Stay: Nine Nights, MS Caledonian Sky
Ride aboard a Zodiac to approach King George Falls, which plunge 80 metres over a sandstone cliff. Edge closer to this epic cascade and learn how it turns to a raging torrent during the monsoonal wet season.Wake this morning as your ship cruises into Koolama Bay. Hear how this harbour was renamed following the Japanese bombing of the MV Koolama in 1942. Next, it’s on to King George River. Join your expedition team and jump aboard a Zodiac to meander through the river’s gorge system, passing hidden mangrove-fringed coves and soaring red cliffs.
See examples of first-contact art depicting European tall ships dating from the 15th to 18th century in caves throughout Bigge Island. Having been repainted annually for the past 5,000 years, the images are thought to be the oldest continuous sacred-painting tradition on the planet.
After a busy day of exploring, return to your ship and perhaps dine al fresco this evening.
Board a Zodiac to witness Montgomery Reef rise out of the ocean as the tidal waters cascade rapidly into the surrounding channels. Keep an eye out for unique bird life and turtles which may pop their heads up from time to time.
After an in-depth exploration of Montgomery Reef, cruise through Doubtful Bay, a hotspot for whale watching during the season. Later, step ashore at Raft Point to visit an ancient Wandjina rock art site. These unique art figures are ritually repainted each year, however scientific estimates show that the originals date back as far as 5,000 years. When available, a local Indigenous guide will join you.
Subject to tidal conditions, set out on a thrilling ride through the falls aboard a high-powered fast boat. Hold on tight as your boat skims across Talbot Bay to the mouth of the falls before making its way through the churning waters.
Today your ship cruises through to Talbot Bay, known for its epic 12-metre tides that create an astonishing natural spectacle, the Horizontal Falls. The adventure continues later as your Zodiac explores Cyclone Creek. See dramatic folds in the rock formations as you navigate through the creek, accompanied by your expedition team member.
