Coral Expeditions

Coral Expeditions welcomes guests from all over the world on their small ship expeditions exploring the most beautiful, yet remote regions of Australia and Asia

GeoTravelPartnerAn Australian company with 33 years experience, Coral has a passion for expedition cruising – offering a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, which larger ships cannot replicate. With three ships in the fleet purpose-built for discovery and exploration, and a maximum guest capacity of 72, the expeditions are truly personal. The levels of service delivered by the Australian or New Zealand residency crew keep guests coming back each year.

The meal settings can be as unique as the destinations – a beach BBQ on a picturesque island, sunset drinks and canapés at an impromptu stop. Although travelling to remote destinations, you’ll savour small batch cuisine created by talented chefs on board, using fresh, locally sourced produce.

Even the most intrepid adventurer can get ashore, as the ship is equipped with a inflatable zodiacs and a unique ‘Xplorer’ tender (pictured above) that can be accessed from the ship’s main deck, lowering into the water without you even having to get your feet wet!

You’ll feel safe in the hands of an experienced Expedition team, all Australian crew and the knowledge the ships operate to Australian safety standards.
