Western Australia's Montebello Islands
DURATION:8 Days/ 7 NightsREGION:Australia, New Zealand & PacificSHIP:Reef Prince
Join the stylish 36-passenger Reef Prince on an eight day expedition discovering Western Australia's rarely-visited Murion, Montebellos and Mackerel Islands. Departing from Exmouth in October 2021, you will explore waters offering some of the most colourful, hard and soft coral gardens on Western Australia's coast. SCUBA divers and snorkellers will also enjoy the opportunity to come face to face with giant potato cod, manta rays and turtles, making this a diving and snorkelling paradise. By day, enjoy brilliant tropical wonderlands with the pristine beaches and islands alive with numerous types of fish, flora and fauna.
Anchoring in secluded turquoise waters fringed by miles of untouched beautiful beaches, you'll go ashore to watch hundreds of mating turtles or catch your own seafood medley. Whilst cruising, do not miss the possibility of seeing dolphins, humpback or pilot whales and dugongs. All the Islands hold their own special beauty, unique attractions and history. They offer some of the world’s best and plentiful fishing grounds, with dive areas that compare to the best on the planet. Come and relax surrounded by islands whilst dining on local seafood delights of tropical crayfish, coral trout, mud crabs and calamari.
