TRUE NORTH and TRUE NORTH II are purpose built to access wilderness areas – bigger ships cannot go where they can. 
Multiple adventure boats take you away in small groups to experience wilderness up-close and the luxury of numerous tenders also means that you have greater opportunity to do “what you want, when you want”! And, to add another dimension to adventure, most itineraries feature an on-board helicopter.
Daily activities can include snorkelling, diving, fishing, hiking, picnics, natural history, cultural activities and scenic helicopter flights.
The land of the unexpected

The TRUE NORTH Adventure Cruise first visited untamed Papua New Guinea in 2005. Since then we have continued to refine our itineraries to ensure that they are filled with only the highest quality experiences.

The highlight being countless encounters with the overwhelming hospitality of those who are fortunate to call this untouched paradise home.
