The Kimberley Quest

Kimberley Quest

If you’ve missed out on enjoying a cruise in the last few years, did you know there is a very special cruise vessel in WA? The Kimberley Quest explores the stunning Kimberley region through a range of tours, adventures and activities – from 4 days to 3 weeks! It is based for much of the year in Western Australia’s far north. Recently, while it was berthed in Fremantle for maintenance, we took the opportunity to take a peek on board the beautiful vessel.

The Boat

The custom built for ship has been specifically designed for the ultimate relaxing holiday while exploring the Kimberley coastline in style. The fully air-conditioned cruise expedition vessel comes with added luxury of a helipad and spa to add to the luxe experience.

Accommodating a maximum of just 18 passengers and 6 crew, this adds to the intimate feel of the boutique cruise. And ensures you are treated like royalty by the staff. There are alfresco dining areas to enjoy the scenery and sunsets while drinking and enjoying a gourmet, chef-cooked meal. All meals, snacks and drinks are included. You can also help yourself to a coffee from the cappuccino machine. The large dining table in the outdoor entertaining area is a great place for enjoying the scenery with new friends over a coffee or wine.

The spa deck includes sun loungers and is a great spot to catch a sunset.

The indoor, air-conditioned saloon is an open dining/lounge area. There’s TVs, and you can even chat to the chefs in the galley here.

There’s plenty to do on board, find a book to get stuck into in the library, sit with the ship’s Captain in the wheelhouse and learn more about the Kimberley region – you may even spot a whale (in season!). You can even shop for local pearls!


There are three excursion tenders (small boats), which local guides take guests on daily adventures fishing (quality gear is provided), and exploring the Kimberley’s beautiful waterways and waterfalls, including Horizontal falls. Off the boat, there are hikes visiting places of historical, cultural and scenic interest, as well as beautiful remote beaches. There’s lots of swimming opportunities too, away from crocodile habitats. Scenic Heli Flights are an extra cost, well worth indulging in.

There are three room types on board the Kimberley Quest all have stunning artworks and ensuites.

Flybridge Cabin – the largest guest cabin on the top deck features a queen size bed, spacious ensuite, plenty of storage, individual air-conditioning, mini-fridge and large viewing window.

Superior Cabin – features a queen size bed, ensuite, individual air-conditioning, mini-fridge, large windows and a small wardrobe.

Double Cabin – located on the lower deck, these cosy cabins feature a double bed with an additional single bed above, ensuite, air-conditioning, mini-fridge and viewing window.

This bucket-list holiday on board the Kimberley Quest would be well worth treating yourself too. The boat is just stunning. What you do is up to you – you are encouraged by the friendly crew to do as much or as little as you like.
