The brand new Le Laperouse ship hosts 184 guests in chic French style surrounds. This ‘Clean’ ship is kind to the local environment using satellite navigation to hold the ship over any particular spot without the need to drop anchor or disturb pristine marine sanctuaries. She also boasts a new underwater ‘Blue Eye Lounge’ for viewing and hearing the comings and goings of the marine creatures nearby. There are excellent recycling and green practices maintained onboard and you can travel with confidence on this beautiful new vessel.
Most of your excursions will be by Zodiac travelling with enthusiastic Expedition Guides as you skim along glassy blue waters rimmed by red and orange cliffs. Expect to see many a ‘saltie’ croc and hundreds of birds while out and about. The Kimberley is famous for her magnificent waterfalls where millions of litres of water tumble over ancient cliffs each day. This land is a spiritual song for the soul and the traditional land owners will be pleased to teach you some of her many stories on visits to incredibly old caves where rock art is still maintained by the current generations.
A highlight of any trip to the Kimberley is Montgomery Reef, a tidal phenomenon where due to drastic tidal changes, a whole underwater reef is exposed each day at low tide. This strands fish, crabs and all kinds of water-folk that become a smorgasbord for local birds and land-walking octopus. The tides also bring about another unique natural oddity, the famous Horizontal Falls, where two narrow chasms are just too small for the sheer amount of water passing through them on the changing tide and form ‘falls’ of rushing water. Passing through these narrow gorges is pretty exciting as you feel the sheer power of the water under your boat.
