline, making use of Zodiacs every day to reach remote locations, so you can admire the landscapes from sea level.

Expect the Unexpected

On our expedition cruises, there is no regimented itinerary, which means that we can tailor each day to maximise your experience. We might stay a little longer on a remote island to catch sight of some wildlife, or take a different route on our Zodiacs if the tides are changing faster than expected.
