Book Now to Receive Free Airfare Inclusion

North Star's popular West Coast Explorer is about to become even more popular

Featuring the intriguing Abrolhos Islands, the world-famous Ningaloo Reef and fishing paradise at the marvellous Montebello Island – the West Coaster never fails to impress. But in 2013 this ever-green saunter along the still-wild coast of Western Australia will impress even more - with the addition of a complimentary flight from Dampier back to Perth! Book before Monday 19 November to receive this offer.

Guests will embark the mighty TRUE NORTH in cosmopolitan Fremantle and the traditional 'welcome-aboard' cocktail will likely be framed in one of The West's fiery summer sunsets! An introduction to the ship's renowned crew is followed by the first of many inspired dining experiences and then it's an overnight steam to the Abrolhos.

The following day reveals one of WA's most-desirable aquatic playgrounds. The Abrolhos Islands are well-known as the home of the state's lucrative rock lobster fishery however they also attract aquatic adventurers who revel in stories of ship-wreck and murderous mutiny. An opportunity to snorkel the 1629 wreck of the Batavia is definitely one of the cruise highlights and accounts of the wreck's hapless survivors never fail to intrigue. But the islands are also a naturalist's delight and the fishers on-board will have every chance of catching one of the finest eating fish in the ocean - the highly regarded Westralian jewfish!

When the TRUE NORTH moves back into the coast – it's all-ashore for an exhilarating climb to the top of Steep Point and the frequent-cruisers will be well-versed in using the ship's helicopter to secure unique perspective.

Nearby, the waters surrounding Dirk Hartog Island reliably produce close encounters with manta ray and gentle grey-nurse shark.

Imagine swimming amidst clouds of colourful fish set against pristine corals. Imagine all in knee-deep water just metres from the brilliant white sands of a squeaky clean beach. Imagine Ningaloo Reef.

The Montes are truly a North Star favourite. Mouth-watering whiting and feisty mud-crabs will definitely be on the menu. North Star 'picnics' are always a 'big-hit' and the Montes present as yet another unique setting. Opportunities for diving and relaxed snorkelling also abound.

Packed with variety and highlights every day – this once-a-year cruise needs to be on everyone's bucket-list! And now with the added convenience of a complimentary Qantas flight back to sunny Perth
