Depart from Broome & cruise the Kimberley coast
See the Broome and Kimberley coastline from a new angle on one of these breathtaking Cruises. Cruising the Broome coast allows you to see sights from the sea that are not accessible by land, giving you a unique perspective on this beautiful region of Western Australia – from ancient Aboriginal art on coastal rockfaces to cruising right along the many beautiful waterfalls along the Kimberley coast.
What’s to see on a Broome Cruise?
Cruising the Kimberley coast from Broome features spectacular sights unmatched anywhere else in the country. The region is home to several cascading waterfalls, including Mitchell Falls, King George Falls, and the Horizontal Falls. While not technically waterfalls, the Horizontal Falls are a strange natural wonder that should not be missed. Water rushes through gaps in the rock gorges, and the flow changes direction with the changing of the tides.
You can also take in the Hunter River and Prince Regent River where they open out into the sea. Spend some time snorkelling or scuba diving at the Montgomery Reef, where you can see giant Barramundi and other reef-dwelling fish. As you cruise along the Kimberley coastline, you can view ancient Aboriginal rock art, some of it dating back over 50,000 years.
Planning your trip
Broome is beautiful throughout the year, but the best time to take a cruise in the area is during the dry season, which is between April and September. Cruises are not in fact available during the wet season (October to March) due to bad weather conditions, with monsoons and storms common.
Broome cruises are in high demand and fill up fast, so be sure to book your cruise as far in advance as possible to get the dates you want. Most people start booking these desirable cruises more than 12 months in advance. Starting your cruise in Broome also gives you the opportunity to start your holiday a little early and spend some time exploring the many fantastic sights and experiences Broome has to offer.
