12 Days Mitchell Plateau to Buccaneeer Archipelago Kimberley Cruise

Enjoy a fascinating scenic flight from Kununurra to the Mitchell Plateau airstrip to board your helicopter for an exhilerating flight over the Mitchell Falls before rendezvousing with Opal Shell, at anchor in a remote calm water bay. Your cruise will be enchanced by leisurely sailing through beautiful serene bays and exciting whirlpool passages, exploring the coastline for ancient rock art, walking, beach combing fishing and swimming in secluded pools. We will be watching for Humpback Whales, which often interact with Opal Shell like a new found play mate, during our journey to the Buccaneer Archipelago.
