Kimberley Quest Fishing Expedition
The vastness of the remote Kimberley region is undoubtedly a very special part of our land. Depending on how long you stay aboard with us, we can show you thousands of islands, deep gorges, vast mud flats, tidal pools and high waterfalls gushing with torrents of fresh water.
The Kimberley region has some of the most magnificent waterfalls such as Kings Cascades, Horizontal Waterfalls and King George Falls to name a few.
Cost Per Person
The large river systems, many of them un-named, are teeming with fish and the ever formidable barramundi can be found and skill fully caught in these rivers and the tidal creeks. Water lilies, prehistoric ferns and many species of birds are abundant along with the ever imposing saltwater crocodile.
The Kimberley Quest can take you to many spectacular places - Cascade Bay, Inland Sea, Cone Bay, Talbot Bay, Strickland Bay, Whirlpool Passage, Horizontal Waterfalls, Cockatoo Island, Crocodile Creek, and even further north to the Prince Regent and King George Rivers and onto Wyndham. We specialise in adventurous wilderness cruises and our aim is to give you a trip never to be forgotten.
All of the days that you will be fishing with Kimberley Quest will include a dingy (5 Metre) and a fishing guide. You will fish all daylight hours, usually coming back to Kimberley Quest for lunch. Lunch will be timed around the tides and after a short break, you will resume fishing until the sun goes down. Days are organised around the tides, so you will get the most out of your fishing time.

We take a maximum of 12 fishermen to ensure that there is ample space in our four custom-built 5m excursion tenders, all equipped with depth sounders and four-stroke 90HP Honda outboards.
All fishing excursions are accompanied by one of our experienced Kimberley fishing guides. We provide a large range of specialist rods and reels, as well as an extensive array of lures. Gear is provided, however you are of course welcome to bring your favourite lures and your own rod and reel.
Heli fishing is available at an additional cost. Note this is to be arranged with the office prior to departure.
This is only a suggested itinerary. The remote Kimberley region experiences large tidal movements which can affect our itinerary. We may need to vary this from time to time, however, no matter the tides, we always visit the spectacular icons of this region. There will be plenty of land and sightseeing excursions to many untouched places, and opportunities to catch fresh fish for the table.
