Ahoy Buccaneers, which specialises in affordable Kimberly cruises for all ages, is offering an early bird special for six expedition voyages in March and October 2018, which gives guests a free night’s accommodation in a four-star hotel before and after their cruise.
Bookings must be made before March 15, 2017, to receive the two free nights’ accommodation. The deal is valid for three 13-day cruises in February and March, 2018, which travel from Broome to Wyndham or vice versa, and three Buccaneer Archipelago cruises in October, 2018, which are seven-day, round-trip cruises from Broome.
Offering an alternative to traditional cruises, Ahoy Buccaneers takes guests into areas inaccessible to large ships as they explore the rugged cliffs, spectacular waterfalls and pristine waters of the Buccaneer Archipelago in the Kimberly region of Western Australia.
Guests travel on board Oceanic, Ahoy Buccaneer’s 25-guest motor yacht, providing an intimate and relaxed atmosphere, with guests encouraged to help fish or sail the boat.
The 13-day Broome to Wyndham cruises in February and March, 2018, offer guests a comprehensive and in-depth exploration of the 2000 islands, stunning waterfalls and lively marine parks that comprise the Kimberly coastline. As the cruises depart during the wet season, guests can witness the summer storms, spectacular light shows and swollen waterfalls that the Kimberly is renowned for.
Because of its small size, Oceanic is able to anchor much closer to the shore than other vessels, with daily excursions that include fishing, swimming in fresh waterholes, beach combing, exploring aboriginal art, beach camp fires and hiking in some of the remotest parts of the Kimberley. Whale watching is also a feature during October.
The 13-day Broome to Wyndham cruises depart on February 26 and March 26, 2018, and a Wyndham to Broome cruise departs March 12, 2018. Each costs from $4400 per person (including for solos) in a swag and from $5500 per person in a cabin, twin-share, or if sharing with another solo passenger. The free accommodation will be at four-star hotels in Broome and also Kununurra near Wyndham.
The seven-day Buccaneer Archipelago cruises in October, 2018, will explore secluded beaches, river inlets, awe-inspiring gorges, ancient cultural history and indigenous rock art. Guests will have opportunities to swim in waterholes, cast a line, collect black lipped oysters off the rocks, hike and explore the islands or relax in the on-board spa. Each island-hopping adventure varies slightly due to tides and conditions, but the breathtaking Horizontal Falls at Talbot Bay is always included as part of the itinerary.
The Buccaneer Archipelago cruises depart October 1, 8 and 29, 2018, and cost from $2200 per person (including for solos) in a swag and from $2800 per person in a cabin, twin-share, or if sharing with another solo passenger twin-share. Bookings made for one of the six cruises by March 15, 2017, will receive the two free nights’ accommodation. Fares include meals and transfers.
