APRIL, SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER CRUISES: Willie may sail in Roebuck Bay instead of Cable Beach due to seasonal changes in wind and swell conditions. Sailing location will be confirmed on the day of departure subject to these conditions.

Willie Cruises and its experienced crew offers people the opportunity to experience the blue waters of Broome in Australia’s north west aboard ‘Willie’, one of the last operating pearl luggers in Australia. ‘Willie’, a  67’ Gaff Rig Schooner modelled on the designs of early 1900 pearl luggers was built to fish for mother of pearl shell Pinctada Maxima, the shell which put Broome on the map and shaped the history of the region as it is today.

Sailing the beautiful waters of Broome, ‘Willie’ allows you to see how a traditional gaff rigged sailing vessel operates with all sails heaved up manually just as our forefathers did, whilst taking in the beautiful sunset. With plenty of comfortable seating options aboard, anyone can enjoy the calm waters and natural beauty of the coastline surrounding Broome.

To make your cruise with us completely stress free we will pick you up in our courtesy bus from your location.  Once there you will be able to kick off your shoes and feel the beautiful sand and wet your feet in the warm Indian Ocean as you make your way to our waiting tender which will transfer you to ‘Willie’.  

You can completely relax hearing stories of the rich history and culture of the area, and enjoy the delightful complimentary canapes served by our crew and chilled beverages of your choice from our well stocked open deck bar.   Our crew will happily point out the abundance of marine life from turtles, seas snakes, dolphins and the mighty humpback whale, to dugongs, manta rays and the plethora of pelagic fish – all in a day aboard Willie Cruises.
