The award-winning Australian adventure cruise company, True North Adventure Cruises has recently launched its second vessel, True North II. The 36-metre adventure yacht underwent extensive refitting in Fremantle, Western Australia, and will now join True North on the Kimberley coast, providing guests with unparalleled access to spectacular coastal wilderness.
Craig Howson, True North’s founding director, said that no expense had been spared in ensuring that True North II meets the company’s exacting standards regarding onboard facility and comfort. Guests travelling on True North II can avail themselves of the same experiences offered on True North but at generally 25% fewer cabin prices. True North II has a capacity of 20 guests and features dedicated adventure boats and a ship’s helicopter, just like True North.
True North II’s sailing schedule will commence on April 5 and complement True North’s schedule in many instances. However, new itineraries include fishing and snorkelling at the Montebello Islands, viewing the solar eclipse at Ningaloo Reef, new 4- and 10-night adventures in the Kimberley, 13 nights on the Great Barrier Reef, and a 7-night itinerary ideally suited for charter that will feature Christmas and New Year in Sydney.
