KIMBERLEY EXPEDITION CRUISES

Welcome to the otherworldly Kimberley. Tucked along the northwestern corner of Australia, the Kimberley is one of the world’s last wild frontiers, from rugged sandstone peaks and gushing waterfalls, to desert expanses, sunken mangrove forests, and everything in between. Cruise through Montgomery Reef as the tides rush out, leaving sea turtles dotting their heads in its midst. Search for a lustrous, masterfully cultivated pearl on a local pearl farm. Splash through the spray of King George Falls, or take to the skies in an amphibious Mallard aircraft to watch tawny sharks swim below. Better yet, engage with the original land-owning communities and their cultural rites, including guided showings of the unique Gwion Gwion artwork they have curated for centuries.

Crystal-clear waters and gleaming pearls aside, our Kimberely expeditions stand out to guests who want to travel Australia, but also desire to expedition off the beaten path. Whether you are a well-seasoned traveler, wildlife enthusiast, natural history buff, or are simply seeking a new adventure in one of the most pristine places on Earth, experience this unique corner of the world with Seabourn.

The Kimberley Expedition Port Highlights

Featured Included Shore Excursions

Kuri Bay Pearl Farm

Offering an intriguing and unique glimpse into the South Sea Pearl industry, guests will hear directly from the farmers themselves about the entire process. You’ll travel to and from the ship by Zodiac, where your expedition team will point out tawny nurse sharks in the crystal-clear waters below you. 

Traditional Face Painting Ceremony

Envelop yourself in the warm welcome of the local Wunambal Gaambera people as they share their traditional face-painting ceremony with you. The traditional landowners will guide you to a rock overhang that’s both home to a Wandjina dreamtime art gallery, and historical shelter to their families. Walk in the footsteps of your guide’s ancestors as they share stories and traditions with you that have been passed down through generations. The day comes to a close with a traditional smoke ceremony to send you off with well wishes and a safe journey.
