Night Time Crocodile Spotting on the Remote Kimberley Coast

In the dead of night, Aurora Expeditions most intrepid passengers can board their small Explorer vessel alongside expert naturalist Dan Balint in search of crocodiles. Under the spectacular night sky, guests will quietly glide through the inky waters armed with spotlights whilst developing a greater understanding of the feeding and breeding habits of these magnificent reptiles.

Under the watchful eye of the expedition team, led by the original Kimberley Adventurer - Mike Cusack (Australian Geographic's Wilderness Couple), guests are taken on the voyage of a lifetime with activities including Rock Art interpretation, swimming under waterfalls, bush walks, beach BBQ's and shark feeding. Travelling aboard the newly refurbished Coral Princess with a maximum of 44 passengers, Aurora's innovative itineraries ensure passengers explore new locations each day, discovering all the highlights (and a few hidden gems) of the Kimberley Coast.

Renowned art historian - Garry Darby, unlocks the wonders of the ancient rock art, with special opportunities to explore Langgi and Bigge Island - one of the most significant historical and cultural sites on the Kimberley coast with its sacred ceremonial sites and spectacular Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) and Wandjina rock art.

Other highlights include The Mermaid Boab Tree at Careening Bay where in 1820 a carpenter aboard HMS Mermaid inscribed the name of the stricken vessel on a Boab. The twin trunked Boab is now 12 meters wide and a spectacular testament to Philip Parker King's pioneering travels. Other iconic destinations include the Horizontal Waterfalls, perfect for thrill-seekers, or the awe-inspiring Montgomery Reef.

11 day Broome to Broome voyages depart on 28th May – 7th June and 8th – 18th June 2012 aboard the newly refurbished Coral Princess. Prices start from $6990 per person for the voyage.
