About Eco Abrolhos
The classic catamaran Eco Abrolhos accommodates just 32 expeditioners on exploratory journeys along Western Australia’s Kimberley Coast. She is a 35-metre multi-hull small ship with four decks.
Her comprehensive 13-night expedition cruises through the Kimberley are designed for the more active traveller, with ample time for walks and exploration ashore. There are just eight cruises for the season between Darwin and Broome and vice versa and the knowledgeable Australian crew pride themselves on showcasing the very best of the Kimberley. The cruises start and finish on the spring tide (new and full moon) to guarantee guests the maximum “WOW” factor at critical tidal attractions such as Montgomery Reef, the Horizontal Falls and the King George and Berkeley rivers – all of which are at the start or end of the expedition. In the middle of the trip, neap tides allow for better fishing and longer stops at the tide-dependent swimming holes and shore-based hikes.
Eco Abrolhos travels with four high-powered tenders, each seating eight guests in comfort. The folding front stairs make beach landings easy for any age.
Eco Abrolhos Kimberley Cruises
Eco Abrolhos operates 13-night expeditions between Darwin and Broome, a route most other expedition ships complete in 10-nights. This extra time allows for an in-depth, unhurried exploration, and is ideal for travellers seeking a more active experience in terms of walks ashore. All cruises feature the major highlights of the Kimberley, from King George Falls to Horizontal Falls, Montgomery Reef, Aboriginal art, King Cascades, fishing and so much more. Eco Abrolhos Kimberley cruises depart May to September annually.
