Mid-season Kimberley cruising

The Kimberley

Being peak season it’s a busy time for The Great Escape Charter Company; we’ve seen our first round of 13 night Kimberley Classic Adventures come and go and made some wonderful new friends along the way. Two groups booked the whole boat and each had a festive 2 weeks from Wyndham to Broome; what a way to reunite with friends!

Our first round of 7 night Southern Kimberley Experiences have passed and Skipper Scotty, a favourite with guests, returned to join the crew, and guide guests through the land he is so passionate and knowledgeable about.

Now we return to the full 13 night cruises and while conditions are perfect, the waterfalls are still flowing along the entire coastline, thanks to the amazing Wet Season we had at the start of the year. The whales are also appearing as they move up the West Coast of Oz heading for Camden Harbour, a prime area for whale mating and breeding.

Just around the corner too are our 4 night Barra Bonanza fishing adventures, where the dream to catch the elusive Barramundi become a daily reality. Fishing the Kimberley Coast is the ultimate sport fishing adventure. Following the Barramundi hunting, comes our 5 and 7 night Rowley Shoals diving and snorkelling adventures, the short season exploring this spectacular collection of coral atolls off the west coast of Broome.

Meanwhile in Broome itself, the streets are busy and bustling with tourists escaping cold southern winters in exchange for our balmy 28-30 degree days and clear blue skies where the sun always shines. A few of the big cruise liners have been through and brought with them countless tourists exploring this old pearling town and it’s history.

The Broome horse races have also attracted punters from all over the region and interstate to the stunning beach-side racecourse for the weekly race-meets, culminating in the famous Ladies Day this Tuesday, and ending on Saturday with the annual Broome Cup.
