Your Adventure Quest begins on-board the Kimberley Quest II, where you will be welcomed aboard by your captain and crew. Enjoy a relaxing drink as you watch the sun dip below the horizon, while cruising past the famous Cable Beach.
This morning will find us crossing the vast King Sound, cruising through the thousand islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago; this is your first taste of the Kimberley. Cool off with a refreshing swim in Dugong Bay, followed by a scenic tender excursion. Around the corner lies Talbot Bay, home to one of the icons of the Kimberley coast, the spectacular Horizontal Waterfalls. Take a tender and head in for an up-close and exhilarating ride through this natural phenomenon. In the afternoon take a scenic excursion up the back of Cyclone Creek to marvel at the amazing rock formations.
Mid morning you will visit Surprise Falls for a refreshing swim. Then enter Secure Bay, watch the incredible tidal movements as we cruise through many spectacular whirlpools. Take a scenic tender excursion to witness the colours of ancient sandstone cliffs and the stunning Kimberley Rose. Late afternoon get your first taste of fishing for giant trevally, mackerel, tuna and queenfish.
Today we cruise to the amazing Montgomery Reef which covers more than 300km², making it Australia's largest inshore reef. Watch as the tide falls right before your eyes, creating a spectacular waterfall effect. Take a tender ride to view many marine species, including turtles and sea birds. Later we explore the Sale River taking an excursion upstream for a dip in the spring-fed rainforest pools. On the journey home we view ancient rock art from the tenders. In the afternoon we cruise towards Steep Island, anchor below Raft Point and walk to the caves perched on the hill. Here is some of the finest well-preserved Wandjina art in the Kimberley. From the top we have an amazing view of the Kimberley Coast as the sun begins to set, capturing this unique landscape at its best.
This is another day packed with adventure as we cruise towards Three Ways for barramundi fishing and mud crabbing. Further exploration takes us to Ruby Falls, located off Red Cone Creek. Enjoy this picturesque freshwater swimming hole, filled with water lilies and smooth water-worn rocks to sit on and take in the tranquil surrounds. Marvel at the antics of infant whales as we cruise through the humpback breeding sanctuary of Camden Sound.
Early morning we take you pelagic fishing or join our guides in search of Kimberley rock oysters. Afterwards 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. Mid afternoon we cruise towards Rothsay Water to take a tender excursion exploring ancient Bradshaw and Wandjina art.
Cruising up the Prince Regent River, marvel at the pristine waterway that cuts through sandstone cliffs and gorges. We arrive at the King Cascade which is a spring-fed waterfall, surrounded by lush ferns and a myriad of wildlife. Climb above the falls for an unforgettable swim in a massive crystal clear pool. Be rewarded with a breathtaking view over the magnificent Prince Regent River in the distance - wilderness adventuring at its best! Late afternoon join our guides for an excursion to Cathedral Falls, while spotting crocodiles and flying foxes. Alternatively fish the Price Regent River which is renowned for big barra and threadfin salmon.
Enjoy a tender excursion around historic Hanover Bay and learn about the naming of Treachery Head and the exploits of explorer George Grey (1837). Cruise out past the scenic sandstone and basalt islands of Brunswick Bay. Marvel at the remote seabird colony of Booby Island and try your luck at pelagic fishing.
Spend the day exploring the spectacular crystal clear beaches of Heywood and Champagny Island. Visit a historic secret radar base from World War II, which is a truly fascinating heritage site. Walk on a deserted beach then enjoy a refreshing swim. The final leg of your journey takes you towards Cape Leveque as you savour your last evening enjoying the sunset, whilst marvelling at the spectacular humpback whales.
Arrive into the Port of Broome at approximately 7.00am. Enjoy your last breakfast onboard, then wave goodbye to the crew of the Kimberley Quest II. Disembarkation is at approximately 8.00am, where a courtesy vehicle will transfer you to your accommodation.
