A courtesy vehicle will pick you up from your accommodation around 4:00pm transferring you to Ocean Dream, where you will be introduced and welcomed on board by your captain and crew. Begin your cruise with a cold drink whilst viewing the beautiful sunset off Cable Beach. Unpack, meet your fellow adventurers and enjoy a delicious dinner served on the rear deck, then get settled whilst we cruise during the night up the coast past Cape Leveque.
Day 2: Silica Beach, Crocodile Creek
Enjoy a delicious breakfast whilst taking in the beautiful scenery as we cruise to Silica beach located at Hidden island part of the Kimberley’s remote and Buccaneer Archipelago, consisting of more than 800 islands. This pristine white beach consists of the purest silica sand in the world. Your first trip ashore will take place in our expedition tenders to marvel the beauty of this white sandy beach. We’ll then set off to Crocodile Creek for a swim in a fresh pool at the base of a beautiful waterfall. Back on board a BBQ lunch will be served before we set off and anchor in a protected bay ready for sunset.
Day 3: Talbot Bay – Horizontal Waterfalls
We’ll cruise through to Talbot Bay home of the magnificent and famous Horizontal Falls. If the tides are right you can take a tender and head in for an up-close look or take an exhilarating ride through this natural phenomenon on a fast jet boat ride. Join a scenic excursion up Cyclone Creek to marvel at the amazing rock formations.
Day 4: Raft Point, Red Cone Creek – Ruby Falls, Sale River
We put on our walking shoes and take a trek up to the caves perched high on the hill, this is a site of Aboriginal rock art. Back on board we continue our cruise to Red Cone Creek and head out on our expedition tenders to experience the beautiful Ruby Falls. Later we will explore the Sale River, our tenders will take you up stream for a closer look at the stunning orange and red sandstone cliff’s as we wind our way through narrow gorges. Keen anglers can yet again try their luck at fishing.
Day 5: Montgomery Reef, Langii
Today we’ll take an unforgettable look at the spectacular sights of Montgomery Reef. Watch as the tide drops, creating a waterfall effect as the reef rises out of the water. Jump in the tenders to observe the many marine species, including turtles.
The afternoon will be spent around Langii, where we can see the ‘Petrified Warriors’ and swim in crystal clear waters.
Day 6: Camden Harbour, Sheep Island, Camp Creek
A visit to Camden Harbour and Sheep Island will start this day, the first attempted European settlement in the Kimberley. You’ll marvel at the scenery as we cruise through Port George and Treachery Passage to Saint George’s Basin. After lunch we’ll head up Camp Creek for a quick trek to swim at the base of another wonderful waterfall.
Day 7: Prince Regent River – King’s Cascade
We’ll spend the morning fishing and exploring the surrounding tributaries, before anchoring right next to the cascading waterfall surrounded by lush ferns.
At the top of the falls you can swim in a multitude of crystal clear freshwater pools and experience the magical waterfalls which feed them. The evening will be spent cruising out to Careening Bay.
Day 8: Careening Bay, Hunter River, Mitchell Falls
We visit Careening Bay, the site of a carved boab tree. In 1820 the captain Phillip Parker King careened his ship the HMC Mermaid to repair her hull. We then continue our day exploring the spectacular Hunter River, one of the most scenic rivers with amazing sandstone cliffs, ancient rock art and crocodiles. This is also where you say your final goodbyes as you enjoy a scenic flight over the Mitchell Falls. At the Mitchell Plateau airstrip you will board a light aircraft and return back to Broome midafternoon, where one of our team will transfer you to your Broome accommodation.
