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:
Once we set off from Broome it’s not long and we are cruising through the Buccaneer Archipelago, a true wilderness region encompassing the world-renown Horizontal Falls and Montgomery Reef.
Be amazed at the tidal power of this natural phenomenon. Balance the fast pace of the Falls with a relaxing boat tour floating past the unusual and colourful lines to the ancient cliffs of Cyclone Creek. Observe the gentle lemon sharks surround the boat and feed the fish.
Arriving on a lowering tide, we anchor in the centre of the “jewel” of the Kimberley coast. Enjoy an up-close tour in the tenders as the cascading water exposes the more than 400 sq km of coral reef rising from the sea. Spot the turtles as they poke their heads up for a quick look at their visitors. Keep and eye out for dugong, sharks, manta rays and the colourful fish visible in the clear water. A uniquely tranquil experience you will always remember.
When anchoring in Red Cone Creek we are often visited by the local ever-watchful crocodiles. Here we travel upstream in the dinghies for about 8 km for a fresh water swim at Ruby Falls, a chilly but refreshing dip under the falls and perhaps a mud pack for the ladies.
King George River and Falls
As soon as the tide allows, the Lady M will glide slowly and silently upstream this breathtakingly majestic river lined with red sandstone cliffs and overhanging rocks. As the much-anticipated King George Falls comes into view the sounds of amazement fill the front viewing deck. Anchoring overnight allows for an early morning climb to view the river and falls from above and indulge in a dip in the lovely cool clear pools above the falls.
King Cascade waterfall in the Prince Regent River
Cruise up the mighty Prince Regent through the many tidal whirlpools to the famous and picturesque King Cascades. The Lady M gently manoeuvres into the small gap in the riverbank directly under the falls for a refreshing shower and an opportunity for many photos.
Travel further up the river on the tenders to check the fishing opportunities and if time allows, a swim in the refreshing Surveyors Creek.
Fishing should be good at this time of the year, being the start to the barramundi season we should see some exciting action. Fishing is enjoyed throughout the cruise and the catch is cooked on the barbecue while you enjoy a drink and chat around the bar.
