If you’ve always wanted to experience Australia's Kimberley coast, but unsure if a small ship cruise is right for you, why not join the Kimberley Quest II this October for a four day ‘Taste of the Kimberley’ voyage.
New for 2018, these mini Kimberley cruises aboard one of our favourite ships will see you visit some of the most breathtaking locations in the southern Kimberley. Highlights of the journey include the opportunity to tour a fully-operational Australian South Sea Pearl farm at Cygnet Bay, cruise through the Buccaneer Archipelago’s ‘Thousand Islands’ and experience must-see icons including the incredible Horizontal Falls at Talbot Bay and Montgomery Reef, Australia's largest inshore reef.
There will also be plenty of time to discover the ancient indigenous rock art of the Kimberley and to fish for the elusive barramundi in one of the many tidal creeks or inlets the Kimberley has to offer. On each day you will be ably guided by an expert Australian crew, with a fully-qualified naturalist joining each cruise to provide insights into the things you will be seeing and doing along the way.
When you cruise aboard the Kimberley Quest II you are always guaranteed a personalised and intimate experience. Accommodating just 18 travellers in total comfort the ‘KQII’ is purpose-built for discovering the wonders of this ancient coastline. Catering to such a small group of travellers allows the captain to tailor the itinerary to ensure each and every traveller has the best experience possibly. From fishing excursions and mud-crabbing in the early morning through to hiking, swimming and spotting Wandjina and Bradshaw art, these Kimberley ‘taster cruises’ are sure to have you coming back for more!
Speaking of tastes, the cuisine aboard Kimberley Quest II is equally as memorable as the Kimberley’s stunning landscapes. The menu is designed with variety in mind and you can expect the ship’s talented chef to serve up three meals each day with tasty treats and snacks in between. Should you be lucky enough to reel in a ‘barra or a mangrove jack, or happen upon some oysters or crabs, you can expect to see them featuring on that evening’s dinner menu. You simply cannot get fresher than that!
For a small ship, Kimberley Quest II has a surprising amount of space. With both indoor and al fresco dining areas, you can relax while enjoying the amazing cuisine and the ever-changing backdrop. Inside, the air-conditioned indoor dining room and saloon is an excellent location to sit down and enjoy a delicious meal with views through full length windows, whilst the outdoor dining area offers a relaxed environment complete with a soft ocean breeze.
