Pearl Sea Coastal Cruises

With Lynne and Jeff Ralston at the helm, Pearl Sea Coastal Cruises is a family run luxury cruise company dedicated to delivering first class personalised service from the guest’s initial inquiry through to the conclusion of the expedition. This award winning company operates between the months of February through to November, and covers the northwest coast of Western Australia from Broome to Wyndham, catering for individuals and small groups offering “The Ultimate Kimberley Experience”.

Pearl Sea Coastal Cruises offers extended live aboard expeditions to spectacular wilderness areas of the Kimberley. The itineraries vary and include scenic cruises, fishing safaris and dive adventures (to the Rowley Shoals), as well as nature based eco experiences on board its luxury vessel Kimberley Quest II.

The Kimberley Quest II is a purpose built 85 foot (25 metre), fully air conditioned, live on board vessel with modern conveniences to maximise passenger comfort whilst cruising and exploring the Kimberley coastline. Cruises range from a seven day Mitchell Plateau to a fourteen day Broome to Wyndham or the reverse. Dive expeditions to the Rowley Shoals from November each season. The vessel is equipped with a helipad, and additional helicopter flights to art sites and remote fishing grounds are available on request.

A maximum of 18 passengers can be carried on the Kimberley Quest II in a full range of cabins, all with their own private en-suite, separate air-conditioning and bar fridge. For exclusive private charters there is a maximum of 16 passengers.

The vessel is equipped with a large galley, dining room and several deck areas for relaxation, sightseeing and alfresco dining. The talented chef offers a diverse range of cuisine, incorporating the best local produce and of course Kimberley tastes such as barramundi, mud crabs and oysters.

Today the Kimberley remains one of the world’s last unique wilderness areas, featuring rugged escarpments, dramatic ranges, spectacular gorges and majestic waterfalls. Pearl Sea Coastal Cruises visit icons such as the Horizontal Waterfalls, the islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago, Montgomery Reef, King Cascade and the awesome King George Falls. There is always something rare and wonderful to see as you cruise the estuaries and inlets aboard our excursion tenders. The knowledgeable crew will share their secrets, guiding guests to rare Aboriginal galleries, pointing out the flora and fauna and explaining the history of early settlement of this remote area.
