There aren’t enough good words to use about these guys. Flawless. Honestly I think the best thing I have ever done on a holiday, and that’s saying something! Having done day trips to the reef before I was really underwhelmed. I don’t dive (though the amazing dive instructor with Coral gave me the confidence in the free skills class that I ended up doing an hour dive!) but I love snorkeling. This cruise suits anyone from experienced divers to non-swimmers, as there’s a dive instructor on board taking any level of experience, all the snorkeling equipment you could need (and staff even taking time to teach people snorkeling who hadn’t been before/guiding weak swimmers) plus glass bottom boat for non-swimmers. Marine biologist on-board was so knowledgeable; glass bottom boat took us to and from shore on Lizard Island and did a few other trips every day to see the reef and learn about it too. I did them all! Snorkeling was unbelievable – the cruise visits 5 different reef sites, including all three types of reef. The boat was amazing; very comfortable and cabins brilliant. Rooms cleaned daily, as well as turn down service in the evenings. Every need was taken care of, food was AMAZING (full breakfast and lunches as well as varying between buffet and a la carte dinners, plus morning and afternoon tea). I am a foodie and I was impressed. To put it into a nutshell… our first afternoon on the beach at Lizard Island we watched the sun go down while eating canapés and oysters and drinking champagne. The next day on our excursion ashore the chef had made a selection of fresh macaroons. It was to die for. I could go on and on, but it was a phenomenal way to REALLY see the outer reef at its best. Already thinking of booking it for my dad when he goes to Oz next year and have recommended to a client already. We were so lucky with the weather – I didn’t take many pics but here’s one of waking up to perfectly calm seas at Lizard Island! We were very lucky that there was only 17 of us aboard (takes up to 40) and 12 staff members, but I have no doubt the service would be just as great regardless, the staff were SO good. I could go on about it for hours seriously it was PHENOMENAL…

I wanted to thank you for all the help you gave me in organising my trip on Coral Expeditions 1. It was the trip of a life time for me. My fabulous cabin was very luxurious, the staff amazing ( like staying with family) and the activities always interesting. The chef produced amazing food to the extent one of the guests said ” couldn’t you serve something I don’t like”! Tom Collis the guest lecturer was a mine of information which he always presented in a friendly easily accessible way.

I do want to tell you that my wife and I often sing your praises and when asked, we always tell people, whether asked on other cruises, or on any other occasions, that some of the happiest and best overall organisation in cruising which we have done, has been with Coral Expeditions. On the 30 or so cruises we have done, including many ranging from a number of other operators, we always remember and refer to the Kimberley cruise with you from Darwin to Broome, as a highlight among the many and thank you again and again for the many happy memories you and your people have given us.
John S. | The Kimberley | April 2016
“We enjoyed this cruising so much, we have been on five more cruises and have wonderful memories of the stunning Kimberley area and going through the Horizontal Waterfalls in the zodiac, visiting many small islands of Melanesia and Papua, and to New Zealand, seeing the uniqueness of the local people. We have recently been on our sixth cruise – this was Darwin to Cape York and Arnhem Land and on to Cairns, visiting the Tiwi Islands, Cobourg Peninsula and Torres Strait Islands, again seeing the diversity of local people, and again being able to access diverse and spectacular remote areas in the small ship. We enjoyed and admired the beauty of sunset at the tip of Australia and then cruised, snorkelled and swam in the Barrier Reef, among beautiful coral and fish. The features we enjoyed on our first cruise still draw us back and we look forward to more memorable experiences, eco – adventure cruising with Coral Expeditions.”
Jenny and Sel G. | Cape York and Arnhem Land | March 2016
“Thoroughly enjoyed cruise. Staff have a good sense of humor greatly appreciated and helpful at all times. Lectures and interpretive content – ‘Local information and knowledge very valuable – brought it all to life. Your choice of Kathy (Guest Lecturer) was excellent! – a living treasure of the areas visited gave our experience so much depth! The scenery was remarkable.”
