Duke of York and Huraa Island

From 26/03/2018 to 02/04/2018

The week aboard the Duke of York was fabulous and there is not a single thing we can say that we would want to see changed. The boat is superb, the food is consistently delicious, the staff are all extremely helpful, friendly and a delight to be around…and the diving is magnificent! Herbert is a fantastic expedition leader. We dive with Julien every day and his skill and presence in the water, as well as his friendly attitude through the whole week, was amazing. We also loved making new friends with Ilya and Pinta, and reconnecting with our old friend Ali. In addition, our two days oink land in Haraa at the Pearl Sands were also great and we are very appreciative of the effort that Lee put in to make us welcome and feel at home. And it was a great pleasure to dive with Ali’s son Sanoon as well! Thank you again.

We had the most amazing time on the Duke of York, from the moment we stepped on board it just got better and better.  The vessel is georgeous, the accommodation perfect, the Staff -  from the Deck Hands, the Bar man, the Chef - right up to the Management made us feel real special.  They are informative, helpful, friendly and could’nt please enough. They always had something planned – island visiting, the barberque on the beach, the fishing trip etc.   There was no time for getting bored.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Snorkeling it was fun and just wonderful.  What we saw was absolutely stunning. I am sure the Divers felt the same, because everytime they came back from a Dive, they raved about it.  The men should work on their fishing skills as they did not catch as much fish as they hoped, but still enjoyed every moment.  We were also lucky to have real nice, friendly Italian people on board. Alberto is a Star – very attentive and very funny, and may I add very patient.

We were never short of food, it was tasty and quite healthy.  Plenty of Fish. Deliciously prepared. The breakfast, although  freshly prepared needs a bit of iniative.  The coffee great.The arrangements for Pick – up and transfers were done professionally and the recommendation for Thulagiri island was a good idea, we thorouhly enjoyed it.We can with all honesty say that this was a holiday thoroughly enjoyed by all and will gladly recommend this trip.  We really got more than what we bargained for

Thank you staff and Management for making our holiday special.

Kind regards R, E. and the S.
