True North Adventure Cruises Adds Second Vessel

Acclaimed Australian small ship cruise line The True North has added The True North II to its fleet with the new vessel set to join its sibling in Western Australia. 

Following an extensive refit in Fremantle, the 36-metre adventure yacht will cruise the Kimberley coast and provide guests with unparalleled access to spectacular coastal wilderness.

True North II will have the capacity for 20 guests and like the original True North ship, it will feature dedicated adventure boats and a ship’s helicopter.

True North II‘s sailing schedule commenced this week and in many instances, it will complement the True North’s schedule. However, new itineraries include fishing and snorkelling at the Montebello Islands, seeing the solar eclipse at Ningaloo Reef, new four and 10-night adventures in the Kimberley, 13 nights on the Great Barrier Reef and a seven-night itinerary ideally suited to charter that will feature Christmas and New Year in Sydney.

“No expense has been spared in making sure that True North II meets True North’s exacting standards when it comes to onboard facility and comfort,” says True North’s founding director, Craig Howson. “Guests travelling on True North II will be able to avail themselves of the same experiences as those offered on the True North. The only difference is that the more compact nature of True North II will allow us to provide those same experiences for generally 25% less when compared to cabin prices on the True North!”

True North and True North II are purpose-built to sail deep into the heart of the wilderness, visiting areas that larger ships cannot access. Guests are privy to immersive excursions via onboard helicopters and dedicated adventure boats. While True North caters to 36 guests and features the ultimate in comfort and style, including a panoramic dining saloon, a dedicated ship’s lounge, an alfresco bar, and an observation lounge, the new addition features a more intimate experience for just 20 guests, with a combined saloon/lounge.

Exceptional food and wine are also at the heart of the True North experience, with modern Australian cuisine supplemented with locally sourced ingredients and complemented by an outstanding selection of Western Australian wines
