Regions operating in: The Kimberley region, north-west of Western Australia

Pearl Sea Coastal Cruises provides a significant tourism experience and unique introduction to the spectacular wilderness areas of the Kimberley, normally only accessible by boat, helicopter and light aircraft. Specialising in 7- and 13-day nature-based eco-expeditions, we operate between the months of March and October catering for individuals and small groups accommodating just 18 passengers on scheduled cruises and exclusive private charters onboard our vessel Kimberley Quest II.

Kimberley Quest II is a luxury, 25-metre, fully air-conditioned expedition vessel equipped with its own helipad and spa. Custom-built for the remote Kimberley region, the vessel is arguably the perfect way to explore this vast coastline.

The ship carries three excursion tenders, and days are filled with a myriad of activities including exploring the waterways with your very own local guide who has extensive knowledge of the Kimberley region. Cool off in a freshwater pool; try and catch the infamous barramundi; or share one of our guide’s secret, rare art sites. The vessel is yours to finish the day in the spa located on the sundeck or enjoy one of the many indoor and outdoor dining areas taking in the panoramic scenery and breathtaking sunsets.

You can be sure that your Kimberley experience with us will exceed your expectations, as you can do as much or as little as you wish! So why not take the adventure with one of the Kimberley’s original explorers who are still discovering after 17 years of cruising…


Accommodating just 18 passengers and six crew, your holiday of a lifetime can be enjoyed with fellow travellers in small intimate surrounds. You have the choice of nine cabins from twin, double, superior and the exclusive flybridge. All cabins feature private ensuites, individual air-conditioning, viewing windows and mini-refrigerators, and are serviced daily by your hostess.


Pearl Sea Coastal Cruises offers buffet-style cuisine providing you with a variety of freshly prepared meals, including freshly caught fish, Kimberley oysters and mud crabs, which are prepared by our talented onboard chef. A choice of meal options is presented to cater for all preferences, with an emphasis on locally sourced fresh produce.


Custom-built to explore the Kimberley, on board there is a helipad, spa, extensive library including reference books and general interest novels, three tenders, 24-hour tea & coffee, open wheelhouse and galley, BOSE surround-sound music system and laundry service.
