"My husband & I have just returned from the 10 Day Adventure Quest on the Kimberley Quest and would rate this trip as one of the best experiences we have ever had. From the moment we booked, we had fabulous follow up & upon boarding, we were treated like royalty with our every request catered to with courtesy & efficiency. The level of service & attention to detail was exceptional. The quality, preparation & presentation of food was five star & the daily adventures took us to the most pristine & remote places in the Kimberley. Our crew had great local knowledge & enthusiasm for the area & were very helpful to those less agile. A magnificently indulgent adventure that we can highly recommend. "

Jen & Chris DiNuzzo - August 2015

"We have been on 4 Kimberley Coast cruises over the past 9 years - 3 times on Kimberley Quest II.

"This vessel was specifically designed and built for the for the job she does so perfectly. She is maintained and operated to the highest standards.

"The skipper and crew are expertly familiar with the itinerary of amazing locations visited. Their teamwork has to be experienced to be believed.

"Service is first name/personal and efficient from the moment of booking until disembarkation.

"The Kimberley Coast is a unique part of our planet. Our advice to anyone planning a Kimberley Coast cruise is to book on KIMBERLEY QUEST II."

Clem & Diana Allen - July 2015

"The crew are outstanding, they work over and beyond our expectations, we have been blown away by the service provided and are extremely humbled to know the age and experience of the staff. Well done, you have made our holiday very enjoyable. Thank you!"

Benton & Sharon Wallace - July 2015

"The 'wow' factor was served up daily in every aspect of the experience, not only was the crew outstanding, food worthy of a chefs hat but the agenda each day of what we did and where we went was beyond amazing... there is really not enough superlatives to describe how truly amazing a Kimberly Quest II Cruise is. Thank you hardly touches the sides for our appreciation for all that made this an experience that we can."

John Butschies & Sue Creak - June 2015

"Having planned this over several years and as a celebration for Karen and myself expectations were high. But you've blown them out of the water and delivered an experience way above what we could have imagined! Thank you!"

Greg Whimp & Karen Stevenson - June 2015

"As an infrequent 'cruiser' I have been so impressed by every aspect of this Kimberley Quest II Cruise. I cannot praise the crew highly enough. Nothing was ever too hard and their care and attention to every detail for our enjoyment and comfort was outstanding. Thank you."

David & Beryle Bevan - June 2015

"Everything about the experience with Kimberley Quest was first class from the initial contact and arrangements with Alice through final details with Georgia and Claire to the fantastic crew of Dan, Tim, Brad, Dave, Nathan, Riss and Candice who looked after us magnificently on our 8 Day Southern Quest."

"The way the crew tailor the itinerary each day to the interests of the passengers, tides and conditions ensures the best experience possible rather than working to a set formula."

"Would we recommend Kimberley Quest to others? Absolutely!"

"If we had the opportunity would we go again? In a heartbeat!"

Ross Thompson & Kathryn Baguley - September 2014

"The vessel, meals, activities and accommodation were excellent, comfortable and functional and we did appreciate that we were able to spend time in the wheelhouse just being a part of the goings on."

"The staff from Dan, Tim, Dave, Brad, Riss, Candice and Nathan were all extremely professional and friendly in their duties and contributed to a major extent to the enjoyability and smooth running of the trip."

"It is probably unfair to single out any of their contributions but the willingness and quiet manner that Tim was able to impart his knowledge in answering our innumerable questions was outstanding. We can't express how much we felt he added to the wonderful experience we had."

"It was wonderful way to experience the Kimberley."

Allan & Fay - September 2014

"It was a trip of a lifetime, the boat beautifully appointed, maintained and so fit for purpose. The crew were exceptional in attending to our needs and keeping us busy, fed and entertained throughout."

"The presence of Tim Willing on board added real value and enhanced our understanding of the spectactular natural elements/scenery we encountered."

"All in all a most professionally run voyage which comfortably exceeded our high expectations."

Meg & Russell Henderson - August 2014

"We had the most memorable trip with Captain Dan, Mate Brad, Engineer Dave, Chef Nathan, Hostess' Candice and Riss and Naturlalist Tim. WHAT a crew, they were absolutely brilliant in their expert individual ways."

"Thankyou to everybody involved from start to finish, the departure on helicopter , then plane to Broome, went so smoothly too and a fascinating way to end the trip as there we were looking down on that magical country we had just sailed."

"All best wishes from us both,"

Anna & James Affleck - July 2014

"We thoroughly enjoyed our recent 8 day Southern cruise on Kimberly Quest. There were so many "special moments" on the cruise that we can not identify any particular one. The cruise was well planned to showcase the highlights of this region. The coordination of activities by the crew and their attention to the needs and comfort of passengers was first class."

"We felt that one of the defining features of the trip was the relaxed informality of the skipper and crew, while they maintained an extremely high degree of efficiency in all activities. The meals and hospitality service was superb. We wish to thank the company and all those concerned."

Bill & Helen Crisp - June 2014

"We really enjoyed every aspect of our trip, including our interaction with Georgia, Alice and Claire in the office – and with each of the crew on board. Ben, Simon, Louie, Dave, Nathan, Blake, Riss and Caz who were all marvellous. The cruise itself was absolutely fabulous, helped a bit, I'm sure, by the fact that we were all mates but a great itinerary and everything we had hoped for plus some! I am particularly grateful that our excess wines and spirits were returned to the 'Roey' as that was a great help."
