Life on the boat is fun as our guests all share a common passion for travel, adventure and a desire to see this remote part of Australia.
Our crew are there to guide you and to ensure that your time onboard is comfortable and exciting. Most importantly, they want you to have the best experience possible and to see as much as they can show you of this extraordinary region. Discovery One has plenty of deck space for all our passengers, including a large observation deck with 360-degree views, a spa and sun loungers.
Our air-conditioned cabins are basic but comfortable, as one would expect on
a boat, and are designed to ensure that you sleep well with no interruptions.
Our accommodation is all the one standard; the only difference being that
some cabins have windows while some are internal. The internal cabins are
a little bigger, and some have an extra bunk for a family group.
Cabins are allocated on a first come, first served basis as there is no
difference in price.
Our cook is an expert at catering for a group and manages to produce wonderful, fresh and appetising food at every meal, even for those with particular dietary requirements. There is plenty to choose from and her desserts and morning teas are a speciality.
The Duty Hostesses are there to help at any time and will clean your cabin, change linen and provide clean towels upon request. They will also do any laundry for you free of charge.
The “Discovery One” experience has been enjoyed by many guests over the years, and many have either returned for a second cruise or encouraged their family and friends to join us.
