About Great Escape

Live a Kimberley Cruise adventure unlike any other as you tour pristine waterfalls and towering gorges; enjoy beach picnics and sunset drinks; and unwind with bushwalks, fishing, mud crabbing and turtle spotting. 

With just seven Executive Staterooms, MV Great Escape accommodates only 14 expeditioners. Each stateroom is fully air-conditioned and features a queen-size bed, generous private en suite, flat screen television, DVD player and personal fridge.

Guests also have access to the onboard helicopter, which provides a thrilling aerial view of the Kimberley Coast’s enchanting wilderness on the way to the most remote Indigenous art-sites, fishing spots, waterfalls, and swimming-holes.

Or if simple relaxation is what you’re after, the saltwater spa on the foredeck provides a refreshing break during the warm Kimberley days and lets you lay back in style as you cruise through this wondrous landscape.

MV Great Escape comes with state-of-the-art satellite communications technology that includes phone, fax and email, as well as real-time television and an Apple iPad for guests’ convenience. This way you’ll never be out of touch with the outside world – unless you’d prefer it that way, of course!

The experienced and hospitable crew is waiting to welcome you aboard, so enquire today about when you can make your next Great Escape.
