Today we cruise to the amazing Montgomery Reef which covers more than 300km², making it Australia’s largest inshore reef. Watch as the tide falls right before your eyes, creating a spectacular waterfall effect. Take a tender ride to view many marine species, including turtles and sea birds. Later we explore the Sale River taking an excursion upstream for a dip in the spring-fed rainforest pools. On the journey home we view ancient rock art from the tenders.  In the afternoon we cruise towards Steep Island, anchor below Raft Point and walk to the caves perched on the hill. Here is some of the finest well-preserved Wandjina art in the Kimberley.
