Visit Prince Frederick Harbour, located at the southern end of York Sound. Composed of ancient mangroves and monsoon rainforests, this region is a wonderland of wetland delights. And because of its isolated environment, you'll hopefully come across a rare creature or two basking on the sunny banks. Other critters like white-bellied sea eagles and birds of prey are often seen here among the predators. Head back to your ship in the afternoon.

Admire the King Cascades, a spectacular waterfall that falls in torrents over terraced rock formations.


Cruise the Prince Regent River, named by the crew of the survey vessel, the HMC Mermaid, who were the first Europeans to discover it in 1820.

Lush green waterfalls, WA

Experience a truly spectacular moment when Montgomery Reef rises out of the ocean as the tide falls. Stretching over 300 square kilometres across the Indian Ocean, witness the miniature waterfalls cascade down the exposed reef walls in all directions, creating an awe-inspiring effect. Discover the reef’s diverse marine life including turtles, manta rays and reef sharks. Later, make sure to have your camera at the ready as you cruise through the dramatic and rugged sea cliffs at Doubtful Bay.

Board a Zodiac for a ride through Horizontal falls. When the 12-metre tide turns, strong currents rush through the two narrow coastal gorges, creating a cascading effect.


Travel through the Buccaneer Archipelago, a group of over 800 islands strewn across the azure waters of the Timor Sea. Your skilled captain navigates smoothly through the hidden whirlpools, unmarked rocks and reefs caused by the largest tides in the Southern Hemisphere. The islands’ rocks are over two billion years old, still in pristine condition due to the isolation and minimal tourism of the area. We head towards Talbot Bay and see the majestic Horizontal Falls. Later, explore the stunning white sands at Silica Beach.

Cruise to the Lacepede Islands (subject to conditions), a group of four islands home to an abundance of marine birds.

Tonight, say goodbye to your fellow travellers and friendly crew while you enjoy Captain’s Farewell Drinks.
