The Kimberley region is located in the remote north west of Western Australia and, when you visit, you’ll discover a truly ancient landscape with a fascinating past. Containing some of the world’s most awe inspiring natural sights, you’ll fall in love with the rugged terrain, cascading waterfalls, stunning coastline, pristine swimming holes and towering gorges. The region is also home to an incredible array of plants and animals, all of which bring the Kimberley to life. Due to the abundance of water, the best way to explore the region is with luxury Kimberley cruises aboard Ocean Dream.
Every day offers a new discovery in the Kimberley and the unique tidal currents continually transform the landscape around you. Ocean Dream has a specifically designed hull to negotiate these tidal changes with ease and it allows you to gain access into remote creeks and river systems that many vessels cannot. Try your hand at fishing for Barramundi or Threadfin Salmon, explore hidden caves containing ancient Aboriginal rock art, take a helicopter flight up to normally inaccessible fresh water holes, or simply relax in the six seater spa and take in the spectacular landscape around you. We pride ourselves in providing a luxury Kimberley cruising experience with the freedom and flexibility to suit your requirements.
You’ll experience all of the extraordinary places the Kimberley has to offer when you explore the region aboard Ocean Dream. Join us for one of our scheduled 8 or 12 day Kimberley cruises and let our experienced crew show you the sights as you relax in luxury. For a unique experience, we also offer private charters where you can develop your own itinerary for a personalised cruise. Get your friends and family together for a very special holiday!

- "Our 12 day experience with Ocean Dream was something we will always remember. The crew were extremely knowledgeable and keen to interact and have fun with the whole family. Tom, our chef, prepared an abundance of incredible food everyday, and also tailored meals to suit a young fussy eater. We watched our children grow and extend themselves in a wonderfully challenging environment, made fun, exciting and most importantly safe, by the entire Ocean Dream crew. A holiday to remember. Thank you."Jane and Tony Groves 2018

- “As well as a fabulous ship and amazing destinations, this holiday was made even more memorable because of your amazing crew. Sally was such a lovely person, so welcoming and nothing was ever too much trouble. Casey made us feel like we really were part of the family and was also an absolute champion at getting nervous passengers over tricky rock-climbing expeditions. Taylor was the most hard-working person we’ve ever met and a great fishing guide, helping the newbies and also finding all the best spots for us to claim our first-ever barramundi. Matt was charming and an excellent tour guide, skippering the tenders with precision and giving us in-depth knowledge of rock art sites. Chef Tom did an amazing job of all meals, taking care of all passengers’ needs and making sure we never ran out of cake. And Captain Nick is surely one of a kind, taking care of the ship and the itinerary (such lovely waterfall swims), the crew, the passengers, and still finding the time to organise drinks, impromptu shore picnics and a party for a 40th wedding anniversary on board. We’d have no hesitation in recommending this experience to our friends and family and wish you all the best for the rest of the season. "Peter & Katie Lennerts
- I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we have enjoyed our week’s cruise in the Montebello Islands. The boat was absolutely superb - immaculate throughout, and the crew was just terrific. They had thought carefully about the places that we could visit together with finding the best fishing spots available. Food was also delicious and plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to everybody concerned.Neil & Dianne
