    What to Expect

Sandwiches, snacks, soft drinks, and water are available for purchase onboard, and there are limited food options on Bathurst Island. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as sea turtles, dolphins, and seabirds. The Tiwi Islands provide important breeding grounds for a variety of native Australian animals.
