Orion Kimberleys – Day 9: Raft Point/Montgomery Reef

We set off this morning to view the outdoor aboriginal art of the Dreamtime Wandjina spirits at Raft Point.

Later in the day, Orion repositioned to be closer to Montgomery Reef, where our arrival was timed to meet the falling tide. The massive reef system appeared as the tide dropped and water cascaded, which was thrilling to watch.

The Zodiacs took us so close to the reef and its wildlife, including a sun baking crocodile and sea snakes. On the way back to the ship we made a detour to a small sandy island where we were surprised by some of the Orion staff and handed Mai Tai cocktails.

This evening we were entertained by a wonderful crew show.
