Day 2: Buccaneer Archipelago, Dugong Bay, Talbot Bay

Wake up amongst the thousands of islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago. In and around Dugong Bay, we take a scenic tender excursion and cool off with a refreshing swim in one of the freshwater pools. Around the corner lies Talbot Bay, home to one of the icons of the Kimberley coast, the spectacular Horizontal Falls. Take a tender

Day 3: Surprise Falls, Secure Bay

Mid-morning you will visit Surprise Falls for a refreshing swim. Then
enter Secure Bay and 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.

Day 4: Montgomery Reef, Sale River & Raft Point

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.

Day 5: Doubtful Bay, Red Cone Creek, Camden Sound

This is another day packed with adventure as we cruise towards
Three Ways for Barramundi fishing and mud crabbing. Further

Day 6: Camden Harbour, Rothsay Water

Early morning we take you pelagic fishing or join our guides in
