Roebuck Bay is an incredibly diverse ecosystem and its extensive seagrass meadows are home to a myriad of marine life. Our Eco Tour takes our guests to see our resident snubfin dolphins in the stunning turquoise bay, and other residents are frequently seen throughout the tour.
As pioneers of whale watching in the Kimberley, our passion for marine life and desire to share the incredibly diverse ecosystem of Roebuck Bay has become our next venture.
In 2015 Roebuck Bay became of international importance and was declared a Marine Protected Area. What was once an embayment for pearling and a channel for trade, is increasingly becoming known as one of the most diverse mudflats in the world, making it one of 12 Ramsar sites in Western Australia.
If you are looking for some things to do in Broome, this eco dolphin cruise should be added to your Broome bucket list. Whatever month you choose to cruise Roebuck Bay, Western Australia, there is bound to be some friendly dolphin, turtle or dugong ready to say g’day.
Relax on a morning discovery as we search for one of Australia’s largest population of snubfin dolphins and an array of marine life in Roebuck Bay. Spot snubfin dolphins or bottlenose dolphins socialising and having fun in the sun on your morning dolphin cruise. Depending on the seasons, you could catch a glimpse of the graceful manta rays or watch turtles bobbing their heads on the water.
If time allows, add a bit of adventure to the end of your wildlife encounters. Why not have a go at swimming in the boom net? Boom netting involves securely riding within the edges of a large net that is attached to the rear of a boat. Our vessel ‘Orcaella’ will slowly cruise along the shallows of Roebuck Bay as you hop into the net. The boom net will drag you through the water whilst holding on and enjoying the stunning contrasting colours of the Kimberley coast. Swimming is only permitted during certain times of the year when water conditions are suitable. This activity requires a reasonable level of fitness and you must be a competent swimmer. Children under the age of 12 years must be accompanied by an adult. Boom netting available during certain times of the year.
Free door to door bus service provided with freshly baked morning tea and hot beverages on board.
