Step on board and become immersed in the Kimberley Coast’s rugged beauty, the power of its waters, and the potency of its landscape. Visit Aboriginal rock art galleries, sit quietly alongside lush mangrove forests listening to a morning birdsong chorus, and Zodiac-cruise mighty rivers and meandering creeks while you search the banks for the mighty saltwater crocodile. Birdlife abounds, so scan the skies and shorelines for Brahminy kites, white-bellied sea eagles, frigatebirds, terns, oystercatchers, herons and egrets. At sea, keep an eye out for breaching humpback whales, bobbing heads of curious green sea turtles, sleek manta rays, shy dugongs and the endemic snubfin dolphin. At the end of each day, drink in the spectacular Kimberley sunset and reflect on your new adventures.
