PONANT announces new sailing expeditions in the Kimberley onboard iconic three-masted yacht Le Ponant for 2023

Born out of a desire to create a more exclusive and unique experience for guests to journey through their own remote and ancient Kimberley landscapes in luxury, the Le Ponant sailing experience has been meticulously crafted in an extensive and exclusive partnership with Australia's prestigious Paspaley Group.

Commencing operations in April 2023, PONANT will once again push the boundaries of expedition travel with new bespoke itineraries, showcasing the immense beauty of the Kimberley onboard the 32-passenger luxury sailing yacht. Led by PONANT's world-renowned expedition and destination experts, guests will be able to experience a breathtaking sailing environment as well as shore landings on our state-of-the-art Zodiac boats. To add to the unique experience, an exclusive and private scenic flight onboard one of Paspaley's vintage Grumman Mallard flying boats will take guests from or to their embarkation point, as well as private access to Paspaley's pearl operations in Kuri Bay.

Le Ponant will join the company's two other small luxury expedition ships Le Lapérouse and Le Soléal, already present in the region, having restarted post-pandemic Kimberley operations in April 2022.

Tailored by expedition leaders and naturalist guides over a raft of new itineraries, PONANT's expertise and signature travel visions onboard Le Ponant highlight the unique mix of adventure, sustainability and refined French-inspired service and hospitality. 

Mick Fogg, Director of Expeditions and Destination Development, Asia Pacific, said the Kimberley luxury sailings have been crafted to be fully flexible itineraries.

NYC & Company Invites Visitors to Explore the Bronx Like a New Yorker

New York City's official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the five boroughs of New York City, invites locals and visitors alike to Bronx Like a New Yorker, by exploring the borough's many offerings.
Just a train ride north of Manhattan, the Bronx offers everything from the Bronx Zoo to world-famous Yankee Stadium. Take a stroll on the Grand Concourse, or take a ferry from Manhattan to an idyllic waterfront spot called Clason Point.

The Bronx is loaded with history: George Washington slept here in the 18th century, poet Edgar Allan Poe lived here in the 19th century, and hip-hop music was born here in the 20th century. The borough also has 7,000 acres of park land (about 25 percent of its total area), from glorious gardens like Wave Hill and the New York Botanical Garden to Van Cortlandt Park, famed for its cross-country running trails.
A unique and lovely choice for accommodations in the Bronx is the boutique Opera House Hotel. It's located in a renovated historic theater that once hosted entertainment legends like Harry Houdini and the Marx Brothers. The hotel has 60 rooms, a gym, free breakfast, concierge service, and it's located near two subway stations: 149th Street-Grand Concourse and Third Avenue-149th Street.

The Bronx is also home to hundreds of restaurants, many of them friendly mom-and-pop establishments offering authentic cuisine from around the world, whether it's Colombian sancocho at La Masa; Mexican fare at Taqueria Tlaxcalli; or Italian food on Arthur Avenue. The red-and-white Michelin logo can be found on the door at SUYO Gastrofusion.
