Hot off the press, we're excited to announce that Coral Expeditions has just released their 2020 Kimberley cruise schedule, meaning now's the time to lock in that once-in-a-lifetime Kimberley cruise. Although 2020 might still seem a long way off, and you might think you have plenty of time to book your cruise, the incredible popularity of Kimberley cruising means that many of the peak season dates will be quickly snapped over coming weeks.
Whether you’re planning to travel during the waterfall season (April and May) or in June and July – traditionally the busiest time of year (mainly for southern folks trying to escape the winter chill for a bit of warmth in the Kimberley) - by booking early you can pick the most suitable cruise date, and you’re more likely to secure your first-choice cabin type. You can also ask us about some great early booking bonuses when you lock in your cruise for 2020.
It's little wonder that Coral Expeditions' Kimberley cruises are so popular. They are one of the true pioneers of Kimberley cruising. In fact, Coral Expeditions were the first major operator to plan expeditions along the length of this outback coast back in 1996, utilising a comprehensive itinerary put together by our very own Tony Briggs. Today, as they prepare fo their 24th season, Coral Expeditions' ten-night adventure cruise itinerary between Darwin and Broome (and vice versa) remains as popular as ever for travellers. When you take to the seas on one of Coral Expeditions’ adventure cruises you are assured of seeing all of the Kimberley’s must see icons, from Horizontal Falls to amazing Montgomery Reef, King George Falls and King Cascades to the world’s oldest Aboriginal rock art. And, to make sure you make the most of every minute of your adventure, you'll travel in the company of some of the region's best expert guides and lecturers.
In 2020 you will be able to choose from two outstanding small ships. The ever-popular 72-passenger Coral Discoverer and the new 120-passenger Coral Adventurer as she commences her second season of Kimberley cruising. Here’s a summary of what’s on offer for 2020.
Coral Discoverer 2020 Kimberley Schedule
One of our most popular Kimberley small ships, Coral Discoverer was purpose-built with Kimberley cruises in mind. At 63 metres in length and accommodating just 72 guests, many cruisers consider her 'the perfect size'. Small enough to ensure that you get to know all of your fellow travellers, while large enough to offer outstanding facilities and plenty of space. Following a refurbishment in Singapore (to the tune of several million dollars) her reputation as one of the Kimberley’s best expedition ships cannot be denied. Her Balcony Staterooms are incredibly popular; so if you want to secure one of those on 2020 departures we suggest you get in touch with us right away.

The ‘big sister’ of the Coral Expeditions fleet, the new, state-of-the-art Coral Adventurer is due to be launched in early 2019 and will commence her second Kimberley season in April of 2020. At just over 90 metres in length and accommodating 120 guests, Coral Adventurer offers all the modern conveniences and latest technologies, whilst retaining the comfortable and informal onboard experience for which Coral Expeditions is renowned. Over half of the ship's 60 staterooms offer private balconies, whilst the ship's two luxurious Bridge Deck Suites sell out almost immediately upon release - so you will need to be quick to snap up one of those!
