True North Rowley Shoals adventure

#expeditioncruising 
 


Three departures this September for True North’s action packed Rowley Shoals itinerary

300km off the coast of Broome lies one of our country’s best underwater secrets; the Rowley Shoals. Made up of three rarely visited coral atolls, the Rowley Shoals is a watery paradise brimming with untouched coral reefs, clear lagoons and incredible marine life. And if there’s one way to explore this breathtaking environment it’s on board the mighty True North, where expedition and adventure are just part of the regular daily schedule.

With three 5 night departures scheduled for this September, True North’s Rowley Shoals itinerary offers the perfect opportunity for the keen but time-poor adventurer to bask in the magnificence of the Rowleys and in True North’s exceptional hospitality.

Guests are guided by the True North’s expert all Australian crew. They know exactly where all of the best spots are, whether they are fishing for black marlin, sailfish, wahoo, and yellow-fin tuna and sport fishing the lagoon for giant coral trout and long-nosed emperor, or diving and snorkelling the pristine coral gardens. True North’s on-board biologist will also be on hand to offer environmental insights into the wonders of this natural water playground.

North Star Cruises GM Peter Trembath rates the Rowley Shoals as one of his favourite destinations. “There’s something really magical about the Rowleys. The pristine turquoise waters and colourful corals, the idyllic white sand at Bedwell Island and the vast array of marine life, it’s all there.”

“What makes the area even more special is less than 300 people a year are fortunate enough to visit – it’s really a very exclusive destination.”

This year’s cruise dates are September 13-19th, 18-23rd and 24-29th. Pricing starts from $4,995 per person.

Australia’s premier luxury adventure-cruise ship, the True North is purpose-built to sail deep into the heart of the wilderness, visiting areas that larger ships cannot access. Guests are privy to only the highest quality experiences courtesy of True North’s on-board biologist, a team of naturalists, a ship’s helicopter and six dedicated expedition boats. In fact, a knowledgeable crew of 20 tend to the every-need of just 36 guests.

Exceptional food and wine are also at the heart of a True North experience. The ship’s modern Australian cuisine is supplemented with locally sourced ingredients and complemented by an outstanding selection of Western Australian wines. Cabins are spacious and modern; there is a panoramic lower deck dining room, a ship’s lounge, an alfresco bar, an observation lounge and a sports deck.
