Kick off the New Year by indulging all your senses on a unique cruise along the South Australian Coast.
They say that the way you start the New Year is an indication of how the rest of the year will roll for you! So, if you enjoy the finer things in life, and if Kangaroo Island is on your bucket-list, the True North has the ultimate eight-night cruise to kick off the year just right.
The crew of the True North, Australia’s experts in adventure-cruising, have created the Southern Safari for those who appreciate the finer things in life and who want to indulge all five senses.
The Safari begins in Adelaide with a coach transfer to McLaren Vale for morning tea amidst the vineyards at the Red Poles art gallery. Then it’s onto Lloyd Brother’s famed olive groves before lunch at Penny’s Hill vineyard – a showcase of the best in local fare.
Arriving at Wirrina Cove late afternoon, guests are welcomed aboard the True North with cocktails and an introduction to their stylish cabins ahead of the first of many onboard culinary delights.
Awake the next morning to the beauty of Kangaroo Island, home to some of Australia’s most unique flora and fauna and opportunity for many cherished close encounters.
True North journeys are all about adventure, exploring and relaxing and the Southern Safari itinerary offers generous lashings of all. There’s cage diving with great white sharks in the Port Lincoln area, fishing in the anglers’ paradise of the islands off the Eyre Peninsula for monster tuna, huge Samson fish and giant yellow tail kingfish, and oyster devouring in famed Coffin Bay.
With six dedicated expedition boats, guests have much greater opportunity to do what they want, when they want, with an enthusiastic and experienced crew chaperoning every step of the way.
For the serious foodie the trip includes the chance to not only fish for your supper but to also spend time with the ship’s chefs learning to prepare revered delicacies such as King George whiting.
“The Southern Safari is the ultimate anglers’ holiday, the areas visited are rich in some of the best eating fish that you can catch and all you need to do is haul them in – our attentive crew will look after everything else,” said Peter Trembath, North Star Cruises general manager.
The Southern Safari departs Adelaide on 14 January 2013 and includes a flight back to Adelaide from Ceduna at the cruise conclusion. Prices start at $6,995 per person.
