True North


Sail southern waters in style aboard a ship built for sophisticated adventuring.

A trip on the True North isn’t your typical cruise. For one thing there are never more than 36 guests on board, meaning the 22-person crew are incredibly attentive. The purpose-built adventure vessel sails around the Australian coastline, and through the waters of Indonesia, West Papua and Papua New Guinea – but what the itinerary looks like is up to you. There are no cookie-cutter excursions here.

Six expedition boats mean you can head off fishing, diving, snorkelling or whatever else takes your fancy without worrying about what’s planned for the day. And did we mention the on-board helicopter? The six-seater Eurocopter takes trips out to remote areas that other ships can’t possibly reach. You’ll board the helicopter straight from the deck, and take scenic flights over island archipelagos, before the pilot drops you back on board.

The True North’s relatively shallow draft of 2.5 metres also means it can go where bigger ships can’t. You don’t need to worry about seasickness though; computer-controlled motion stabilisers keep you level at all times. So there’s no fear of queasiness when you’re dining below deck. Instead, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the world sailing by from the panoramic dining room windows.
