about papua new guinea

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many optional ‘heli-flights’ are offered?
We offer approximately 8-10 different flights on each of our Paupa New Guinea itineraries. Heli-packages, a selection of flights the pilot recommends are 'not-to-be-missed' are a great way to maximise your enjoyment and can be booked once on-board. The Kokoda Scenic Flight option on Adventures in Paradise is subject to limited numbers due to the changing weather conditions.
What species of fish are commonly caught?
Spanish Mackerel, wahoo, tuna, coral trout & sailfish. We’ve got all the fishing gear you need onboard!
What time is embarkation & disembarkation?
Guests will be collected in Cairns city centre at approximately 0600 for a charter flight. It is HIGHLY recommended that you arrive in Cairns at least the night prior to embarkation. After disembarking in Papua New Guinea, the charter flight back to Cairns will arrive around 1700 where guests will need to clear customs and immigration.
Are transfers to & from the vessel included in the cost?
Included in the cost is the early morning coach transfer from Darwin City centre hotels to Darwin International airport for check-in as well as local transfers to and from the airport in Indonesia. On arrival back in Darwin (approximate arrival time 1700) guests make their own way from the airport as the time it takes for each guest to clear customs and immigration varies greatly.
Does SCUBA diving feature on this cruise?
Absolutely! There are fantastic opportunities to explore the many coral reefs of these amazing islands. A limited selection of diving equipment is available for hire onboard with prior arrangement. However, bringing your own personal equipment will ensure a perfect fit. Not a certified diver? Don’t worry, the snorkeling is just as good!
Do I need a passport for this voyage?
Yes. Please ensure your passport has at least 6 months validity on it after your return travel date. We will ask for this information 2-3 months prior to embarkation. General information concerning travel in PNG will be included with your guest documents. True North will arrange entry visa into PNG.
Is there any foreign currency exchange onboard?
We recommend exchanging Kina before travel. Kina is used for purchasing souvenirs, donations and resort purchases as the local villages tend to be cash only.
