“Unforgettable experience!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Truly magnificent experience! What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It's not every day you get to sail on an 111year old boat. Crew were delightful and very helpful. Amy picked us up from our accomodation and regaled us with the very interesting history of the vessel. We got to swim at the back of the boat in the boom net. Later in the afternoon one of our party even landed a Spanish Mackerel, which we released back into the ocean! The sunset from the deck of
the boat, drink in hand is magnificent !
If you do one thing in Broome make sure you experience the beauty of Intombi. Thank you Amy, Ryan, Ellie and Nyle for a wonderful afternoon

“Bliss!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Of the many incredible experiences we had in and around Broome, this was our absolute favourite! We were overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the vessel especially under full sail. The crew were sensational, looking after very possible want or need with a smile. We swam in the boom net and scrambled back on board in time for drinks and nibbles as we watched a breathtakingly beautiful Broome sunset over the water. If you do nothing else while you are in Broome, don't miss this experience. Unforgettable!

“Beaut arvo out on the water”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Hop in the skiff and wiz out to the lugger over the turquoise water then a leisurely sail out into the bay with cool drink and snacks at hand. Then the sun drops as we return and the light show begins over the pindan and blue waters.

“100% recommend”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

This was an amazing trip - would recommend without hesitation to any traveller.
Amy picked us up from our accommodation, Ocre Moon B&B - which is also amazing. The air-conditioned mini bus was great and during the drive down she gave us insightful information into the Intombi's past.
We had a short ride on the tender across to the Intombi, which has been gracefully restored to a lovely leisure vessel. The crew were fantastic; knowledgable, friendly, safety conscious. The food served during the trip was awesome! Varied and delicious. We cruised up Cable beach and back, beautiful views! We were also lucky enough to have the most amazing sunset - so spent most of the time looking the other way.
We cannot praise this experience enough.
