Located around 330km north of Broome, 220km from Derby and situated smack in the middle of the Lalang-Garram/Camden Sound Marine Park on the West Kimberley coast, the Paspaley Pearling base was built by the Japanese in the 1950s and the bay is named after one of the site’s founders, Tokuichi Kuribayashi.
Up until 2016 the area has been inaccessible to the general public. This fact alone makes Kuri Bay a must-do destination.
Peter Tucker (Tux), a well-known Kimberley fishing guide and character with 30 years in the industry on the Kimberley coast has, with minimum intervention, transformed Australia’s oldest pearl farm into a world-class fishing destination at the invitation of the Paspaley Pearls group.
Kimberley sportfishing at Kuri Bay can only be described as “Mind Blowing”.
Tours depart on Friday from Broome Airport, and are of 7 nights and 8 days duration.
Accommodation is the old pearlers quarters. It is dormitory style accommodation where each individual has their own room, very comfortable and private. We also offer a self-contained cabin for couples or small families.
We pride ourselves in preparing and presenting quality meals from the catch of the day to freshly grown garden greens.
You have the choice as an angler to bring your own gear or use the range of quality outfits supplied by Kuri Bay Sport Fishing.
