    For the first time, Coral Expeditions will venture into the vast expanses of the Indian Ocean, as they welcome the Coral Geographer with a maiden voyage series designed to explore island wonders. Rich history, abundant and rare wildlife experiences, exotic flavours and great cultural diversity await. 

    With only 60 staterooms available on each voyage, this is a rare opportunity to experience remote islands and atolls – both those less travelled and those known for their beauty – in complete comfort and with the company of expert guides and naturalists.

    Tasmania & The Great Barrier Reef

    Coral Expeditions' Tasmanian voyages showcase the wild beauty and remarkable heritage of Australia’s island state.  They take advantage of the long summer days and explore Tasmania’s iconic coastal National Parks, and World Heritage Areas, with expert guides and naturalists leading the way. 

    Coral Expeditions knows the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef better than most, having pioneered overnight cruises on the outer reef more than 30 years ago. Sailing from their home port of Cairns, Queensland, their bespoke expedition vessel Coral Expeditions II takes a maximum of 42 guests in relaxed comfort on year-round 3, 4 or 7-night expeditions.
