Take a journey through some of the wildest and most breathtaking scenery on the West Australian coast aboard Shore Thing, a luxury 51 foot catamaran specialising in unique cruising voyages.

Kimberley Catamaran Cruises operate Shore Thing, an air-conditioned vessel that has been designed specifically to explore the waterways of the Kimberley Coast. The eight berth catamaran offers quality transport and accommodation in the remote wilderness.

Shore Thing boasts all modern conveniences with accommodation for eight passengers in two staterooms with en suites and king sized beds, along with two deluxe double cabins with shared facilities. Two rooms can be converted to cater for twin share occupation. Shore Thing specialises in small group expeditions, or for individuals and couples looking for personalised cruises.

Kimberley Cruises operate between April and October and Shore Thing is also available for ‘Wet Season’ fishing charters from November to March.

Kimberley Catamaran Cruises offer itineraries ranging from six to ten days. All cruises incorporate scenic flights to/from, all meals and activities.

Ten day cruises will depart from either Buccaneer Archipelago or Naturalist Beach with a helicopter connection, which includes a scenic flight over Mitchell Falls. Each cruise is designed to offer the best scenery, adventure and enjoyment to be had on the coast and each day will offer a different experience.

The iconic areas that may be visited on a cruise include the Buccaneer Archipelago and its 1000 islands, the stunning Hunter River, the Prince Regent River and King’s Cascades, and many unknown bays and inlets where land excursions reveal some incredible discoveries.

With a catamaran our guests also get the unique experience of travelling through some of Western Australia’s most stunning scenery with the feeling of being totally at one with the surrounding nature.
