We liaise with the local bottle shop to make sure that your order is correct and arrives on time. If you would prefer to have your own selection of alcohol delivered to our office that is absolutely fine too. We can provide you with address details and the date your delivery is required.
If you are uncertain about how much to order we'd be happy to help. Don't forget that you're on holiday and there will probably be an opportunity to have a glass of wine or a beer at lunch. You might also enjoy a drink with your evening meal. We have a lot of experience and we're happy to talk your order through with you if you'll like some advice. We have a system on board to keep track of your supplies. Everybody's alcohol has a coloured dot on it which corresponds with their room.
You'll find it easy to know which drinks are yours. In our experience most people over pack for their cruise. You don't need to dress up for meals. It is a very relaxed dress code. You don't need to bring a lot with you. There is a laundry facility on board.
Clothes can be washed by your stewardess. We recommend people avoid bringing white clothes because the red dirt is hard to get out. Pack for comfort and pack for sun protection.
We recommend you bring your bathers, sarong, a caftan, some shorts and comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunglasses. Dress casually and perhaps have something that lets you can just feel a little bit more dressed up for dinner. The food is often a highlight for our guests. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality meals, featuring as much fresh, local produce as possible.
You will be served breakfast, morning tea, lunch and three courses for dinner every night. You'll wonder how on earth you will get through all of that food, but after a busy day out there exploring, you might surprise yourself. It doesn't matter which Kimberley cruise itinerary you choose, you are going to see wildlife. You will be travelling in crocodile-infested waters for a lot of the Kimberley Coast.
Seeing crocodiles in the wild is great fun. That said, we do have very healthy respect for the crocodiles. We sometimes see snub-nosed dolphins. There is also abundant birdlife wherever we go.

We always strongly recommend travel insurance. It's something that we talk about in almost every email that we send out to our guests. We emphasise how important it is to be insured. Cruising the Kimberley is not cheap. It's quite an investment. We want guests to protect their investment by taking out the appropriate insurance. Having to book so far in advance, there's a lot of things that can happen in that timeframe.
We are now agents for Cover-More Insurance. They offer an option where you can cancel for any reason and still be covered. That particular insurance needs to be taken out at the very beginning of your booking. The other sensible reason to take out good cover is that the Kimberley is very remote. In the unlikely event that you develop an illness or have an accident, you will need to be airlifted via helicopter to the nearest airstrip or township to seek medical attention.
Again, this insurance will offer you peace of mind. Every cruise will have at least one guest who has some form of diet restriction. We ask guests to fill out a detailed questionnaire about their dietary requirements so we can understand and plan your food accordingly. Due to the remoteness, there's no opportunity to just go to the shop and just get something that we've forgotten.

The more information that we can get the better. Our chef will work very closely with you to get this right. Some people have an intolerance to a great range of different foods. They feel anxious about letting us know. They don't want to make a nuisance of themselves, or they feel a bit embarrassed about it. We try and reassure people that we understand. We'll do our best to cater for your food preferences in any way possible.
Sometimes we ask for a list of a normal eating plan and the brands and different ingredients that you prefer.
We will do our best to cater to your needs. This is your holiday and we want you to feel comfortable and looked after. A lot of our guests actually don't enjoy fishing. They see fishing photos on our website, and they might ask the question, "Well, I'm not really that keen on fishing, so will I be sitting around on the boat doing nothing when everyone else is off fishing? The answer to that question is that with a small group, we try and cater to your likes and dislikes. If you are super keen to go fishing early morning, when the tide is right, you can get u early and go fishing. The rest of the group don't have to do that.
They can perhaps head off in the tender with the crew to go on a small bush walk, or a swim somewhere, or visit an art site. If you'd prefer a quiet time out on the boat, you are welcome to do that too. Great Escape is a small group experience. We've got that flexibility that we can offer different things. We pride ourselves on keeping part of our days unstructured so we can arrange things around you and the group you are travelling with.
Welcome to the Kimberley. About Great Escape Kimberley Cruises. Remote Kimberley Wilderness We spend a lot of our day talking about the pristine wilderness. Pristine Coastline Do you find the idea of an untouched wilderness really appealing? An Investment A trip like this is a significant investment for most people.
Why we are different. Helicopter Scenic Flights On our cruises, we use the helicopter in a variety of ways. Fishing Expeditions The helicopter might be used to transfer you to a little land-locked fishing spot deep in the Kimberley where you can fish for that elusive barramundi.
Transfers for Aboriginal Art Sites There are quite a few art sites that we like to walk to. An Extra Dimension The helicopter option adds another dimension to your cruise. Peace of Mind The helicopter flights allow us to land in on the tops of rocky ridges or right alongside remote waterholes.
What Convinces People In our experience, once you are onboard and you see it, you won't want to miss out.
Special Occasions We recently had a couple onboard who were celebrating a special wedding anniversary. Easy Does It Cruisers Maybe fitness is not your thing. Graded Walks All of our walks are carefully graded. Individual Support We travel with just fourteen guests and six crew. Cruise Itineraries. Waterfall Safari Cruise 8 Nights The waterfall safari is a one-off cruise on our calendar each year. Overnight Travel We take in those big waterfall areas at the very start of the season. Best Waterfall Flow for Photography It is also early season, so there are a few advantages to that.
Aboriginal Rock Art For people that are really interested in the Aboriginal rock art, the Bradshaw Gwion Gwion art is more prevalent in the top end of the coast. See The Whole Kimberley Coast Often, if a guest has travelled with us on a shorter cruise, they want to return to complete the other part of the coast.
No Luggage Restrictions and No Flying On this cruise, we travel from port to port, which means that there are no luggage restrictions, and there are no fixed wing or helicopter transfers involved in the itinerary. Itinerary - Seasons and Weather We plan our cruises carefully depending on the time of year that we are visiting that region of the Kimberley Coast. The Crew The one thing that comes up time and time again in feedback is how much guests enjoy spending time with the crew.
Start and Finish in Broome The itinerary starts and finishes in Broome, we feel as though that's probably a big drawcard that people love the idea of visiting Broome in addition to coming onboard. Kimberley Fishing Extravaganza Cruise 4 Nights This cruise is a short fascinating little itinerary where there is a flight component at both ends. Booking Your Kimberley Cruise We advise you to plan ahead.
The Finer Points. Suppliers We provide you with a list of our preferred suppliers, and we work closely with them. Quantity If you are uncertain about how much to order we'd be happy to help. What To Pack In our experience most people over pack for their cruise. Great Food The food is often a highlight for our guests. Wildlife It doesn't matter which Kimberley cruise itinerary you choose, you are going to see wildlife. Travel Insurance Travel insurance gives you peace of mind. Dietary Requirements Every cruise will have at least one guest who has some form of diet restriction.
