One Tide Charters

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

One Tide Charters offers adventure cruises designed for travellers who have a sense of adventure and are keen to go beyond standard cruise itineraries. Cruises depart from and return to the Kimberley town of Derby and are 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 days duration.

One Tide Charters specialises in visiting places and offering activities that other operators are unable to include in their itineraries.

With the option of either camping on secluded beaches or rolling out a swag onboard their vessel (the Kimberley Xplorer), their cruises are an authentic Australian wilderness experience with an emphasis on providing the opportunity for clients to physically explore the Kimberley’s vast and rugged coastline.

Being an owner-operated business (your skipper owns the business) you are assured of a cruising experience with an operator who not only knows the coastline intimately, but is passionate about making sure his passengers get to see the best that the amazing Kimberley coastline has to offer. Trips are fully catered for with fresh fish, oysters and mud crabs offering superb cuisine. Delicious home-cooked meals are also available for those who don’t eat seafood. Dietary requirements are also catered for.

Customised cruises of a longer duration or exclusive charters can also be arranged. All their cruises incorporate the magnificent Horizontal Waterfalls.


The ultimate cruise experience is One Tide Charters’ 12-Day Kimberley Cruise which combines the major Buccaneer Archipelago icons of the Prince Regent River, Sale River, Montgomery Reef and the Horizontal Waterfalls. During the twelve days, there is ample time to incorporate land excursions with time to relax on secluded beaches.

With the benefit of a host with local knowledge, a passion for adventure and the most incredible sense of humour, you are assured your cruise to the Buccaneer Archipelago will be a rewarding and memorable experience.

This cruise takes in the incredible beauty of the Buccaneer Archipelago and its maze of waterways, islands and bays. Swim in the crystal clear waters of Silica Beach, and marvel at the awe-inspiring natural power of the Horizontal Waterfalls.

Experience the excitement of navigating Whirlpool Passage and the phenomenal tidal movements at Montgomery Reef where marine life and bird life abound. A sunset visit to Starfish Island is something to remember.

There are multiple opportunities for freshwater swims in magical pockets of the Kimberley rainforest and plenty of time to fish or catch a mud crab. The chef can cook up your catch!

A dinghy trip through an enchanting mangrove creek system followed by a hike to Ruby Falls and a freshwater swim are definite highlights.

There are surprises around every corner, from marine life to birdlife to breathtaking scenery and sunsets. The eight-day cruise is a fabulous snapshot of the Kimberley Coast.
