And to celebrate this very auspicious occasion, North Star Cruises is giving away 25 heli-packages valued at $1000 to the next 25 people who book either one of our remaining 2012 Kimberley Ultimate cruises or, any 2012 PNG departure! Plus, we’ll make sure there is a bottle of champers waiting for you on-board

Continuing a reputation as Australia’s pioneers in adventure-cruising, North Star Cruises have again set the benchmark with the release of new itineraries in Papua New Guinea.

During 2011 the company’s revered adventure-cruise ship TRUE NORTH undertook a 21 day circumnavigation of the Bismarck Sea. Senior captain Brad Benbow and ship’s biologist Dr Andy Lewis, collaborated with a boatload of enthusiastic passengers to refine the company’s new Sepik Soiree and Bismarck Bonanza itineraries – ensuring brand new opportunities to discover virtually untouched areas of Papua New Guinea.

2012 highlights will include the vast reef complexes around Rambutyo Island, the turquoise waters of Ninigo Atoll, flying over active volcanos, swimming with manta rays, black bass fishing and cruising the mighty Sepik River

Guests will be intrigued by visits to the spirit house at Yentchan Village and may even get to witness rarely seen rituals.  There are also opportunities to purchase exotic artefacts

Life on-board the TRUE NORTH offers something for everyone, from a lazy basking in the sun, to diving, hiking and, fishing in what can only be described as a fisherman’s paradise. 

Divers and snorkelers can expect some of the best underwater scenery on the planet with the myriad reefs providing countless coral playgrounds – no words can describe the underwater beauty of the areas visited.

And fish guru Dr Gerry Allen will also be part of the 2012 line-up

“The 2011 voyages completely surpassed all our expectations, when world-experts see things that cause them to gasp in awe we know we are seeing something pretty special and sharing all this with our guests is always our joy”, said North Star Cruises director Craig Howson, a veteran of 25 years  adventure-cruising on the Kimberley coast.
