Silversea Cruises Silver Discoverer in the Kimberley


VOYAGE OF THE WEEK – 14 NOVEMBER 2014

EXPLORE THE REMOTE KIMBERLEY REGION ABOARD SILVER DISCOVERER



Explore the incredible landscape of the Kimberley on board Silversea's latest expedition ship, Silver Discoverer. This 10 day voyage takes guests through this largely inaccessible location and uncovers the natural wonders of this beautiful part of the world.

Departing Darwin on 19 April 2015, Silver Discoverer sets sails for Western Australia's northernmost town, Wyndham, where guests can view the breathtaking World Heritage listed Bungle Bungle mountain range in Purnululu National Park, a World Heritage Site, during a scenic overflight.

The voyage then continues along Kimberley's coastal region for six days of exploration. Famous for having the second largest tidal range in the world after the Bay of Fundy, Silver Discoverer's flexible itinerary enables the Expedition team to take advantage of this natural phenomenon. Each day the Expedition Leader and Captain will determine Silver Discoverer's best course, depending on tide, weather and sea conditions.

Ports of call may include: Nares Point and Crocodile Creek, where guests will explore the superb location by Zodiac and enjoy a swim in the natural pool; Montgomery Reef, a river surrounded by cascading waterfalls and filled with an abundance of reef birds and sea creatures; and King George River and Falls, one of the Kimberley's most magnificent natural wonders, with amazing landscapes of near vertical red rock formations and a parade of wildlife. After six days of exploration and discovery, this voyage continues to Broome, with guests disembarking on 29 April 2015.

Prices are per person starting from AU$10,950 in an Explorer Suite, double occupancy. Silversea Expeditions' fares include: all shore and Zodiac excursions hosted by an expedition leader; all-suite accommodation with butler service; gourmet meals with menus inspired by Relais & Châteaux; complimentary wines, Champagne and spirits served throughout the ships; and all gratuities.
