Kimberley Coastal Cruises
Embark on a cruise along the Kimberley coast where untouched wilderness and natural wonders await. Pindan cliffs frame turquoise water that teems with marine life and towering sandstone facades are a canvas for picture perfect cascading waterfalls. Take it in from the water on a cruise of the Kimberley, or choose a tour and cruise combo to explore Australia’s north west by land and sea.

Must do experiences and highlights on a cruise of the Kimberley
King George Falls
Wind between the red cliffs that frame King George River to King George Falls, where an 80m (262ft) wall of water cascades over towering sandstone facades.
An underwater world is exposed by the tides as the sea drains off the reef, giving you a rare insight into the coral systems and the marine life that flits around them.
Sundowners on the Deck
Enjoy the spectacular west coast sunsets on the deck as the sky throws colourful hues across the water. The perfect end to a day of exploring in the Kimberley.
Indigenous Rock Art
Wandjina rock art is characteristic of the Kimberley where these illustrations adorn rock faces and caves across the region. Traditionally repainted, you’ll find well preserved representations of artwork dating back some 5,000 years.
Cruise Horizontal Falls
Surging tides bring about this impressive natural phenomenon as a barrage of water forces its way between two narrow gorges. Take to the swirling water and get up close to this extraordinary display by fast boat.

What our clients are saying about their tours and cruises of the Kimberley
“Amazing wilderness cruise in the Kimberley”
The Kimberley is a once in a lifetime experience and one that all Australians should undertake. The landscape, coast, wildlife, Aboriginal art and culture are unique. The APT vessel, crew, expedition team and service were faultless. We have been on many trips, cruises and independent travel - this experience was the best we have ever experienced. We can recommend it without reservation.
“Great land tour, amazing cruise.”
We enjoyed the land tour very much, but would make some suggestions for improvement. The driver/guide did an excellent job, but there should have been a separate tour director/ back up driver. Guiding 20 people (many over 70 and not tremendously fit) on several challenging walks was in our opinion too much responsibility for 1 person. The drive on the last day from Halls Creek back to Broome was unreasonably long ( over 12 hours including a 1 hour cruise stop & a few toilet stops) for 1 driver. It ...read more would have been better to drive to Fitzroy Crossing the day before, resulting in a shorter drive on the last day. One further suggestion would be to give passengers more detailed information in the itinerary regarding the early starts and fitness levels required before booking. The cruise was fantastic in every aspect. We enjoyed our porthole cabin very much finding it very spacious and comfortable. The service was outstanding & very friendly. Every member of the crew that you encountered from whatever department always acknowledged you and appeared happy in their work, a great testament to Captain Jose, who could surely get a job in stand up comedy if he tires of life on the high seas. The quality and variety of the food was excellent, as was the quality of the included drinks. The expedition team were ably lead by Phil and were informative and clear in their directions. Excursions were enhanced by input from local Aboriginal people. We would recommend doing the land tour before the cruise and also cruising from Broome to Darwin. Global journeys were excellent and meeting Yvonne our consultant on board was an added bonus.
“Cruising the Kimberley”
This was an amazing trip! Always been top of the bucket list and it did not disappoint. Our first time travelling with APT - really impressed with the attention to detail. Highly recommended!
“Magnificent Kimberley Coast”
The Kimberley coast cruise with APT has long been on our bucket list. We had read many positive reviews and they were all true. The ship, the crew, the organisation, the food, the excursions were all exceptional. The expedition staff, led by Jane, went out of their way to ensure we maximised our experience. Well done APT. Closer to home Yvonne and Global Journeys ensured all pre-cruise organisation went smoothly.
