Ahoy Buccaneers, which offers unique Kimberly motor yacht expeditions one quarter of the cost of more luxurious cruises in the region, has released a last-minute offer for bookings on three sailings through the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago this October.
Bookings for seven-day, round-trip cruises departing Broome October 10 and 31, 2016, or a 13-day return sailing to the Buccaneer and Bonaparte islands departing October 17, 2016, will receive up to five nights’ free, four-star accommodation at Oaks Cable Beach Sanctuary or Blue Seas Resort in Broome.
Under the offer, which is available until sold out, bookings in double cabins will receive accommodation for five consecutive nights or, alternatively, one night before and after the cruise. Bookings in single cabins or supplied swags on the beach each night will receive one free night’s accommodation in Broome before the cruise and one free night after.
The island-hopping cruises are aboard Ahoy Buccaneer’s 25-guest motor yacht, Oceanic, which offers double bed and bunk cabins as well as the opportunity for passengers to go ashore to sleep on the beach each night around a campfire under the stars in deluxe swags boasts. The 24m rigged vessel also boasts indoor and outdoor dining areas, two lounges and a deck spa. Fresh and healthy cuisine is prepared by an onboard cook who regularly sources much of the menu from what is caught from the sea each day. Time-honoured comfort foods like apple crumble, bread and butter pudding and chocolate brownies are also a post-meal favourite on deck.
Broome couple, Shelley and Doug Gould, established Ahoy Buccaneers in 2015 to offer everyday Australians affordable and unhurried adventures along the spectacular Kimberley coastline with its hundreds of deserted islands, rugged cliffs, secluded bays, breathtaking waterfalls and ancient indigenous art. The atmosphere onboard Oceanic is barefoot casual and friendly, with guests encouraged to help fish or sail the Oceanic. Requests can also be taken on what destinations to sail to. Cruises run from February to November each year.
