Cruise Australia’s Coastal Wilderness Series

For 35 years, we have called Australia home. We sail with one purpose – to take small groups of like-minded explorers to remote places, with expert guidance and warm Australian hospitality. After witnessing the towering sandstone escarpments of the Kimberley Coastline, the marine diversity of Ningaloo reef, or historic moments depicted in indigenous rock art at the top end, it’s easy to see why there is simply no place like Australia.

We look forward to rediscovering the Australian coastline with you.
