10 Day Coastal Photography Wilderness Adventure

27 April 2022

Get ready for an adventure at the end of the Kimberley wet season, when the waterfalls are still flowing and the wildlife is active.  Maximum of 8 excited photographers plus me!

The trip starts in Broome.  We are transfered by bus to Derby where we meet our vessel King tide.  We will ride the gentle ebb tide out of the King Sound and thread through the Inland Sea, Hell’s Gate and into the Buccaneer Archipelago.  In the late afternoon we may go swimming and photograph sunset on the beach with ghostly stone sculptures.  

The next 9 days are a carefully curated photographic adventure. Each day will include a short steam with the tidal stream through an amazing Archipelago in which every turn reveals a unique vision. The voyage will be planned to arrive at each anchorage at the best possible time to enjoy the photography, swimming, bush walking, waterfall immersion, wildlife interaction, fishing or just the peace and quiet.

As we get a feel for what is possible, we can vary the trip to suit our photographic desires and the prevailing weather.

The wind, sea and temperature should all be warm and balmy and not too hot at this time. If we have the big wet season that is forecast, the waterfalls should be spectacular and the Barramundi still active.

Friday 6th May we steam with the incoming tide across to Cygnet Bay, and we may see some massive whirlpools as we traverse Mermaid Pass. Upon anchoring inside the bay, we will depart King tide and transfer ashore. A short and informative tour of the Pearl Farm and Gallery is available. A transfer to the airstrip to board your scenic flight over the Dampier Peninsula will complete your Unreel Photography Adventure.

 2023 Itinerary - 13 Days

If your after a larger vessel with a few more creature comforts, try my 2023 Kimberley Coast photography cruise.

An example of places you may visit in 2023 are:

York Sound & the Hunter River:

Prince Frederick Harbour lies within York Sound and it is here that we find the Hunter River. This area boasts sensational scenery, with cathedral-like gorges and eroded sandstone features such as Indian Head at the entrance to the Hunter River. Not only is this area awesome for landscape photography, it is sensational for bird photography as we cruise through some of the most pristine mangrove forests in the world, supporting a rich and diverse fauna including the beautiful Brahminy Kite.  In Porosus Creek we have our best opportunity to photograph the world’s largest living reptile species, the Estuarine Crocodile (also known as the saltwater crocodile).  This magnificent creature is a vital part of the northern eco-system.

Saint George Basin & the Prince Regent River:

Within the St George Basin are two flat topped hills, Mt Trafalgar and Mt Waterloo, which provide a spectacular backdrop as you cruise to the mouth of the Prince Regent River.  Once in the river we journey up this remote and pristine waterway enjoying the fabulous scenery and keeping a look out for the playful Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin and shy Australian Snubfin Dolphin, Australia's only endemic dolphin. Our journey upriver concludes at the majestic King Cascade Falls where water cascades over fern covered tiers.

Hanover Bay & Camden Sound:

Within Hanover Bay are the pristine sands of Hanover Beach. This is a great spot for beach-combing or sunset shots over the bay.  We may make our way to a lookout or rock platform or shoot from the beach to capture another sunset shot over the Indian Ocean. The area is rich in both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous history.  Camden Sound is recognised as the northern most breeding and calving area for Humpback Whales on the Kimberley Coast.  Found in the Kimberley from June to September, the whales nurse their young in the protected waters of Camden Sound.  As we cruise southwards they can often be found playing together, so keep your eye out for whale action.

Montgomery Reef:

One of the true highlights of any Kimberley Cruise is the magnificent Montgomery Reef.  This 400 sq km reef appears to emerge from the ocean at low tide, creating a visual spectacle of waterfalls and marine life.  We cruise along the channel that takes us deep into the reef system. With the help of the tenders we can get in close for some amazing shots of the water running off the reef and view turtles coming to the surface right next to the tender.  

Talbot Bay & the Horizontal Falls:

Talbot Bay is home to the famous Horizontal Falls. The region's massive tides create a spectacular scene, sending huge volumes of water pouring through two narrow chasms in the land formation when the tides reach peak flow creating a mass of whirlpools and raging currents.  In nearby Cyclone Creek, again in the tenders,  we cruise past the high cliffs lining the saltwater creek looking  for Rock Wallabies, Striated Herons, Ospreys and crocodiles. We may also see the harmless, but impressive, Tawny Nurse Sharks which often come to greet our vessel.
