Every Unreel Adventure is unique
Your experienced Skipper and Crew will plan each day’s activities to suit the prevailing tides, weather and guests’ desires.
On Day 1
Chartered bus pick up from your Broome accommodation for your scenic overland drive to Derby or Cygnet Bay. Welcome aboard your new home King Tide, meet the crew & enjoy your favourite drink straight off the ice. Your safety and orientation briefing will be followed by a discussion of our plan for your unique adventure as we steam north into King Sound to our first anchorage.
Awaken to a spectacular sunrise, we are surrounded by beautiful Islands, with giant granite boulders resting above the pebbled beaches. At 1.8 billion years, these are some of the oldest rocks in Australia. Gather large Black Lipped Oysters at low tide, a delicious feast our cook will prepare just the way you like them. Follow the tide up a mangrove creek chasing Barramundi and Mudcrabs. Fish our secret lump for big Northern Mulloway as the tide slackens.
A great destination for a diverse range of fishing experiences. We’ll target Barramundi, Fingermark and Mangrove Jack in the creeks and try our luck for a Tuna in the bay. We’ll also drop the pots for a Mudcrab on the way to the spectacular Kyulgum Waterfall.
Cruise north to Hidden Island where, if tide permits, we will alight on the pure white sands of Silica Beach. Walk up the river bed to find the origin of this unusual creation. Enjoy a swim in the azure waters.
Fish the nearby reefs for big Fingermark and Saddletail Sea Perches. Our anchorage near the creek is a hot spot for close encounters with bigger marine animals after the sun sets.
Yampi Sound Fishing
Troll for Spanish Mackerel , Coral Trout and Trevally over the reefs. Drift over some deeper reefs for big Fingermark and Saddletail Sea perches on the turn of the tide.
At high tide visit Crocodile Creek for a lovely swim beneath the waterfall. The small fishes nibbling at your toes are juvenile Mangrove Jacks. Climb up to crystal waters of the spring fed pool above. Many of our adventurers will enjoy the aerial route back down.
Cruise through some of the most spectacular scenery on the coast and then be blown away by an exciting ride in a very fast boat through one of the natural wonders of the world, the Horizontal Waterfalls. The resident Tawny Nurse sharks will be slowly circling our duckboard, hoping for a feed.
Experienced by only a few, this bay is enclosed in steep quartzite cliffs. Waterfalls cascade from their heights. We will fish and explore creeks hidden in the mangroves. Here we find resident crocodiles and Barramundi chasing the bait up with the tide.
Catch the outgoing tide to the famous Montgomery Reef. Watch the water recede and the 400 square km of reef rise out of the water creating many bubbling cascades. See the myriad of reef life including Dugongs, Turtles, and schools of tropical fishes. Jump in for an exciting drift snorkel through coral canyons.
Hunt for delicious Mudcrabs on the rising tide in Red Cone Creek. Visit the beautiful Ruby Falls for a swim and climb up to explore the headwaters. Swim in Lilly lined pools draped by fragrant Weeping Paperbarks and Frangipani. Jump off the top into the plunge pool if you dare. (only for the hard core adventurers)
Ride the incoming tide into the steep sandstone gorges of the Sale River in the tenders. This is one of the most beautiful rivers in the Kimberley. Get above the highest rock bar on the top of the tide where the freshwater meets the salt, cast for a Barramundi. Explore a fantastic rainforest with spring fed creek. Swim in the cool fresh water with the local Cherubim.
Yampi Sound Exploring
After some more fishing around the Yampi reefs, we will cruise up Silvergull Creek to the Squatters Arms for a BBQ lunch. Explore a hidden oasis of tropical gardens replete with a warm spring fed pool. Float around in the healing waters and celebrate your adventures.
Today is the big fish day .We will be trolling the blue water offshore from Cafferelli Island for Spanish Mackerel, GTs, Queenfish, and Tuna. At high tide swim and stroll on a scenic double beach. Climb up to the top of the Island for a vista of the Archipelago.
Final Day 9 – Cygnet Bay or Derby
Watch a slideshow of your trip highlights as we steam through Escape Passage to Cygnet Bay at the NE of Cape Leveque. After an informative tour of the oldest family owned pearl farm in the Kimberley, it’s your choice for lunch and drinks at their cool new bistro. Purchase an Australian South Sea pearl from our pristine ocean. The original homestead has been transformed into a cafe’ and pearl gallery where you can view an array of Australian pearls harvested fresh from the waters of Cygnet Bay.

Ten friends from Sydney have just had THE MOST FANTASTIC WEEK onboard the Unreel Adventure boat King Tide.
We aren't fishermen /women at home and went for the scenery, waterfalls, adventure and a bit of fishing on the way.
We came away loving fishing with our great skipper and crew guiding the way,they convinced us and WE LOVE FISHING NOW!
We fished, crabbed, swam in the beautiful azure waters,climbed waterfalls, snorkeled along the amazing Montgomery reef, watched crocodiles stalk our boat, sharks cruising past ,turtles, sea snakes ,snub nosed dolphins and beautiful birds everyday, and managed to avoid the crowds from the big luxury cruises.
I'd recommend Bruce and his team for any great adventure planned. He was super helpful with planning and keen to know what wanted to do. He has a great knowledge of his backyard and worked around our ideas.
The food was excellent and plenty of it, we ate the crabs and fish we caught. Small but very comfortable sleeping area, and hot showers. We didn't get time to be in the cabin as there was so much to do. We fell asleep in blissful exhaustion every day ( our choice of how busy we wanted to be)
Thanks Bruce and team. We are already dreaming of another trip.
My family of 4 spent a week with Unreel Adventures in April, we had an unforgettable holiday.
The crew went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great time, I was a bit worried about my 82 year old Dad and how he would cope but there was no need to worry the crew were amazing. Bruce our skipper kept us busy sight seeing, catching fish, crabbing, exploring waterfalls and entertaining us with is stories.
Lyel was very knowledgable about fishing and we all learnt so much from him, he even made sure we had some great photos of the family to take home with us. It was a joy to be on the boat with him.
Its a adventure our family will not forget do yourself a favour and get up there and explore this beautiful country.
What an amazing trip.
The fishing was SENSATIONAL, the scenery was SENSATIONAL ,the people were SENSATIONAL.
My wife and I had the best time.
Bruce did his utmost to ensure all went well and we had a fulfilling adventure.
I still cant stop smiling.
Thanks to All
