When it comes to beautiful parts of the world that are worth visiting, the Kimberley has got to be at the top of the list with its rugged landscape, rich history and abundant wildlife. Due to the remote location of many of the Kimberley’s most incredible sights, a cruise is the best way to explore the area and experience everything it has to offer.
If you’ve been keeping your eyes out on Kimberley cruise specials and have found a package that’s just tempting enough for you to consider heading off to explore, we’re here to share some of our tips for the perfect cruise.
Catch up on doing nothing
There’ll be no shortage of areas to explore and activities to try while you’re on your Kimberley cruise but remember to also take the time to just relax. The beauty of a cruise is that everything is taken care of by your crew which gives you more time to do, well, nothing. Although there will be times when you’ll be active, also make sure you enjoy a good book, listen to music or just sit on the deck to take it all in. After all, you’re on Kimberley time now!
Even in the coolest parts of the year, the Kimberley is hot so pack accordingly. Keep it casual with a few light outfits to avoid regretting that you’ve packed way too much. Make sure you pack a long sleeved shirt to protect yourself from the sun on excursions and a good hat. For cooler nights, all you’ll need is a light sweater or jacket. You’ll also often have to navigate the water so bring along some suitable reef sandals which can handle getting wet.
Bring medication for seasickness
Although you’ll most likely stick to calm waters, perfect conditions can’t be guaranteed and it’s best to come prepared with seasickness medication in case things get a little choppy. This is particularly important if you’re prone to motion sickness or if it’s your first time aboard a boat. You may never experience any sea sickness but it’s best to come prepared so you don’t waste your time aboard the vessel feeling unwell.
Speak to the crew
One of the best pieces of advice we can give you is to remember to take advantage of the knowledge of the crew aboard your vessel. Don’t be shy about asking questions throughout your time on the vessel – they’ll be more than happy to share what they know about the region. From fishing tips to top spots for exploring, you’ll be getting the best insider knowledge.
