A set itinerary is difficult to follow due to the large tidal movements of the Kimberley coast. So in the best interest and comfort of our passengers, we set our itinerary on a day by day basis. We travel mainly during daylight hours, ensuring you will not miss any of the spectacular scenery along the way. Your itinerary includes some or all of the following highlights:
Located deep within Talbot Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago are the Horizontal Waterfalls. Massive tidal movements create a waterfall effect as water banks up against one side of the narrow cliff passage, to be repeated again on the turning tide. The waterfall phenomena has been described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest natural wonders of the world”.
Crocodile Creek is an attraction visited by cruise boats exploring the Kimberley Region. The Creek has a fresh water pool with scenic falls flowing down from above. Climb up the embankment and take in the beautiful view, or enjoy a refreshing dip in one of the the beautiful waterholes.
Climb up to a saddle of rock that forms nothing short of a spectacular outdoor Aboriginal art gallery. The art is an account of the mythical Wandjina clan on the ‘Great Fish Chase’. There are images of the Wandjina spirits with their distinctive haloes and dugong, crocodiles, fish and snakes.
From here, there is a glorious view over the neighbouring Steep Island.
Ruby Falls were only recently discovered and named after the daughter of its founder. Enjoy a rejuvenating cool off under the waterfall at this isolated and scenic location.
Silica Beach is an unusual 150 m long beach, composed of pure white silica sand, the only such beach on the entire Kimberley coast. The white sand slopes offshore between the bordering headlands to deeper rock reefs, permitting easy small boat access.
As the tide drops, a raging torrent of water, cascading off the top of this 400ha reef, erupts as miles of surrounding reef appears to slowly rise out of the ocean. It’s the perfect spot to watch cormorants, egrets and sandpipers forage for sea life trapped on the surface of the reef. Below the waterline opportunistic sea turtles, reef sharks and many larger fish also take advantage of this feast.
Visit Camden Harbour, scene of a 19th-century sheep farming fiasco by early European settlers. In this rugged setting and harsh climate, the settlement failed miserably and was abandoned after less than two years.
King Cascade waterfalls in the Prince Regent River
Explore the Prince Regent River before heading to King Cascade to anchor. This is a tranquil, scenic spot with a beautiful swimming hole at the top.
King George River gorges and waterfalls
The 12km journey up the King George River reveals some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and a wealth of bird species. The almost vertical sheer canyon walls have been eroded over millions of years and look like stacks of sandstone reminiscent of a child’s building blocks. The King George River drains the Gardner Plateau and the falls are the highest single-drop falls in the whole of the Kimberley (100m or 330ft).
Casuarina Falls in the Berkeley River
11 miles of a navigable and beautiful river gorge, great bush walks, swimming holes and waterfalls. The miles of white sandy beaches at the mouth are a shell collectors fantasy and the bounty of fish and mud crab from the river will delight.
