Rare, Remote, Enriching

Seabourn’s new voyages aren’t just about experiencing the wild, isolated Kimberley in ultra-luxe style – they’re about seeing the world through new eyes

Sponsored by

These days, true wilderness is hard to find – unless you know where to look. Seabourn, a world leader in exclusive ocean voyages and expedition travel, certainly does.


The company recently announced the launch of new sailings to The Kimberley, a remote corner of Western Australia whose jaw-dropping canyons and waterfalls, show-stopping flora and fauna, and bucket-list-topping cultural treasures some 50,000 years old should make it one of the world’s most sought-after destinations, yet its isolation keeps The Kimberley flying under most mainstream travellers’ radar – luckily for those privileged enough to visit.


In 2024, the new expedition ship Seabourn Pursuit will set out for this region of natural riches. Here, the highly trained Expedition Team will take guests by Zodiac to the spectacular Horizontal Waterfalls, along surreal sandstone escarpments, through spectacular gorges and into primaeval caves richly adorned with rock art, accompanied by a team of experts in history and science who will set the stage for an unforgettable, immersive experience.


Among the unique ecosystems, breathtaking landscapes and elusive wildlife, a particular highlight is the variety of birdlife, from osprey, white-tailed sea eagles and brahminy kites, as well as many others on the Lacepede Islands – identified by Birdlife International as an Important Bird Area supporting more than 1% of the world populations of brown boobies and roseate terns.


Guests will also be able to view the ancient, biologically rich Montgomery Reef, recognised today as one of the most significant geological marine environments, as well as King George Falls, Western Australia’s highest twin waterfalls. On land, they will search for crocodiles, tawny nurse sharks, flying foxes, short-eared rock wallabies and other unique creatures, and will even have the option to stand next to the striking Gadawon, or ‘boab’ tree. As guests of the Traditional Owners of this land, travellers will hear age-old Aboriginal stories and view the ancient artwork of the Wandjina, guided by the very people whose ancestors created it.


Back on board, guests can visit the Discovery Centre for insightful lectures, briefings, Seabourn Conversations and audiovisual presentations on the vast high-definition screens 2.5m high by 10m wide. The many educational programmes are designed to deepen each traveller’s experience by expanding their knowledge of the places, people and wildlife they encounter.


More than a luxurious cruise ship – though she is that, too – Seabourn Pursuit is built for diverse environments and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that extends the ship’s global deployment and capabilities. Along with an attentive crew providing the highest level of Seabourn’s renowned service, the ship is staffed with a world-class 24-person Expedition Team composed of highly regarded wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists. The team will regularly interact with guests, illuminating the history, ecology and culture of the places they visit and offering valuable insights not only in formal presentations, but also in more casual conversations over meals, on deck during scenic cruising, or at leisure activities.

Seaborn Pursuit will be making six 10-day voyages between Broome and Darwin over the course of June, July and August 2024. In addition to The Kimberley, Seabourn Pursuit will also operate a series of voyages in 2024 throughout the South Pacific, from Chile to Melanesia, Papua New Guinea and West Papua, as well as Antarctica in late 2024 and early 2025.
