The day prior to departure from Broome the group get together for a briefing by Kevin Smith your guide and multi award winning photographer, the get together is a great opportunity to meet others on the tour and get an update on the itinerary and an overview of what to expect.
The day of Departure guests are picked up from there hotel for the short drive to the airport to catch a flight on the Grumman G-73 Mallard float plane out to Kuri Bay approximately one and a half hours flying time from Broome.
The flight takes a North Easterly track over the Dampier Peninsula crossing Cygnet Bay the place were privateer Pirate William Dampier first made land fall in 1688, from there on over King Sound then Collier Bay and the Kingfisher islands and over Montgomery Reef.
Montgomery reef has massive tides that when dropping exposes the Reef creating water falls as the water runs off the top of the reef back into the ocean if the tides are right this is truly a world class natural wonder.
The flight continues north crossing Deception Bay on its final decent into the sheltered waters of Kuri Bay to reveal an ancient landscape that time forgot.
Our base camp for the next 7 days is Paspaley Pearls pearl farm it offers our guest comfortable accommodation in a true wilderness environment and its the ideal location from which to be based for the exploration of this ancient landscape of deep rocky gorges,remnant patches of rain forrest, limestone caves and pristine waterfalls set in the back drop of the mighty plateau's and towering cliffs.
At Kuri bay we are met by local guide Peter Tucker, Peter has 25 years experience and knowledge of the wildlife and landscapes on this section of coast, Peter guided for the hit BBC TV series Coast Australia which featured this area of the Kimberley coast. With Peters local knowledge and photography guide Kevin Smith its adds up to a team who are both extremely experienced and committed to providing you with the very best experience that will exceed your expectations.

When exploring out from Kuri bay we use boats to get you to areas that are inaccessible by land this opens up some country that even we haven’t explored before adding to the adventure.The wet season in the Kimberley offers a whole new dimension to the landscape and its truly an incredible time to view what is an already incredible landscape, the waterfalls and rock pools offer a welcome relief from the heat and swimming is always an option after a long day with camera.
