The newest of the PONANT EXPLORER fleet of six vessels, Le Jacques-Cartier will make its Australian debut, joining Le Lapérouse for the very first time in the country.
Commencing in April 2024, PONANT’s program of 22 departures between Broome and Darwin uncovers immersive expeditions through the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Kimberley. It’s 10-night Australia’s Iconic Kimberley itinerary will showcase the most picturesque parts of the Kimberley coastline.
