Specialist guides, zodiac handles and all round good guys

We sailed out of Broome in the north of Western Australia, This was the last cruise of the season before the temperatures became too excessive and the wet arrives. What a delight this small ship is! For those who remember - she was originally a Renaissance Ship - not the big ones - but a smaller version. A hundred passengers all made welcome. All drinks, excursions are included. Our first morning at sea gave us a fabulous display of breaching whales. The captain kindly slowed the engines and circled the pod for upwards of 2 hours.

We loaded the zodiacs everyday to places many have never heard of much less travelled to - Lacepede Islands for turtles and boobies, Montgomery reef - a unique natural wonder, Talbot Bay and the Horizontal Waterfall, the Hunter River to crocodile spot, Raft point for ancient Gwion Gwion rock art, Vansittart Bay to cross the salt flats to see the remains of US Air Force DC3 (WWII)- still in remarkable condition, the King George Falls, and a flight from Wyndam to the Argyle Diamond Mine - no folks they did not give samples.

Our cabin was HUGE, the service faultless- the impression given by the crew was of a large happy family- and that transmitted to the passengers. On borad entertainment was terrific - Thanks Fran and Gus (Amazon Blue)

Travelled around on local bus - gets you everywhere - take the $10 day ticket


Flew straight home - but if you're in Darwin head to Litchfield Park
