Eco Abrolhos announces 2024 Kimberley Cruises Schedule

Eco Abrolhos - The 'Active' Kimberley Cruise

If you enjoy more active holiday experiences, a Kimberley cruise aboard the classic 35-metre catamaran Eco Abrolhos might be exactly what you’re looking for. Now, don’t get us wrong, you don’t have to be young and super fit, or a marathon runner to enjoy this cruise, but the Eco Abrolhos will aim to provide ample time for swimming in secluded waterholes, exploring beach and bush trails, not to mention the opportunity for fishing. This is a 13-night expedition designed to maximise the adventure.

While it’s not too late to secure your 2023 Eco Abrolhos Kimberley cruise – call our team for available dates today – due to the ever-increasing popularity of Kimberley Cruises, the Eco Abrolhos 2024 schedules have been released early to allow early-planners the opportunity to secure their preferred cabins on the best cruise dates. You can see the 2024 schedules and prices at the bottom of this post.

The Eco Abrolhos - A Classic Catamaran

At just 35-metres in length, Eco Abrolhos (named after Western Australia’s spectacular Abrolhos Islands off Geraldton – the company’s home base and first cruising waters) accommodates just 32 travellers, what we like to call a true small-group experience. The atmosphere onboard is attentive, yet laidback and uniquely Australian, you’ll experience all that the Kimberley has to offer without having to worry about what you’re going to be dressing up in for dinner that night. There’s four grades of accommodation on offer aboard Eco Abrolhos, from the spacious, top-of-the-range King Bed Deluxe Staterooms through Double Staterooms and the Bunk-bedded King and Lower Deck cabins. All cabins feature a private en suite and air-conditioning, with all but a couple of cabins offering external views. While the accommodations may lack some of the comforts of the most modern larger ships plying the waters of the Kimberley, such as in-cabin TVs and marble bathrooms, they are comfortable, and after all, you’re here to experience the best of the Kimberley, not sit in your cabin all day!

Eco Abrolhos River Cruising Kimberley

The Eco Abrolhos Kimberley itinerary is 13-nights in duration, between Broome and Wyndham (Kununurra) and vice versa. You’ll experience all of the Kimberley’s iconic sights, such as Horizontal Falls, King Cascades, Montgomery Reef, King George Falls and many more, and will also have time to flick a lure in search of a barra and take a dip in a cooling billabong. Being 13-nights in duration, there’s plenty of time to linger if travellers are enjoying a particular location or there’s some wildlife viewing on offer, this itinerary never feels rushed.

When it’s time to explore, Eco Abrolhos’s four custom-built expedition tenders will really put you in the action. With 140Hp engines, forward facing central seating and high sides, these are the perfect viewing and photo platforms as the crew guide you up tidal rivers and amongst the mangroves. The folding front stairs makes boarding comfortable and easy and the full walk-around sides make fishing a breeze.
Having multiple tenders allows Eco Abrolhos to cater to the various desires of guests. Perhaps some expeditioners might wish to climb o the top of a waterfall while others would prefer to explore myriad creeks spotting wildlife. That’s no problem aboard the Eco Abrolhos.

Each day you will be able to participate in a range of activities and excursions. Hikes, treks, bushwalks; call them what you will but they are popular during these cruises and the rewards are well worth the effort. In addition to hikes to the Aboriginal rock art sites, there are multiple walks to freshwater swimming holes, hikes up side tributaries with small waterfalls and rock faces, walks into areas to see stunning birds and wildlife and even a walk over a salt flat to an intact DC-3 plane wreck in Vansittart Bay.
