Opal Shell Kimberley Cruises are designed for you to have a relaxing and unwinding holiday where you can become a part of this ancient land and absorb all its beauty. Activities are tailored for all ages and levels of fitness (general good health is desirable) and guests are encouraged to participate in dinghy excursions and bush walks. All Kimberley cruises are professionally crewed so you do not need any sailing or boating experience but are always welcome to join in or learn.

Scenic flight float plane and helicopter connections from Broome/Derby and Kununurra eliminate the less interesting (and sometimes rough) sea passages and give you maximum value and time in the heart of the best Kimberley Coast Cruising grounds. For comfort and safety, and so you will not miss any of this great scenery, Opal Shell Kimberley Cruises do not travel overnight.

To provide an excellent level of service, the owners Ron and Barbara Chester limit the number of guests to only 8  or less on Kimberleyscheduled cruises. Guests have their own private twin or double cabin and enjoy plenty of space both above and below deck. Full bathroom facilities with hot fresh water are shared.
Smoking is not permitted below deck.

Low guest numbers on Opal Shell Kimberley Coast Cruises ensure very personalised service and attention and a very exclusive experience in this magnificent wilderness - only 8 people or less to share the natural swimming pools, rock art sites, beaches and our own special places. You will usually have a whole bay, beach, island or river system to yourself.

Ron Chester has gained incredible knowledge of the tides and the Kimberley Coast which enables him to anchor Opal Shell in rivers, creeks and other places which are inaccessible to many others. On an Opal Shell Kimberley Cruise you will spend quality time exploring deep into the wilderness (not just a quick dinghy ride) and discover the heart of the Kimberley that has kept us returning for nearly 30 years. Ron and Barbara are original pioneers of cruising the Kimberley Coast.
