Operated by: Eco Abrolhos Cruises
At 35 metres in length, the Eco Abrolhos can accommodate just 32 passengers in twin share cabins on Western Australia's Kimberley Coast. She is a multi-hull vessel supporting four levels of operating decks. This expedition ship is an ideal size with her 17 en suited cabins, all of which are air-conditioned.
Eco Abrolhos offer comprehensive 13 night expedition cruises through the Kimberley, of which there are just eight for the season – four from Broome to Darwin and four from Darwin to Broome. The experienced Australian crew pride themselves on showing each and every guest a complete cross-section of all that the magnificent Kimberley has to offer. The cruises start and finish on the spring tide (new and full moon) to provide guests the maximum “WOW” factor at critical tidal areas like Montgomery Reef, The Horizontal Falls and the King George and Berkeley rivers – all of which are at the start or end of the expedition. The neap tides in the centre of the trip allow for better fishing and longer stops at the tide-dependent swimming holes and shore-based hikes. The Kimberley's 11-metre tides mean that this forward planning is a very important aspect of the Eco Abrolhos itinerary.
Eco Abrolhos cruises with four custom-built, high-powered tenders, each seating eight guests in comfort. The folding front stairs make boarding easy for any age.
Fishing is also available throughout the expedition and there are options for both trolling and bottom fishing for quality table fish, which will be expertly prepared by the ship's professional chef. With guided Indigenous rock art tours, scenic gorge and waterfall experiences, bird watching, treks, freshwater swimming holes, incredible sunrises and sunsets, two optional helicopter flights and a complimentary fast boat ride through The Horizontal Falls, The Eco Abrolhos’s 13 night cruise certainly covers the very best that the Kimberley has to offer.
