The scenery was a photographer's dream

As the Kimberley region in WA is remote and difficult to experience, we thought a cruise would show us the wilderness, safely and in relative comfort. We had travelled the Gibb River road, some years ago, but wanted to the see the coast and the interesting islands off shore. We also wanted to see the Indigenous art galleries, which are not readily accessible. And we were not disappointed. We ...

5 star ship brilliantly equipped for this cruise 4 to 5 star excursions with spectacular scenery 4 star food and service mainly due to insufficient staff My wife and I loved this trip. We wanted to see the Kimberley coast for years, and this cruise was a magnificent way to do it. We were on the Coral Geographer (built 2021) from Darwin to Broome on 25 May to 4 June 2022, suite 515.

True North, what an experience. It would have to be the best cruise we have experienced. Captain Gav and his crew were "Simply the Best!!" Treated us like family.

If you want an experience The Kimberley Region and all it has to offer, then these are the people to show you it all. From the tender boat rides which included fishing - OMG was that something, mud crabbing. Then if you just want to experience the beauty of the gorges and waterfalls you've got it, either by tender boats or the helicopter with Sam your pilot. Deke ticked off his bucket list the ...

We enjoyed every minute of this unique cruise. The ship & its facilities were first class. The crew at all levels were fantastic. Cabins, cleanliness, & overall efficiency were first class. The excursions were well planned, the Explorer craft were comfortable & well suited for their purpose. Unique scenery both on & offshore. The casual atmosphere was ideally suited to this type of cruise. The ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We cruised Darwin to Broome, with 110 passengers. Unfortunately one 'Explorer' (smaller boat for shore excursions) was being repaired in Darwin, so we had to manage with only one. The staff managed the daily excursions extremely well with balancing this and we all enjoyed the excursions. The food was wonderful, a very high standard, with great menu choices. The only thing to criticise would ...

It is not always about luxury.

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Most reviews focus on luxury and the ship’s amenities, but when on an expedition cruise, especially in remote areas, the safety of guests is often overlooked. During a fishing excursion a fellow guest experienced a subtle but potentially very serious medical event. Nick who was the guide was very observant to notice and assess the situation. He immediately radioed the ship and commenced a ...

Luxury of experiencing Coral Geographer, a brand new small ship in Australia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I chose this cruise because I love small ships and Coral Geographer was my first brand new small ship. This was a 11 night repositioning cruise from Cairns, Queensland, because Western Australia was closed to interstate passengers due to covid restrictions. There was no single supplement. There were only 27 passengers on board due to short notice of this cruise. The ship had a Sailsafe ...

Generally Excellent Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The pre-cruise forms were very repetitive, with the company requesting the same information on different forms, possibly due to them dealing with Covid. The health side of it was very thorough, requiring a GP report, PCR test and a pre-boarding RAT. Check-in was reasonable although the departure wharf (a cement wharf) was less than glamorous. A few fads revealed themselves during the trip. ...

We were lucky enough to do a 10day cruise to the Rowley Shoals and then up the Kimberley coast late last year to Wyndham and I cannot speak more highly of the experience. It was truly magical and I revisit the Heli picnic location whenever I meditate or need to take 5 to breathe - it will forever be embedded as one of the most memorably beautiful spots in the world and has become my happy place. ...

What a fantastic company to deal with and a fantastic cruise. We were very fortunate to be able to do a Broome to Darwin cruise in August 2021. With all the difficulties related to travel in the current times, we always found Coral Expeditions fantastic to deal with. Always able to talk to them on the phone and always very helpful with the information they provided. Our cruise on the Coral ...
