MV Great Escape Testimonials from our guests


Who is The Great Escape Charter Company?

A small family, owner / operator local Broome company, one of the original small group luxury adventure cruise operators exploring two of the most remote, pristine wilderness destinations in Australia's far northwest; the Kimberley Coast and the Rowley Shoals.

A Little bit about the about the boat

MV Great Escape is a 26 metre luxury catamaran accommodating just 14 guests (12 guests for fishing cruises) in 7 spacious and stylish staterooms with comfortable queen size beds (available in twin configuration). The Company encourages a relaxed atmosphere on board, casual dress code at all times and bare feet are encouraged.

Guests can choose between Panoramic View Staterooms, located on the mid and upper deck or the Horizon View Staterooms, located on the lower deck. All staterooms have private ensuites, personal fridges and flat screen televisions with DVD players. The fully air-conditioned vessel features a spacious lounge, foredeck spa, (where many guests enjoy a drink at sunset) indoor and outdoor dining areas, cascading front deck, sprawling back deck, coffee machine, satellite communications and a great crew of 6 to look after you onboard.

What can Great Escape offer you?

Activity based wilderness cruises give you the option to do as much or as little as you choose. In addition to exploring the iconic Kimberley waterfalls, gorges and stunning waterholes for swimming; activities include bushwalks to breathtaking vistas, excursions to ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries, mud crabbing, harvesting oysters, showering under tranquil cascades, swimming in white sandy beaches, croc spotting, whale watching, turtles, dolphins, captivating bird life and endless encounters with remarkable landscapes and wildlife.

The chef is a passionate foodie who loves creating incredibly good food and lots of it - best not to start a diet prior to cruising with GE. You will enjoy a unique and varied daily menu including what you catch.

An onboard Bell Jetranger helicopter is dedicated to guests, an opportunity to view the coastline and waterfalls from a thrilling aerial perspective as well as daily heli fishing and heli picnic adventures. Visiting rare aboriginal art sites inaccessible by foot are all possible additions to your experience. (If you are on a 4, 6 or 7 night Kimberley cruise a helicopter transfer to / from boat is included).

8 Great Reasons to choose MV Great Escape for your Kimberley Adventure Cruise:

1. MV Great Escape is the smallest luxury vessel in the Kimberley with an onboard helicopter and are therefore able to offer true flexibility in itineraries meaning we can tailor to suit guests on board. It also enables us to see and explore more of the coastline in greater detail than some of the larger vessels unable to access these "hard to navigate" places.

2. Your skippers own the Great Escape Charter Company with over 35 years navigating the Kimberley coast between them, so you have local know how and crew which gives you access to local secret spots that the larger vessels simply don't know about.

3. With only 14 guests on board you experience the Kimberley up close and personal rather than as a pack.

4. Onboard helicopter flies with the doors off giving you prime aerial vantage point for exquisite landscape photographs

5. MV Great Escape is the only vessel in the Kimberley to have "Real Time" satellite television for big events like the Grand Final and Melbourne Cup Day you may not bear to miss

6. For people short on time and money Great Escape are the only luxury vessel with onboard helicopter to offer a 4 night Quintessential Kimberley Coast Escape, a wonderful "taste of the Kimberley shoreline" just to whet your appetite for more.

7. The term "Relaxed Luxury" is how many guests describe being aboard Great Escape, both comfortable yet stylish with a professional genuineness amongst the crew who will join you for a gourmet 3 course dinner on most evenings.

8. Alcohol is BYO on Great Escape, staff & crew will arrange this with you prior to cruising so your preferred drop is cool and on board awaiting your arrival.
