1

Departure - Sunday June 9th, 2018: Broome & Derby

A bus will be organised to pick up all guests in Broome for transfer to Derby Jetty. If you are staying in Derby, you will be picked up on the way to the jetty. After you have been welcomed on board you can settle into your cabin, familiarize yourself with the boat and enjoy the scenery as we cruise to the top of King Sound.
2

Silica Beach

Near the entrance to King Sound lies Silica Beach which boasts pure white sands and clear blue water. It’s the kind of beach no one imagines being found in an island paradise. If the crew think it’s safe, enjoy a dip in the shallows or just take a walk on this fabulous beach.
3

Silvergull Creek & Squatters Arms

Travelling down Silvergull Creek brings you to Squatters Arms, where a unique couple, Phil & Marion, made their home for around 20 years after they sailed in one day and discovered this beautiful spot with its freshwater springs. Sadly, Marion passed away in 2014, but there are managers there to welcome you. You can take a stroll in the rainforest that Phil & Marion created or just relax in their spring fed tank with amazing views.
4

Yampi Sound & Crocodile Creek

Yampi Sound contains islands (Iron, Koolan and Cockatoo) which boast some of the richest iron ore deposits in the world. When mining operations existed on Koolan Island, the miners would get away to Crocodile Creek with its beautiful rock pools fed by fresh waterfalls. Situated above the creek, access is via a ladder bolted into the rock. This means that, despite the name of the creek, the pools have no crocodiles so are an ideal place for a swim.
5

Talbot Bay & the Horizontal Falls

Talbot Bay is home to the famous Horizontal Falls. The region’s massive tides create a spectacular scene, sending huge volumes of water pouring through two narrow chasms in the land formation when the tides reach peak flow in both rising and falling conditions. With up to 10mts of height difference between the waters of each of the two inland bays and the sea, as the water pushes through to two chasms it creates a mass of whirlpools, boils and raging currents. In Cyclone Creek, the incredible marine life includes impressive Tawny Nurse sharks which often come to greet Discovery One.
6

Raft Point

Raft Point was so named because of the Indigenous people who were spotted with their rafts used for hunting turtles, rays and dugongs. This is home to some ancient and well preserved Wandjina cave paintings. We walk to the caves, where you will take in the breathtaking views over Doubtful Bay and Steep Island. This walk is approx 300mts with a relatively steep gradient. Some people might need a hiking stick.
7

Montgomery Reef

North West of Raft Point is Montgomery Reef. This 400sq km reef can emerge up to 4mts above the waterline at low tide, creating a visual spectacle of waterfalls and sea life. Several small islands dot the reef and support rich mangroves, crocodiles, turtles, birds and fish.
8

Langgi Beach

Travelling NE we reach Langgi Beach – a very significant Aboriginal site. Kimberley sandstone has eroded into amazing rock formations that nature has carved over millions of years with a multitude of shapes and colours. Wander among these natural sculptures and hear the Aboriginal stories associated with the site.
9

Samson Inlet

Further north is Sampson Inlet which leads into a monsoonal rainforest pocket with almost permanent fresh water. Many previous passengers have called this the most beautiful spot on the Kimberley coast. Keen photographers should remember their cameras!
10

Hanover Bay & Camden Harbour

Within Hanover Bay are the pristine sands of Hanover Beach. It is here, in 1838, that Lt. George Grey unloaded his Timor ponies and began the first land based expedition of North West Australia in search of the great inland sea. The journey soon ended when he was speared by Aborigines. Despite this, Lt Grey reported back positively describing the area as ‘lush and fertile’. This glowing report encouraged a group of optimistic farmers to establish a new settlement in Camden Harbour in 1864. This was a total disaster from the start. The ruins of that settlement, which lasted only 9 months, can still be seen and the graves of some of these tough pioneers can be found on nearby Sheep Island.
11

Saint George Basin & the Prince Regent River

Within the St George Basin are two flat topped hills, Mt Trafalgar and Mt Waterloo, which provide a spectacular backdrop as you cruise to the mouth of the Prince Regent River. This river is the remains of the longest single straight lineament in Australia, making it yet another geological wonder. Get your cameras ready as you experience some spectacular scenery, flora and fauna on our journey down this remote and pristine waterway, concluding at the majestic King Cascade Falls. This spectacular site is where American model, Ginger Meadows, was fatally attacked by a crocodile in 1987, a horror story which has been retold around the world! Keep an eye out for crocodiles as you view these magnificent falls which cascade over fern covered tiers in breathtaking splendour.

Arrival - Thursday June 20th, 2018: Derby & Broome

On our last morning we head back to Derby, through King Sound, where you will be transferred by bus back to Broome, taking with you memories to last a lifetime.


Please Note: The itinerary lists all the places you can reasonably expect to visit on your cruise between the Berkeley River & Derby. It is likely, however, that there will be additional places of interest visited on the actual cruise, time and tides allowing, which is why we prefer not to give you a day by day itinerary. Some of these places are well known, but others have been charted by our Captain during his 11 years of travelling the Kimberley Coast. It is his aim to maximise the cruising experience for all passengers, so he will decide when and where he will take you during your 14 days on the Kimberley coast. In this sense, every cruise is a little different and each passenger’s experience is unique.
