Broome & The Kimberley

Commencing in April 2023, Ponant's flagship yacht Le Ponant will offer luxury sailing expeditions exploring hidden corners of The Kimberley coastline including an exclusive Paspaley pearl farm experience in Kuri Bay. With only 16 staterooms and suites for up 32 guests, you'll feel like you're on your own private yacht, with plenty of space to enjoy Le Ponant's five-star facilities. Le Ponant guests have access to an indoor and outdoor bar and lounge, a restaurant, and an onboard spa and wellness space. Personalised service is guaranteed with Le Ponant featuring an impressive 1:1 guest-to-crew ratio. Unlike larger ships, Le Ponant isn't restricted to scheduled ports of call, with the weather and ocean conditions instead influencing each day's bespoke itinerary. The yacht features four Zodiacs for excursions to Kimberley sites with the yacht's specialist guides, and back on deck, there is equipment for water-based activities ranging from snorkelling and diving to glass bottom kayaks.
