At my age of 69, I have been hoping for 50 years to visit the Abrolhos Islands one day. As a boy I had been fascinated by the story of the wreck of the Dutch ship 'Batavia' there in 1629. What a fulfillment of a lifelong boyhood dream it was to take the five day Eco Abrolhos cruise there in March, 2018.
I saw all the places I had read about for decades and just 'lived' the sense of history I found there.
I was also fascinated by the geology of how the coral islands had been formed. Then there were the island walks where we saw bird life, fishermen's huts, sea lions on the beach and the forts that the soldiers built in 1629 to resist the mutineers.
Snorkeling on the coral reefs was just fantastic and, at one time I was joined by an inquisitive sea lion which just sidled up to me underwater and looked at me with big round eyes from no more than an arm's length away. An indelible memory.
Food and companionship was terrific. Sitting up on the top deck, glass of red wine in hand, watching the sun slowly set over the Indian Ocean. What an experience!
Totally professional and competent crew. Comfortable vessel.
Highly recommended. Thanks to captain and crew. David Mason-Jones.

My husband and I went on this cruise with my parents, 2 sisters and partners and 3 children under 12. To say the staff was awesome with 3 very difficult children is an understatement as I don't actually recommend this trip for young children. The snorkeling and tours of the islands was amazing as was the food which consisted of massive amounts of fresh crayfish, fish, salad, fruit and fare for the non fish eaters. My husband went fishing with Jay a few times and was not disappointed while I was snorkeling or walking on the islands. We didn't get to snorkle on the Batavia wreck because it was too rough but we are planning on doing it again so hopefully next time. I can't rave enough about how good this tour is so just book in and find out for yourself.

We have just stepped off this amazing 5 day cruise aboard the Eco Abrolhos and I cannot recommend this tour company high enough. The Crews wealth of knowledge on the islands past and current history, fishing, bird and marine life, photography, food and comfort aboard are second to none. We are certainly hoping to tour with you again. A big shout out to Captain Bronson, Paul, Ray, Big Al, Clive, Tyson, Mike, Meg and Sharree for making our trip so memorable and happy.
