Coral Discoverer

One of our most popular small ships, the incredibly stylish 72-passenger Coral Discoverer offers outstanding Kimberley cruising over ten nights between Darwin and Broome. 

About Coral Discoverer

The state-of-the-art Coral Discoverer is the grand vision of Coral Expeditions, the pioneers in Kimberley cruises. Originally launched in 2005, Coral Discoverer remains one of the most technologically-advanced expedition ships operating in the Kimberley, and a major modernisation and refurbishment in December 2016 has enhanced her reputation as one of the best choices for an unforgettable Kimberley cruise.

At 63 metres in length and accommodating just 72 travellers, Coral Discoverer offers all the flexibility and accessibility of much smaller ships, along with amenities and comforts you would expect to find on larger vessels. One of her great advantages is her flexible range of excursion craft, from a fleet of inflatable zodiacs, through to the unique Xplorer excursion tender which allows access to even the most hard-to-reach locations on the coast. Her expedition teams are also some of the ‘best in the business’; engaging, approachable and knowledgeable, these experts in their fields will ensure you get to truly know the Kimberley, it’s history, geology, wildlife and legends.

Right throughout  your expedition you will savour outstanding dining experiences. Coral Discoverer’s panoramic Dining Room offers open-seat dining without the need to reserve a table, allowing you to dine with old or new friends on each occasion. Start the day with your choice of a continental breakfast, complete with cereals, fresh fruits and yoghurts or enjoy a fully-cooked breakfast buffet complemented by daily made-to-order specialties.

The lunch buffet showcases a variety of hot and cold dishes; from salads and cold cuts to lighter soups and fresh local seafoods and tropical fruits.
Reflect on each exciting day of discovery and savour the table service and hospitality of the Dining Room staff over a delicious three-course dinner from the table d’hôte menu. There is always a choice of main course options. Vegetarian and other dietary requirements can be catered for. Lunches and dinners are accompanied by a carefully curated wine list featuring artisanal Australian and New Zealand wines. Table wines and beer during meal service are included.

​Australian flagged, and staffed entirely by an Australian and New Zealand crew of 20, your cruise aboard Coral Discoverer will remain in your memory for a lifetime.
