If meeting at the cruise departure location – Gantheaume Beach – you will be required to be there by 2:15pm as the cruise aims to leave the mooring between 2:30pm and 3pm – depending on sunset time.
On arrival at Gantheaume Beach we will take you out from the beach via a smaller tender vessel to our cruise vessel, The Crusader. There may be the need to do several rotations with the tender prior to The Crusader being fully loaded, or disembarked. Refreshments are provided throughout boarding, and this is a chance for you to relax on board the boat and get to know our crew, or swim from the beach if you wish.
CRUISE DEPARTURE LOCATION
Gantheaume Beach, Gantheaume Point Rd, Broome WA 6725.
This tour requires all guests (under supervision from crew) to step from the beach or very shallow water onto a tender (about 30cm), and then from the tender onto the main boat, and so you must be mobile enough to do this. If you have any people in your group with any special mobility requirements, please contact our booking office on +61 8 9586 1136 to discuss if this tour is suitable.
