PONANT Returns to Australia with the Kimberly 2022 Expedition

PONANT is thrilled to announce the restart of its Kimberley 2022 expedition season, following the highly anticipated statement by Western Australia to welcome small interstate and international expedition ships with a maximum of 350 persons to its waters.

With operations resuming 28 April 2022, PONANT will offer multiple departures between April and October including two new departure dates for its enormously popular 10-night ‘Australia’s Iconic Kimberley’ between Broome and Darwin, showcasing the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Kimberley onboard small luxury expedition ship Le Soléal.

Highlights on the itinerary include visiting the Hunter River inhabited estuarine crocodiles; discovering the King George River on a Zodiac® excursion and reaching the majestic Twin Falls, the highest in Western Australia; and a visit to Collier Bay to explore Montgomery reef. Sailing along one of the most spectacular coasts in Australia, the Kimberley’s falls, savannah, and tidal phenomena promise never to disappoint.

Environmentally friendly, fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and complete with lounges designed to be largely open to the exterior, PONANT’s modern, purpose-built, intimately sized ships offer a unique experience at sea, offering unparalleled comfort and luxury for exploring the region. Le Soléal provides 95% balcony accommodation and offers a selection of world-class dining options, open bar*, a spa and an outdoor swimming pool.
