Chartering a Kimberley Cruise with Friends

One of the best ways to discover the Kimberley coast is on an adventure cruise with a group of close friends. And it might surprise you that a private charter can be very cost effective.

Imagine the thrill of having a ship to yourselves, being able to tailor the itinerary to your own likes and even help devise the menu. Imagine sitting on deck with a glass of champagne with just a few of your closest friends for company as the sun sets over the Kimberley coast…

Cruising aboard the Kimberley Pearl

The team at Kimberley Cruise Specialists is on hand to help put together your ultimate private group getaway. Each of the ships we partner with in the Kimberley is available for private charter, although some of the larger vessels (like the 120 guest Coral Adventurer) might be a bit too big for a typical charterer.

There are some great choices from as few as six cabins; an ideal size for a few couples wanting to get away together. The 12 passenger Kimberley Pearl is one such option. Originally built as a pearling lugger for famed Broome Paspaley Pearls in 1979, this ship has recently undergone a thorough refurbishment and has six cabins accommodating up to 12 guests in style on Kimberley cruises.

What we love about our Kimberley Pearl is the feeling of travelling aboard a private yacht. Once you step aboard you will soon feel right at home. Like most homes, the kitchen is very much at the heart, and you can gather around as the ship’s professional chef prepares the day’s fresh catch of barramundi right in front of you. There’s also plenty of deck space, complete with a BBQ, along with an airy saloon area.

Kimberley Pearl on a Kimberley Cruise

The Kimberley Pearl also comes equipped with a fleet of three tenders, meaning that several different activities are possible at the same time depending on your mood. Perhaps you want to go out fishing whilst friends take a tender to look at Aboriginal art? When you cruise on the Kimberley Pearl you will enjoy complete flexibility.

You’ll also enjoy outstanding service from an expert crew of four during your charter. The Captain will be on hand to help plan your daily adventure programme, whilst the chef will be busy keeping you well fed. Two further crew operate as general hands, driving the tenders, explaining what you’re seeing and also keeping the ship in great shape!

Best of all, private charters aboard the Kimberley Pearl are incredibly cost effective as well. Up to 12 guests can share a charter of the ship from $61,600 for seven nights. That’s just $5,133 per person, exceptional value for such an intimate experience.

More Kimberley Cruise charter options

If you’ve got more than 12 people in your group then you will be looking at a slightly larger ship. We recommend the Great Escape (14 passengers) and Kimberley Quest II (18 passengers) as ideal for mid-size groups.

It’s not too late to start planning your 2021 Kimberley adventure cruise charter. The Kimberley Pearl still has a few charter spaces to fill between April and September, and charters aboard Diversity, Kimberley Quest II and the Great Escape are also still possible.

Keep in mind that it is always best to plan your charter as far in advance as possible to ensure the pick of the best cruise dates. Why not get your friends together and start planning a private adventure cruise in 2021?
