Spectacular 10 night expeditions
FLY FREE, PLUS up to €100 SHIPBOARD CREDIT – LIMITED TIME OFFER*!
Set sail for the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Kimberley on a spectacular 10-night expedition cruise between Darwin and Broome. With a spectacular coastline, stunning waterfalls, abrupt gorges, savannah, and calm waters, the wild lands of the Kimberley promise an exceptional adventure.
Visit the picturesque Hunter River to see wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live, along with many species of birds. A high point of this cruise will undoubtedly be the discovery of the King George River and the majestic Twin Falls, the highest single-drop waterfall in Western Australia. You will also visit Collier Bay to admire a spectacular example of the impact of the tides cascading in mini-waterfalls as the entire Montgomery Reef appears to rise from the turquoise-blue waters of the bay.
Ponant will operate two stunning expedition ships during the season – step aboard Le Lapérouse or Le Jacques-Cartier and enjoy all the traditional Ponant benefits: outstanding modern ships, a range of luxury facilities including a swimming pool, spa, choice of restaurants and an open bar. Whichever expedition you choose, you will experience the exceptional levels of comfort and service that are the very hallmark of Ponant.
