About

Absolute Ocean Charters is a small family owned and operated business. Owners Michael (Mick) and Kelly Woodley started the business in 2009 and have over 30yrs experience working on the local Broome and Kimberley waters.

Nine times out of ten Mick will be the one welcoming you aboard, while Kelly will be the one taking your booking over the phone. They have great knowledge of the ocean and take pride in showing their guests the natural wonders that are in their backyard.

AOC acknowledges that our operations take place on the traditional land and seas of the Yawuru people and we pay our respects to the elders past, present and emerging.

Absolute Ocean Charters Team
They have a love for the ocean and have kept the same motto since day 1

‘We are prepared to travel the extra mile to make your experience a more memorable one!’

The ‘Ocean is Yours’ is often cited by Mick and Kelly. In other words, we must look after the ocean, care for and nurture the ocean and all things living in this amazing eco system. Yet, the ocean is yours to also enjoy, revel in and be amazed by its charm and beauty. AOC was founded with a basis of utmost respect for the ocean and for our experiences with it.

Absolute Ocean Charters is Broome’s longest operating reef fishing,  whale watching and eco wildlife charter company that has now received Green Travel Leader status in 2023. Being recognised for 10yrs of continued Ecotourism Australia certification is something the company is very proud of, and is a testament to their dedication to excellence in sustainable tourism experiences. Whichever Absolute Ocean Charter’s adventure you choose, you can be confident you are in the best hands with the most experienced crew!

Come with the best in the North West and enjoy a beautiful day exploring the turquoise waters of Broome.

Plus let’s not forget, our spectacular Roebuck Bay Eco Snubfin Dolphin Cruise as we cruise around Gantheaume Point and into Roebuck Bay, spotting Snubfin dolphins, turtles, sea snakes, birdlife, Manta ray and the rare Dugong! A variety of sweet and savoury appetisers are complimented with icy cold drinks, while you take in the biodiversity of fauna in the area under the guidance of our expert Marine Biologist.

Fishing

Immerse in a full or half-day fishing charter catching quality table fish for dinner, or earning bragging rights by landing great fighting sport fish! Explore our local creek systems and try your hand at landing a Barramundi or a Mud Crab, all the while taking in the picturesque sites of the mangroves. Whether you’re an amateur or expert, our experienced staff are always on hand to help.

Whale Cruise

Or, if you’d prefer a more hands-off experience, enjoy an awe-inspiring afternoon viewing the majestic Humpback whales as they migrate their way along the Kimberley coast. Relax in comfort on one of the daybeds while our Marine Biologist keeps you informed and up-to-date on all the fascinating facts! Listen to whale song through our hydrophone whilst enjoying light refreshments and icy cold drinks. Top off your eco adventure cruise with one of Broome’s magnificent sunsets on the ride home!
