We are just back from a superb 5 days out at Rowley Shoal diving. We were well looked after on the Reef Prince in understated good service and facilities. Nick the captain and dive master worked well with Brook the coordinator and the rest of the crew to provide great food and exquisite diving (and snorkelling for those who weren't diving). There was also fishing available for those inclined. I would recommend the Shoals to any divers interested in biodiversity, fish, corals, walls, canyons and gutters. I would recommend Reef Prince with its covered dive tender - Regent - and the other little tenders for small group activities. The whole package was great. Excellent that there was a dive master on board who managed surface intervals appropriately and adjusted dives timings and locations to interests and skills. There were 4 divers amongst the crew. Snorkellers felt well satisfied as there were great bombies and gutters for them.
Thanks for a fantastic dive trip!!

The crew make sure you have a great time whether you are Scuba dive or snorkel or fish.
Accommodation great, rooms made up everyday and your washing done if needed.
Food excellent.
We will do this trip again it was worth every $$

Nick and his team, well they could not of done more to facilitate a great holiday, with cheerful humour and endless goodwill.
This is the second time I have travelled with them and will definitely go again - they provide knowledge and patience.
At the Rowley Shoals they offered more chances that anyone has the energy to take them up on to either snorkel or dive and when you are looking to relax the boat and food are fabulous! Brook's evening wrap ups just complete a perfect day.

I’ve been on cruises all over Europe, the Pacific (Noumea, New Zealand), Vancouver to Japan by this was the best. It was only 11 days but seemed longer as every day was full of activity. There were shore visits at least twice a day. Sometimes we explored little creeks and saw all sorts of birds and wildlife - wobegongs, herons, bats, turtles, sharks and crocodiles. Unfortunately the waterfalls this were not flowing as much as they do normally owing to the drought but they were still in magnificent setting and my camera was working overtime. Onboard was very comfortable with congenial fellow travellers. The food was exceptional! As good as any top restaurant in Sydney.

This cruise on the Reef Prince is busy with each days filled with things to do and see. Staff made us feel VIP and They all were very knowledgeable and helpful. The ship was a home away from home. The food was cheap cuts but presented nicely. The desserts were delicious. Plenty of food to eat. Disappointed that the food were cheap cuts considering the price we paid. It is an expensive trip although some of our counterparts paid $10,000 less than us. This disheartened us somewhat so watch out for deals. They ran out of soda water, the only drink my husband can drink, and they assured me prior to sailing they would have enough. They didn’t, they ran out two days before the end of the cruise. This made him dehydrated even though he sucked on ice cubes. Considering the price we paid We think they should have over catered in that area. They also ran out of travel calm when people got sea sick.
Value for money?? We were happy until we found out others got a much cheaper deal.

Thank you for your feedback and it is great to hear that Reef Prince became your home away from home and the staff made you feel like VIPs.
I am surprised that you felt the quality of food was not of the highest standards. We work with only the best suppliers in Broome and Darwin and we are confident that the food they source and supply is the best quality available.
With regards to price, we are confident that our cruises offer our guests value for money. As we have different standards of cabins onboard the price people pay will also vary. Also, as with other travel operators, we reserve the right to offer special offer prices from time to time, for example for returning customers. This is a standard practise in the travel industry. We believe our prices compare well with other similar products in the Kimberley cruising market.
