After enjoying a sumptuous evening meal enjoy a restful night under the Kimberley night sky.
Day Three – Doubtful Bay
Awaken to the aroma of fresh coffee and breakfast being prepared. Once you are energized, sit back and enjoy the beautiful steam through Raft point into Doubtful bay. Doubtful bay is the gateway to many waterways each with their own unique landscape and swimming holes. Spend the day pursuing your choice of activities fishing, mud crabbing or exploring the many fresh water swimming holes the Kimberley keeps secret.
Day Four – Montgomery Reef
Depart Red Cone Creek early in the day and enjoy a short steam to nearby Montgomery Reef. Once anchored, guests will enjoy a scenic tour as the reef rises out of the ocean and water cascades into the channel. Guests will then have the choice to fish the run-offs or just take the opportunity to photograph a special part of the Kimberley.
Day Five – Deception Bay
Wake up to Deception bay on the low tide where guests will have the opportunity to fish and gather some Black Tip Kimberley Oysters. Once the tide has risen, the crew will escort guests for a refreshing swim at one of the many fresh water swimming holes. MV Diversity then departs Deception bay steaming north to the mighty Prince Regent River.
Day Six – Cascade Waterfalls
Wake up in the St George Basin and take the tenders up Spit Fire Creek for the opportunity to catch the prized Barramundi. Once the tide has risen the skipper maneuvers the boat under the powerful Kings Cascade waterfall. Guests will have the opportunity to swim and hike the surrounding areas before we steam to Camp Creek for the night.
Day Seven – Camp Creek
Once guests have enjoyed breakfast, they will have the opportunity to fish the river for Fingermark Broome and Mangrove Jack. Guests can leisurely explore the Aboriginal Artwork of the area. On the high tide the crew takes the tenders up to Camp Creek to enjoy a freshwater swim and the waterfall. MV Diversity will catch the outgoing tide and anchor at Careening Bay
Day Eight – Mermaid Tree
Guests will go to shore to view the Mermaid Tree and learn about the rich history of the area.

Day Twelve – King George River
Wake up and enjoy breakfast as we travel up the King George river. Truly the diamond in the crown of the Kimberley. Feel the true power of the falls As we place the bow of diversity under the 84m high waterfalls. Enjoy a walk up to the top of the falls followed by a light dip. After lunch have a swim in the beautiful King George Crack and head out the front for some awesome Bluewater fishing.
Day Thirteen – Berkeley River
Enjoy breakfast on the way up the Berkeley River as the landscape changes before you. Grab your rod and steam to the head of the river where the fresh water pours over the rock bars, a prime spot for Barramundi.

The afternoon will be lazy, enjoying a glass of bubbles in a freshwater swimming hole, before returning to the boat for dinner. Final dinner on the anchor before Diversity heads to Wyndham.
