We have a boat launching beach 1.5km away from the main complex.
The beach is firm compacted sand. Guests need to be aware of the tidal movements and ensure vehicles are parked well above the tide line.

There are many different shore fishing areas around the Cape, with some good exposed reef areas in the bay of the boat launching beach.
There is good boat bottom/drift fishing off the end of the reef system or just out past that on the tide line for troll fishing. The western side is also a good area for trolling and mackerel, tuna, cobia and sailfish are the fish that can be picked up in these areas. Barramundi are a rare catch in our local creeks due to the clarity of the water.
Oolard II will take you to some close inshore reefs and fish for species such spangled emperors, coral trout and blue bone. Bait and handlines are provided. We do promote catch and release and guests are limited to taking 1 fish per person home.

There is beautiful swimming and snorkelling at Kooljaman. Rock pools, clear water and abundant tropical fish make this a very enjoyable activity. Snorkels and masks are available to hire.
People swim all year round and to date we have never had any problems with crocodiles or stingers in and around the swimming beach of Kooljaman. Our beaches are white sands and clear water with negligible surf, water temperature of around 26 degrees in June/July/August, increasing up to 33 degrees during Jan/Feb/March.
We have a pool of local aboriginal guides who offer a wide range of tours. These are not always structured tours and are available very much on a day to day basis and can be arranged through our office or directly with the guides.
Cultural tours usually available include: mudcrabbing, bush tucker, cultural walks, 4WD Scenic Tag-a-long (including swimming, snorkeling and fishing) etc
There are a range of walks you can do while at Kooljaman - beach walks along the Eastern and Western Beach, reef walks at low-tide and the interpretive boardwalk through the coastal vine thicket.
The Interpretive boardwalk gives infomation on the local flora and fauna in the area, the local Bardi seasonal calendar and history on the Cape Leveque lighthouse.
From mid July - October there is plenty of whale activity just off shore with the humpback whales making a southward journey, having recently calved approximately 200kms north of Cape Leveque.
It is not necessary to take a boat to view this activitiy, with or without binoculars it is a worthy spectable.
