Kimberley Explorer Cruises

Our excursion crafts and their shallow drafts are integral in negotiating the Kimberley’s challenging environment, changeable weather and immense tides.

Designed especially for cruising the Kimberley waters, our excursion vessel, The Explorer, seats all 44 passengers, and guides, and is easily accessed from deck level. We board her for each outing, whether that be to cruise the complex waterways and maze of islands that protect this seldom visited region, or to go ashore for a closer look, landing where few people have ever been.

At other times we may use smaller Zodiacs boats for thrilling adventure rides through the spectacular Horizontal Waterfalls or under King George Falls – Western Australia's highest twin waterfalls – or to venture down shallow river tributaries, places impossible to reach by larger vessels.

Get up close to lush flowing waterfalls, circumnavigate tiny off shore islands and cruise along rivers deep into the heart Kimberley heart; our cruise excursions offer the very best of Kimberley experiences.

The trip was outstanding and I would have happily turned around and done it all again.

This was the realisation of a long held dream of seeing the Kimberley Coastal/River regions. That the trip exceeded expectations is thanks entirely to Aurora's planning and personnel.

I could not speak more highly of Chris and Alasdair. Their knowledge and experience was wonderful and I don't think other tours could match them. A wonderful experience for us all.
