True North, what an experience. It would have to be the best cruise we have experienced. Captain Gav and his crew were "Simply the Best!!" Treated us like family.

If you want an experience The Kimberley Region and all it has to offer, then these are the people to show you it all. From the tender boat rides which included fishing - OMG was that something, mud crabbing. Then if you just want to experience the beauty of the gorges and waterfalls you've got it, either by tender boats or the helicopter with Sam your pilot. Deke ticked off his bucket list the Mitchell Falls, this was everything he had hoped for and it did not disappoint him, it was breathtaking, now my bucket list was to have a shower under one of the waterfalls - OMG what an experience!! Fist one was when the tender boat took us up to the waterfalls and those mad enough sat on the front of the boat and enjoyed a shower - then, Captain Gav. took the True North with the help of one of the crew to one of the larger waterfalls and again, those mad enough (that's me!!) had another shower. Well done Gav. you were incredible to get the ship up so close to the waterfall.

The tender boat rides took us to some amazing waterholes (no Crocs!!) where we were able to swim and explore the gorges.

We had this amazing BBQ which we got to via Sam and his helicopter, nestled in under a large rock shelf overlooking a beautiful rock pool which you could have a short walk down some rocks and enjoy a swim. Our lovey chefs and crew arrived prior to us and set up the BBQ and seating, this was no ordinary BBQ, marinated fillet eye steak, marinated fish and chicken pieces, sausages and a lovely selection of salads and garlic bread, lovely finger food deserts, Champagne, beer, wine and soft drink.
