Itinerary


Monday 19th April 2021

Tuesday 20th April 2021

Lacepede Islands

A group of four islands known as The Lacepedes are classified a Class A nature reserve and known for their rookery of brown boobies and roseate terns as well as other species of birds. The low lying islands are also an important breeding and nesting habitat for green turtles.

Wednesday 21st April 2021

Horizontal Falls & Buccaneer Archipelago

The Horizontal Falls are created as the ocean thunders through a narrow gorge in the McLarty Ranges. As the tide changes water is forcibly pushed through the bottleneck, creating a rushing horizontal waterfall of swiftly flowing seawater.

In the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago you’ll see evidence of massive geological forces in the ancient rock formations before concluding this remarkable day with sunset drinks at Nares Point.

Thursday 22nd April 2021

Raft Point & Ruby Falls

Raft Point guards the entrance to sheltered Doubtful Bay, which harbours significant sites such as the ancient Wandjina rock art galleries. Find wonder and history in the ancient stories contained within the rock art. Later, a visit to Red Cone Creek offers the active an opportunity to climb up to a freshwater swimming hole overlooking Ruby Falls.


Other sites we may visit in Doubtful Bay include the mighty Sale River and Steep Island.

Friday 23rd April 2021

Montgomery Reef

Get ready for a thrilling experience at Montgomery Reef as the sea rapidly recedes in a mammoth tide. The reef rises from the ocean in a cascade of rushing water, revealing the flat topped reef and leaving you breathless with wonder and excitement.

Opportunistic birds take advantage of the marine life left exposed in rock pools, while turtles and larger marine life may also be spotted.

Saturday 24th April 2021

Prince Regent River & Kings Cascade

Running on a fault line the spectacular Prince Regent River is accessible only by sea. The area is a haven for native mammals and birds and is our access point for the magnificent King Cascade, a terraced waterfall. Falling from a considerable height and spanning a wide distance, the water tumbles down a staggered terrace of Kimberley sandstone, surrounded by grasses, mosses and ferns. It is an iconic Kimberley sight.

Sunday 25th April 2021

Bigge Island & Careening Bay

Picture a harbour, dotted with islands lined with mangroves and monsoon rainforests, set against a backdrop of ochre hued escarpments. This is a truly spectacular location. White-bellied sea eagles and other birds of prey are often seen here and, at low tide, expansive mudflats reveal large populations of mud-skippers, mangrove crabs and even a crocodile or two.

Monday 26th April 2021

Hathways's Hideaway & Mitchell Falls

Carved through layers of sandstone Mitchell Falls descends over four tiers, creating pools of emerald green on each level. Stand and savour the serenity of this ancient landscape. Visiting Mitchell Falls is only possible by taking the optional helicopter flight (at additional cost).

Alternatively, explore the sandstone caves of Hathway’s Hideaway, a maze of weathered tunnels, arches and columns that was once an Aboriginal midden.

Tuesday 27th April 2021

​Vansittart Bay & Jar Island

Vansittart Bay is home to many cultural and historically significant sites like the remarkable Jar Island Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) rock art galleries, estimated to be around 15,000 years old. Nearby, on the Anjo Peninsula, we explore the well preserved wreckage of a US Air Force C-53 Skytrooper aircraft.

Wednesday 28th April 2021

King George River & Falls

The mighty King George River plunges over an ancient sandstone cliff into tidal waters, forming the remarkable King George Falls – 80m high twin falls. We are here at the height of the Kimberley’s spectacular waterfall season, so get ready for a somewhat wet welcome as your Zodiac cruises under the mist of the falls!
