What is a hybrid solar eclipse?
Most solar eclipses are either total (when the moon is close enough to completely obscure the sun, revealing an otherworldly circle of light) or annular (when the moon is a little further away from the Earth and does not fully obscure the sun, instead creating a "ring of fire" effect).

A hybrid solar eclipse is a very rare event that can be viewed on Earth roughly once a decade; when the moon is just close enough that - depending on your vantage point - it can transition from an annular eclipse into a total one!

This cruise will give you a unique vantage point to see this "King of Eclipses" off the coast of Exmouth, the only place on mainland Australia where this eclipse will be visible in more than 1,000 years.* An event not to be missed!

*Whilst every effort will be made to position the ship in view of a total solar eclipse, this is not guaranteed.
