Pristine wilderness

The Kimberley in Western Australia is often referred to as one of the last wilderness frontiers in the world. The landscape is truly unique: It’s remote: It’s ancient: It’s pristine.

Cruise the Kimberley with Discovery One and you’ll marvel at ancient Aboriginal rock art, you’ll dip in picturesque water holes, walk on beaches without footprints, gaze in awe at horizontal waterfalls, and enjoy short hikes to significant landmarks. You’ll be in awe of natural wonders such as Montgomery Reef in the Buccaneer Archipelago and King Cascades in the Prince Regent River. Magnificent, thundering waterfalls will take your breath away – like King George Falls – and eroded gorges and sandstone cliffs will amaze. And be sure to look out for the friendly locals – humpback whales, turtles, dolphins, and more. You can witness diverse marine life in the region’s marine parks, including Montgomery Reef. A voyage through the Kimberley is truly a special experience.

…without a doubt the most wonderful holiday I have ever experienced; wonderful staff, incredible destinations, amazing food and a most exciting adventure. I would not change a thing.


Discovery One will take you on an unforgettable adventure. Smaller than other cruise ships, the 25-metre catamaran has a shallow draft which allows us to travel close to shore, up rivers and between the many islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago. There is actually over 1000 islands!

We aim to immerse you in the Kimberley - igniting all of your senses - sights, sounds, touch, aromas and tastebuds...

We tow 2 tenders and take you on excursions in the adventure boats 2 to 3 times a day - depending on the cruise package (weather and tides permitting).

In 2024, we celebrate 22 years of cruising the Kimberley region. As Kimberley specialists - this is the only region that we explore - we are delighted to share the gems of this spectacular and remote region with new guests and returning passengers.
