Testimonials

Dear Maria and Bill, Words cannot express adequately the intense experience you have provided to us all on our Kimberley tour. We have stayed in the most beautiful spots, seen amazing aboriginal art, caught fish (yes, a memory NEVER to be forgotten!!!) smelt the mangroves, listened to the silence, swum in creeks, beautiful beaches, seen wildlife as it should be seen in its natural environment – lemon sharks, crocodiles, a huge variety of fish, turtles, sea eagles etc. Thank you so much for sharing your love of the area and giving us a glimpse of what the area has to offer. The huge tides (10.7m) are awesome and yet due to all your detailed planning and organization they did not impede on a wonderful experience. THANK YOU. We hope we catch up again before too long.

Thank you Bill and Maria, for the trip of a lifetime! Cruising on the Lady M was akin to taking a ride on a magic carpet along the fabulous Kimberley coast. We floated past rust coloured cliffs of rugged grandeur, explored tranquil rivers, creeks, and inlets inhabited by crocodiles, lemon sharks, mud crabs and fish. Bathed in cool, crystal clear rock pools, showered under cascading waterfalls, and were inspired and amazed by the incredible ancient Aboriginal rock art.

Thanks also to your stellar crew for helping make the cruise all the more enjoyable.

This has been a truly unique experience in which we were challenged, stimulated, pampered and nourished with your fresh, healthy and delicious food. Reflecting on this trip will provide wonderful memories and friendships which will last the rest of our lives, for you may leave the Kimberley, but the Kimberley will never leave you. Carpe Diem!

Tony and Lyn Edis, Waroona, Western Australia

There are a few things I would like to tell you about our experience in using both your company and that of  the Lady M.

Firstly Bruce I would like to thank you wholeheartedly. At all times you were extremely helpful, informative and pleasant to work with. I was a bit tentative about booking long distance but to be honest it was easier and more pleasant than previous occasions when I have booked through a local travel agency. Our trip could not have gone more smoothly.

Secondly Bill and his crew  on the Lady M were unbelievable. Bev is in her 80s (I hope she does not mind me saying) and the crew went out of their way to make sure the trip was not just as pleasant as possible but also acted at all times to ensure that she had all possible support to enable her to participate in any  of the many options available (without at any time being overpowering or condescending) They were extremely efficient and wonderfully friendly. The group was wonderful. I cannot imagine a more pleasant group of fellow holiday makers – I have no doubt that this was made possible not just by their natural friendliness but also by the wonderful relaxed atmosphere on the boat that resulted from Bill and his team’s efforts.

This was my third trip to the Kimberleys but will not be the last as my husband and I are planning to take the Broome/Darwin in the next couple of years  trip on the Lady M and will be in contact when we know our plans more fully.

Thank you again Bruce
