Cruise Description 6 Night Cruise sailing from Cygnet Bay to Prince Frederick Harbour aboard Phoenix One.

Day 1 Buccaneer Archipelago – Talbot Bay
Cruising above the stunning coastline start your adventure touching down in Cape Leveque via a light plane from Broome where you will head to the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm for a private tour of the oldest operating Pearl farm, offering insight into some of the world’s most sought-after pearls. Mid-morning the crew will welcome you aboard Phoenix One where you can settle in and enjoy the changing landscape as we cruise past the Iron Islands towards Talbot Bay. Explore Crock Creek by tender for a refreshing swim and opportunity to fish.

Day 2 Horizontal Falls – Doubtful Bay
Wake to the phenomenon of Horizontal Falls, described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest wonders of the natural world”. Experience incredible tidal movements up to 10m creating a ‘horizontal’ waterfall between the cliffs as water surges through the narrow gap creating vast tidal whirlpools.

After the thrill of the falls, we cruise to Doubtful Bay. Exploring Red Cone Creek by tender, we will adventure to either Ruby or Sapphire Falls; hidden gems nestled between the mangroves to enjoy a dip, with the opportunity to drop in a crab pot to catch our dinner.

Day 3 Montgomery Reef – Deception Bay
The largest inland reef formation in Australia, Montgomery Reef is a must-see feature of the Kimberley. This amazing living reef system spanning 80km was once home to the local Yawijibaya Tribe. Each day multitudes of turtles, dugongs and rays can be spotted feeding alongside the reef as it peeks up some 5 meters allowing water to cascade down its channels back into the ocean. After a trip up Trevally Alley in the tenders to explore we have the chance for a swim at Deception Bay.

Day 4 Camden Harbour
Historic Camden Harbour settlement was once promised as the next Sydney Harbour to the first European settlers in the Kimberley; documented in “The Three Ships” available in the onboard library. We will enjoy a scenic cruise through to Port George and Treachery Passage to Saint George’s Basin. We pass Mount Trafalgar and Waterloo Basin, home of Sir Joseph Bradshaw’s pastural lease; the first European to document the Gwion Gwion rock drawings in 1891. In the afternoon we cruise to Prince Regent Harbour where we will explore by tender and drop in a line to fish for Barramundi and Mangrove Jack.

Day 5 Prince Regent – King Cascade
Named after Philip Parker King, King Cascade waterfalls are a spectacular sight in full flow with cascading water surrounded by lush ferns. After a climb to the top of the falls to soak in the beautiful freshwater pools we can explore the river finding more famous Gwion Gwion rock art on the Northern banks before catching the tide to Careening Bay.

Day 6 Careening Bay – Hunter River
Waking up in the beautiful Careening Bay landscape to explore onshore, we visit the heritage-listed boab tree, originally blazed in 1820 which still grows today. This was once the site of beach explorer vessel HMS Mermaid, captained by Phillip Parker King. During the ten days at Careening Bay before the crew managed to refloat the vessel, a crew member found the boab tree where he carved the famous graffiti “HMC Mermaid 1820” into the corky bark. Roe and Hunter Rivers both discharge into Prince Frederick Harbour offering stunning scenery with vibrant sandstone cliffs, ancient rock art and impressive crocodiles.

Day 7 Prince Frederick Harbour
Enjoy a last breakfast on board Phoenix One with Prince Frederick Harbour offering a stunning final backdrop to your Kimberley adventure. Watch as your Mallard float plane lands on the water before crew assist to transfer your luggage to your flight and after a fond farewell your next adventure begins over the rugged terrain of the Kimberley through to Darwin.
