True North in the Kimberley

True North cruises

North Star Cruises is one of the most unique adventure-cruise operators in the world and the winner of numerous awards for excellence. The company offers activity based itineraries designed specifically for the discerning adventurer.

All cruises are designed to allow you to ‘experience the destination’ — daily activities include scenic walks, helicopter flights, fishing, snorkeling, culture, picnics, nature, diving, exploring and much more!

The True North features the ultimate in comfort and style. You will be part of a select group of passengers; numbers are limited to 36 guests with an Australian crew of 20 providing highly personalized service.

The ship is purpose built for accessing shallow river systems and offers several lavish vantage points including a sun deck, an observation lounge and a ship’s lounge/bar. Multiple expedition vessels will take you away in small groups to experience wilderness ‘up close’ and, the luxury of numerous tenders also means that everybody onboard gets to do “what they want, when they want”. And, the True North is the only Kimberley vessel that features an onboard helicopter.

Cabins are spacious and feature modern décor, large en suites, satellite telephones and in-cabin entertainment. Fine dining is also featured onboard the True North.
