Coral Discoverer Refurb + SAVE on 2023 Kimberley

Posted by Andrew Castles on February 10, 2023




With the 2023 Kimberley Cruising season set to commence in April, recent heavy rains across the region are sure to result in a bumper waterfall season for those lucky enough to cruise in the first half of the season.

One of our favourite expedition ships, the 72-passenger Coral Discoverer, commences her 2023 Kimberley schedule on 04 April, and guests boarding her in Darwin can look forward to several cosmetic enhancements and upgrades that were put in place during the ship’s recent maintenance period during December 2022. 

As is the case with entire Coral Expeditions fleet, Coral Discoverer undergoes regular refurbishment, and this year’s out-of-water maintenance allowed for the following works to be completed, ensuring the ship is looking completely revitalised for guests lucky enough to be joining her in the Kimberley in 2023:


·      New panoramic windows adorning the dining room and bridge deck lounge

·      New upholstery including dining room chairs and a reupholstered lounge in the bridge

·      New outdoor furnishings, including sun lounge cushions

·      The commencement of replacing bathroom fittings in all staterooms (ongoing).





Anyone who has travelled with Coral Expeditions in the past will appreciate their unique Xplorer excursion tenders, which allow expeditioners to access hard-to-reach locations normally only accessible to the smallest of ships. So, during these most recent works, the expedition team aboard Coral Discoverer were excited to receive a brand new Xplorer, which is slightly wider and longer than the previous model, allowing for an even more comfortable expedition experience. Updated features aboard the new Xplorer include a ‘shore connection’ that allows the tender’s batteries to be recharged while she is stowed on the hydraulic platform, and state-of-the-art 300 horse powered outboard engines providing even greater performance and reliability.








With heavy rains throughout the Kimberley over recent weeks, 2023 is shaping up as an unforgettable time to experience the big waterfalls of the Kimberley for yourself. And, as you’ll be cruising with Coral Expeditions you won’t have to deal with any road closures due to the floods as you make your way up the coast!

There’s still a number of cabins available for you to explore the Kimberley Coast across the 2023 season aboard Coral Expeditions’ fleet of small ships, the intimate 72-passenger Coral Discoverer and state-of-the-art sister ships Coral Adventurer and Geographer.
