Ponant luxury cruise lines has recently released dates and details of their 2018 Kimberley cruise season. The Iconic Kimberley expeditions will run from June to August 2018.
Travellers can choose between four 10-night voyages which include must-see sites such as the Hunter River, King George Falls, Mitchell Falls, Montgomery Reef and Horizontal Falls, as well as lesser known destinations and experiences that their team of naturalists and conservationists have uncovered throughout their years of experience along the 13,000-kilometre coastline.
Guests travelling on board L’Austral, the youngest ship in the region, will also be joined by a team that carries over 50 years of experience in the Kimberley, lead by photographer Matt Fogg, a veteran of over 120 Kimberley expeditions and 12 other experienced marine biologists, naturalists and conservationists.
Highlights on the itinerary include Gwion Gwion rock markings and Wandjina rock arts, terrain that predates the existence of fossils, breathtaking waterfalls and rare sightings of migrating Humpback whales.
Rates for the 10-night cruise start from A$8510 per person in a Deluxe Stateroom with a private balcony.
