Fishing and Food on The Great Escape

by Jo Durbridge | Jan 21, 2015

Deb gets ready to enjoy a Kimberley cruise on The Great Escape and continues her blog... 

Another delicious buffet breakfast then we said farewell to Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa.

Our Great Escape ride arrived to take us to the airport where we were flown to a remote airstrip to then board a helicopter. "Scorcher" the helicopter pilot was really informative and friendly and put our minds at ease at having no doors!!!

A spectacular flight ended when we landed onto the flight deck of The Great Escape.

Before we knew it we were all in dinghys heading to the amazing Ruby Falls for a cool off swim and a stunning welcome to that part of the Kimberley.

After a delicious lunch we joined some of the crew and headed out fishing. Amazing how in a very short span of time we caught fingermark and mangrove jacks. It made for an exciting time and fresh fish for lunch tomorrow.

Some unlucky fish caught by passengers on the Great Escape in the Kimberley.

We all cleaned up and Ben the chef made a dinner which many restaurants would love to serve.
