Seabourn Pursuit arrives Down Under for inaugural Kimberley season

Seabourn expedition vessel sails into Darwin for the first time

Seabourn Pursuit entered Australian waters for the first time, sailing into Darwin in the Northern Territory this morning [11 June 2024]. The arrival of Seabourn’s second of two expedition ships marks the start of the cruise line’s highly-anticipated inaugural season in the Kimberley region, which commences on 12 June when the ship sets sail on the first of six 10-day voyages between Darwin and Broome from June to August 2024.

Experiencing the Kimberley with Seabourn Pursuit will provide travellers access to remote locations such as Ngula Jar Island; the most picturesque views throughout the entire journey as the 132-suite ship weaves through the towering cliffs and gorges; and navigation by a world-class expedition team of experts through the most exhilarating nature and cultural experiences in the region.

Seabourn recently announced the Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owners as godparents of Seabourn Pursuit, making history as the first ever cruise line to appoint Aboriginal Traditional Owners as godparents. As part of this appointment, Seabourn will make a donation to assist Wunambal Gaambera to develop a self-sustaining industry, producing authentic works of art and craft by Wunambal Gaambera artists to sell.
