Exhibitor Intro: Captain Cook Cruises

captain cook Cruises

We have spoken a fair bit so far on a lot of the larger cruise lines, and river cruises and small ship cruises, but today I thought I would introduce to you a local company who specialises in a little different. Today I would like to let you know about one of our favourite local cruise companies who will be joining us at My Cruise Expo on the 17th March at Worrigee Ex-Servicemans from 5pm.  Today I would like to talk about Captain Cook Cruises & Sealink.

Captain-Cook-Cruises

Captain Cook Cruises has a select but incredible array of cruising options to choose from – and those options don’t necessarily mean having to spend days away from home either.

The most accessible cruises Captain Cook Cruises have to offer for those living on the South Coast are day Cruises from Sydney Harbour, with regular sightseeing cruises, breakfast and high tea cruises, dinner cruises and sunset cruises operating almost daily. They also run regular themed night cruises for those wanting to get out and celebrate, as well as cruises operating to take advantage of some of Sydney premier events like the upcoming “Vivid Sydney”in May and June.

They also offer regular Ferry and Charter services around Sydney and for those that do love the long pacific island cruises, Captain Cook Cruises now have a ferry service on port days that will help get you to White Bay Cruise terminal and back from Circular Quay .. so just as handy and as a taxi from Central but much more scenic and a perfect way to start your cruise holiday.

Captain Cook Cruises also run the fantastic Murray Princess, a traditional paddlewheel steamer that operates in South Australia from Mannum that cruises the Murray River, travellinga s far as 360km as it takes you through areas filled with scenic highlights such as the towering sandstone cliffs at Big Bend, or historical and cultural sights such as the Ngaut Ngau Aboriginal Reserve. The Murray Princes is the perfect way to explore the scenery, wildlife, heritage and culture of Australia in a relaxing and comfortable environment.

With its home base so close to Adelaide it is also a great opportunity to hop aboard a Sealink Ferry and visit Kangaroo Island for a day or an extended tour. Sealink also run ferry and Tour Services in Queensland at Magnetic and Palm Islands and in the Northern Territory at Mandorah and Tiwi Islands, expanding the range of regional cruising in Australia that is on offer via Captain Cook Cruises and Sealink.

Fiji is a popular destination for Austrailan Tourists, and many go there and spend a week or so at the coral coast, others will drop by Fiji on a Pacific Island Cruise, but few really get to see the smaller islands, local communities and hard to get to places like Captain Cook Cruises do.

Captain Cook Cruises run several 4, 4 and 7 day night programmes to the Yasawa Islands, and well as a 7 day Cruise programme to the more remote northern Islands and an incredible 11 day Lau and Kadavu programme that will take you to the smaller islands and communities of Fijis far east before bring you back to Nadi.

Captain Cook Cruises in Fiji offer the perfect chance to combine a tropical getaway filled with snorkelling and reef activities with a cultural and sightseeing programme that will have you seeing more of Fiji then you ever imagined. So if a day cruise in Sydney, a Murray River Experience, or a new way to see Fiji sounds interesting then why not come and see the Expert from Captain Cook Cruises at  at My Cruise Expo, on the 17th March 2017 at Worrigee Ex-Serviceman’s Sports Club from 5pm till 8pm!
