Week 36 – Kimberley BTS Day 3B – Montgomery Reef, Western Australia
After the fishing adventure in the morning we cruised to Montgomery Reef. This place is amazing & you have to watch the video to get an idea of what I mean. Due to the massive tides in the Kimberley (sometimes up to 14m) Montgomery Reef has waterfalls rushing down the side of the reef as the water tries to escape. The reef is full of life, numerous turtles, sharks, stingrays, trevally & other fish, it really is a unique experience. After checking out the sharks the crew politely asks if you would like to go for a swim on a near by sand key (which by the way disappeared shortly after we left due to the rising tide). Interestingly enough most people decided they would brave the shaky waters and have a quick dip.
