Tubs and Jules,
This is a belated thanks for just an outstanding trip to your magnificent
Kimberley Coastal Camp from May 29 to June 2. I was lucky enough to be part
of a group of 14 fishing mates.
From when we booked onto the Paspaley Pearls seaplane in Darwin and until we
left by seaplane the hospitality was beyond outstanding, nothing was ever a
problem and delivered with a smile, a joke or a great Aussie laugh.
We had five days of action-packed fishing, catching heaps of fish, with the
group catching 308 fish (across 33 different species), every day was a new
experience with a different guide across the group. To be able to pull up
on a secluded deserted beach, or on the stunning Steep Head Island and have
the fish we caught in the morning cooked on a camp stove washed down by a
crisp Pinot Grigio were money you can’t buy experiences.
Then each night the way you Jules were able to transform our catches into
the most amazing meals was amazing. I hate to think what our 6-star
restaurant meals would have cost in a Sydney restaurant. Particularly the
mud crab feast on the last night. Let alone the inclusion of all the
beautiful wines, beers and spirits to keep us all socially excited across
the five days.
Tubs, I can safely say the entire group was very happy you recommended the
cultural walk, everyone left with a far deeper understanding of our first
nations people and their amazing history and heritage that you delivered
with such a deep knowledge, understanding and you could feel your personal
passion for the local tribe. Quite inspirational.
We all loved the simplicity and uniqueness of our accommodation, and the
pool was a great way to refresh after the days fishing. What more could
you ask for!!!
And before closing I must call out Macca who I was lucky enough to have as
my guide for two days, he was an outstanding guide, who was patient and
willing to spend time making our group on each day better fisherman whilst
also catching some great fish. I can honestly say I reckon I learnt more
from Macca in 2 days than the previous five trips to other places.
(Tubs, just for the record you weren’t a bad guide either)
KCC in simple terms exceeded all expectations and over delivered on all
fronts. What a fishing trip!!!! We will be back.
Thanks for everything.
