Ponant Kimberley & Rowley Shoals Cruising 2021

Spectacular 12 night Darwin to Broome expedition - limited availability!

With steep gorges, stunning falls, crystal clear waters and remote mountain ranges, the untamed lands of the Kimberley hold the promise of a quintessential Australian adventure. The vast Kimberley wilderness was formed billions of years ago and today it remains just as rugged, remote and breathtaking. Offshore, the magnificent Rowley Shoals atoll-like coral reefs offer a unique and enthralling experience with shallow lagoons, colourful corals and an incredible array of marine life – a true watery wilderness!

Set sail aboard the luxurious Le Soléal that will take you along one of the most spectacular and wild coasts of the region on a magnificent 12-night expedition from Darwin to Broome.

See wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds in the Hunter River. Discover the King George River and the majestic Twin Falls, the highest falls in Western Australia. Admire Montgomery Reef with its turquoise-blue waters at Collier Bay and cruise to the pristine Rowley Shoals that will reveal extraordinary underwater life. 

Onboard Le Soléal, a ship with 132 cabins, you will have the privilege of exploring the Kimberley while enjoying all the traditional Ponant benefits: an outstanding modern ship, a range of facilities including swimming pool, spa, choice of restaurants and open bar. Experience the exceptional levels of comfort and service that are the very hallmark of Ponant.
