Additional Trip Information
Arrival and Departures
Complimentary transfers are included in the trip price. Generally, embarkation in Broome will be from 3:30 PM onward. We highly recommend guests arrive in Broome the day prior to the cruise departure or no later than noon on the day of embarkation. On the day of disembarkation, at approximately 8:00 AM, a coach transfer is provided from the port of Wyndham to the town of Kununurra. If connecting with an onward flight on the same day, we recommend this departs no earlier than 10:30 AM.
True North wants you to experience the Kimberley coastline, and their activity-based cruises and avoidance of extended periods at sea allow you take in all that Western Australian has to offer. Daily activities include scenic walks, helicopter flights, culture, fishing, snorkeling, picnics, exploring, nature, and much more. All activities are designed to your wants and desires; if you’d rather hike than snorkel, then your crew can arrange that; if you want to experience a scenic helicopter flight over King George Falls rather than climb to the vantage point, you just say the word; if you crave a fishing experience like no other and your significant other would rather spend the day basking in a picture-perfect billabong, all of this and more can be arranged in order to make your vacation absolutely perfect. Discovery:
The Kimberley in Australia is one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth, with iconic outback landscapes and undiscovered secrets billions of years in the making. Covering nearly 263,000 square miles in north Western Australia, with a population of less than 40,000 people, it’s here you’ll encounter some of the most extraordinary adventures in all of Australia. Discover ancient gorge country, pristine castaway beaches, one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth, and the world’s only horizontal waterfalls. Hidden in the region’s heart, vast wildlife sanctuaries, spectacular gorges and thundering waterfalls provide the perfect backdrop for a Kimberley holiday adventure. And on its coast lie some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, untouched coral atolls and rugged islands with an amazing variety of marine life. Your guides and crew will take the time to explain the details of each activity, answer any questions and demonstrate the use of all equipment. Each activity has been carefully planned to include options for all levels. Most importantly, your guides will help you select the distance or activity that’s right for you.

Food is always a highlight on a True North Cruise. Hors d’oeuvres in the ship’s lounge is a not to be missed daily event! Keep an eye out for succulent oysters (which you almost certainly helped collect!) and sashimi caught just hours before. Signature dining includes freshly caught barramundi – a revered sport fish possibly caught with your very own hands, or perhaps aged Angus or delicate Wagyu beef, or exquisite Australian lamb! Heli-picnics are an unforgettable way to enjoy the quintessential Aussie barbeque featuring a wide variety of seafood including freshly caught reef fish, local king prawns, squid, pearl meat and smoked salmon. All meals on board the cruise: breakfasts, lunches, snacks, dinners, refreshments and receptions are included as indicated by the itinerary. (B = Breakfast, L = Lunch, D = Dinner). Alcoholic beverages and related gratuities are not included in the trip price. Included in the Trip Price
