6 Day Kimberley Essence, Broome to Ashmore Reef – Broome (Fly/Cruise)
Day One – Depart Broome
Crocodile Creek you will be collected at sunrise from your Broome accommodation and transferred to the airport where you will board a plane bound for the Buccaneer Archipelago. Once on the vessel and the safety induction has been completed, breakfast will be served on the rear deck. We will then visit a swimming hole at Crocodile Creek before steaming past the historic Koolan Island, and mooring at the top of Talbot Bay for the night.
Day Two – Horizontal Waterfalls
Following breakfast, we hit the water in one of three custom built tenders to tackle Barramundi, Fingermark and the mighty Mangrove Jack. Once the last fish is bagged, we make our way down to the exhilarating Horizontal Falls, to view what David Attenborough has aptly described as one of the ‘Greatest natural wonders of the world’. We zip through the falls and up the back of Cyclone Creek for a scenic boat trip past the striking rock formations before departing for Doubtful Bay.
Day Three – Aboriginal Art
Wake up in the stunning locale that is Raft Point. We head out for a short hike to view an enchanting old Aboriginal art site and take in the fabulous view over the bay. Refuel with a delicious lunch as the crew are busy preparing for your afternoon fishing session at Three Ways River system. Back on board MV Diversity, we set course for Red Cone Creek.
Day Four – Red Cone Creek
The fishing gear will be prepped by the crew during breakfast ready for our morning fishing session. After lunch, we explore the area to take in the wildlife, including crocs and a vast array of bird life that inhabit the area. Top off a spectacular day with a rejuvenating swim at one of the many different swimming holes at Ruby Falls.
Day Five – Montgomery Reef
We set sail early from Doubtful Bay bound for the Montgomery Reef. Seeing the reef rise out of the water exposing the sharks, turtles and sting rays in the shallows is truly unique. We then make our way back to the Buccaneer Archipelago and pull into the picturesque Silver Gull Creek for the evening.
