Bringing You Closer

The specially designed expedition ships all feature a shallow draft and high maneuverability, meaning you are able to get closer to the shore and into sheltered bays and areas which bigger ships just can’t manage. Stunning on board communal areas, also mean that even when you’re not ashore, you are immersed in the destination around you, and make for stunning photo opportunities. Head to the Explorer Bar up on the Sundeck for panoramic views.

Food on board is also full of Australian flavours, with high-quality local ingredients, served with boutique Australian beers and wines.

Coral Adventurer

The brand new Coral Adventurer was launched in April 2019 and immediately became Coral Expeditions’ flagship and largest vessel. She was custom-built with travellers and the destination in mind to create a seamless blend of modern technology and Australian charm.

Coral Discoverer

Coral Discover arrived in 2005 to take Australian cruising into a new generation. Since then, she has been lovingly refurbished in 2016 in order to enhance the sun deck and its Explorer Bar, and also add several Bridge Deck Balcony Staterooms.

Coral Expeditions II

Perfectly created to explore the Great Barrier Reef responsibly and safely, Coral Expeditions II is a small ship that carries just 42 guests on three, four and seven-night itineraries.

Coral Geographer

The brand new Coral Geographer is set to launch in 2021 and will offer the same intimate guest experience, and personalised service as her sister ships.
