Cruise the Kimberley Coast
Book a cruise of the Kimberley region and prepare for an adventure you’ll never forget. Touring the Kimberley from the water, you can see and do more than you ever could do charting your course by land, discovering unseen areas of the Kimberley that landlocked tourists can’t, like the outstanding Buccaneer Archipelago, the many waterfalls in the area and ancient rock art on coastal rocks and caves.
Whether you’re turtle spotting at Montgomery Reef; fishing for barramundi; traversing Mitchell Falls; not to mention seeing King George Falls, the Horizontal Waterfalls, Hunter River, Prince Regent River and so much more – wherever you turn in the Kimberley, there are sights to amaze and experiences to treasure.
Best time of year to cruise the Kimberley & how far in advance to book
The best time to cruise the Kimberley is between April and October (during the dry season). By May you can tend to rely on the rains having stopped, and the reduced humidity means the daytime temperature averages a pleasant 33°C, while July and August offer the best chance for uninterrupted blue skies and slightly higher daytime temperatures.
You cannot travel on a Kimberley cruise in the wet season (November through March) as cruise vessels in the area do not run during these months. Wet season temperatures average 37°C with 90 percent humidity not uncommon, and storms and monsoons probable, meaning weather conditions are not safe for enjoyable sea trips.
Most cruises are booked a year in advance, and spaces fill up fast. To secure the peak months it’s best to book 12 months in advance or longer, as even by Feb/March each year there is a rush for places for the following year’s dry season. Call us today to check availability for your chosen dates!
