“Great finale to a week in Broome”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Our last afternoon in Broome was a very pleasant one aboard the Intombi. The crew were very helpful and the food, although a little short of the gourmet tag, was plentiful and very acceptable. The first drink on the house was a nice touch. We will do this trip next time we are in Broome.

“could not get on.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We attempted on no less than FIVE different occasions to try and get a booking. We were twice told we had secured a booking(on one occasion a week prior) only to be told there were not enough to make up a cruise and were cancelled on the morning of the cruise. Every other occasion we were informed that they were fully booked but could go on a waiting list and they would contact us. we heard nothing.
I'm sure it is a lovely cruise but I guess the only way I'll know is by reading about it.

“Wonderful afternoon - again !”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

My wife and I are enjoying our third trip to Broome, and today we had our third afternoon on Intombi. As in previous years, we had a fabulous time. Ryan and his vessel and crew ensured we were able to enjoy the beautiful Indian Ocean - and that exquisite sunset - from the most relaxing vantage point. Hopefully we will be back in Broome, and if so we will definitely return to Intombi.

Best four hours I ever spent on a boat. It was terrific fun, the owners were friendly and informative, the nibblies were plentiful and drinks were available. Recommended.

“What better way to watch the sunset in Broome!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

A great afternoon out on the Intombi! Very relaxing, a small group of about 20 people. A few drinks and finger foods, as you cruise along. A very nice way to watch the beautiful sunset, We were out on the water for quite a few hours, definitely good value!
