Your Kimberley adventure starts with a pickup from your accommodation and a drive to Cygnet Bay, on the Dampier Peninsula. Enjoy a guided tour of the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm before the skipper and crew welcome you aboard MV Melantre!
Your cruise departs Cygnet Bay for a relaxed afternoon across King Sound.
Over the seven full days we cruise up the Kimberley coast from Cygnet Bay, north of Broome along the Dampier Peninsular, you’ll have plenty of time to witness some of the sights the north west of WA is world renowned for.
You’ll see up-close a staggering array of wildlife on the daily excursions, ranging from estuarine crocodiles (the “salty”), sea turtles, dolphins and other marine life to the huge variety of colourful and unique birdlife.
We’ll show you the spectacle of Montgomery Reef, where twice a day as the tide ebbs, the reef is exposed and water flows off in mini-waterfalls.
Along the way you’ll have the opportunity to swim in clear freshwater waterholes (safe from the toothy inhabitants) as well as discovering rock art left behind by ancient custodians.
There’ll be time also for fishing the pristine Kimberley waters, both aboard the MV Melantre, as well as from select shore-based locations. A hook-up is almost guaranteed!
A visit to this area wouldn’t be complete without experiencing “one of the greatest natural wonders of the world”, as described by Sir David Attenborough … the famous Horizontal Falls.
Day 2 to 6
Your cruise arrives back into Cygnet Bay. It’s then a fond farewell from the skipper and crew as we transfer you and your travelling companions back to Broome, to your accommodation
