8 or 10 Days Berkeley River and King George River Combination Kimberley Cruise

Join Opal Shell  to explore two magnificent river gorge systems and the beautiful coast, islands and pristine beaches in between. This is the ultimate Kimberley cruise for calm water, peaceful scenic anchorages, our own rock art discoveries and great fishing for Barraundi and Mangrove Jack in stunning surroundings. With our local knowledge of the tides, Opal Shell anchors deep within the rivers so that you will become a part of this majestic environment with new discoveries every day. With little time spent travelling, your days are free to relax, explore and so as much or as little as you please. Ron and Barbara will plan the days to suit your needs.

The Berkeley River has been our favourite river, and best kept secret, for many years with 11 miles of a navigable and beautiful river gorge, great bush walks, swimming holes and waterfalls. The miles of white sandy beaches at the mouth are a shell collectors fantasy and the bounty of fish and mud crab from the river will delight .

Rest at anchor six miles inside the King George River at the base of the sheer 80 metre twin waterfalls. Walk to the top for the fantastic views, a picnic lunch and enjoy the fresh water swimming or shower beneath the falls in comfort and safety aboard our sturdy runabouts.  Imagine relaxing at night after a sumptuous dinner watching  millions of stars reflected in the calm waters or the cliffs reflected in the river with a full moon.

This exciting Kimberley cruise begins and finishes with scenic flight transfers between Lake Kununurra and Opal Shell, at anchor deep in the heart of the rugged Kimberley wilderness, giving a fantastic overview of the East Kimberley Coast.
