12 nights and 13 days: Wyndham – Broome
March to May
This is the ultimate cruise incorporating all of the Kimberley Coast between Broome and Wyndham known as the Buccaneer, Bonaparte Archipelagos and Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. This is a one way cruise. In between Broome and Wyndham there are approximately 2000 islands. We explore all three Archipelagos during the late wet season where the Kimberley is renowned for summer storms, spectacular light shows, thundering waterfalls and swollen billabongs. Fishing, swimming in fresh waterholes, beach combing, exploring aboriginal art and walks are all on the menu in some of the remotest parts of the Kimberleys. Places we visit will include the Horizontal Falls a must do, other places on the proposed itinerary may include but not limited to Montgomery Reef, Silica Beach, Crocodile Creek, Silvergull, Ruby Falls, Hiro Bay, Camden Sound, Kings Cascades, Cathedral Falls, Bigge Island, Hunter River, Vansittart Bay, King George Falls, Berkley River Falls and the Helby and Lynne River along with the fascinating history and remains of the Truscott Airbase. Each adventure will be different according to tides and weather.
The Bonaparte Archipelago in WA’s remote Kimberley region, is a maze of islands, inlets, peninsulas and rivers. In the wet season the land is awash and teeming with life, it’s colour and scale conspire to take ones breath away. Its diverse coastline is timeless but far from static with 11 metre tides (the second largest in the world). Staggering quantities of water flood it, and empty from it, twice daily with the tides. Its distant location has meant it has remained an unspoilt and remarkably pristine location to explore and experience. These islands are located roughly offshore from Hall Point to Montague Sound, an area that is largely uninhabited except for a few tourist camps.
The Archipelago is an awesome wilderness and no description can do it justice. Distance and size are hard to judge here, as are the colours to comprehend. Whereas Buccaneer Archipelago was named in commemoration of the British adventurer William Dampier, who visited the coast in 1688, Bonaparte Archipelago honours French First Consul, Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821). Its name was bestowed by French explorer Nicolas Baudin, who charted the coast and explored the islands in August 1801 as part of a major French expedition of scientific discovery around the shores of Australia. Joseph Bonaparte Gulf was named after Joseph Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon and King of Napes (1806) and also by Nicholas Baudin in 1803.
