Whilst the skipper steams out of Broome, relax with a drink and nibbles overlooking a view of the famous cable beach, the gateway to the Kimberley.
Day Two – Horizontal Waterfalls
Wake up to the delights of Yampi Sound. Start your day with breakfast, then depending on tide, board one of our custom built tenders to collect black lip oysters, or fish the headlands or creeks. Back on board, MV Diversity II will then make its way to the well-known swimming hole at Crocodile Creek created by the iron ore workers living on Koolan Island some 40 years ago. Lunch will be served while the MV Diversity II moves through the Koolan channel. We will continue via Dugong Bay into Talbot Bay where you can experience the thrill of the amazing Horizontal Falls. After enjoying a sumptuous evening meal the MV Diversity II will steam to its nights and enjoy a restful night under the Kimberley night sky.
Day Three: Aboriginal Art
Awake to the aroma of fresh coffee and breakfast being prepared. Once you are energized, MV Diversity II’s crew will land you on the beach and escort you to view the gallery of Aboriginal Art that tells a visual story of an ancient race of water people that lived in the area thousands of years ago. On your descent, stop and enjoy the view across the water. Once back on board it’s a short steam into Doubtful Bay where you spend the day pursuing your choice of activities fishing, mud crabbing or exploring the many fresh water swimming holes the Kimberley keeps secret.
Day Four: Red Cone Creek
Depart Red Cone Creek early in the day and enjoy a short steam to nearby Montgomery Reef. MV Diversity we will drop anchor in a channel carved out of the reef by the tidal activity over millions of years. Once anchored watch the wonder of the reef rising out of the ocean and the water cascading into the channel. Guests will then have the choice to fish the run-offs or just take the opportunity to photograph a special part of the Kimberley.
Day Five: Deception Bay
Wake up to Deception bay on the low tide where guests will have the opportunity to fish and gather some Black Tip Kimberley Oysters.
