Indian Ocean

  • Explore island wonders

    For the first time, Coral Expeditions will venture into the vast expanses of the Indian Ocean, as we 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.

  • Small Islands of the Indian Ocean

    The Maiden Voyage will sail from Singapore across the vast arc of the Indian Ocean. Coral Geographer will undertake her second voyage from the Seychelles to Mauritius, featuring exploration of the northern coastline of Madagascar and visit the island of Reunion

Papua New Guinea

  • The land that time forgot

    New Guinea’s vast remoteness, hidden communities, and extensive coastline make it uniquely suited to small ship expedition cruising. With our in-house New Guinea experts and local guides, we have developed five unique expedition departures for 2019.

    One of these cruises has been specially curated to immerse you into the art and craft tradition of New Guinea, amongst the richest in the world.  Come and join us as we explore deep into New Guinea, aboard the brand-new Coral Adventurer.

  • Circumnavigation of New Guinea 2020

    This one-off voyage is packed with highlights. Sailing in comfort aboard the brand-new Coral Adventurer, you will experience many diverse cultures from the Spice Islands to the Sepik River, marvel at untouched landscapes, explore the wonders of Raja Ampat, and be immersed in one of the world’s last frontiers.

    Tasmania & The Great Barrier Reef

    Our Tasmanian voyages showcase the wild beauty and remarkable heritage of Australia’s island state.  We take advantage of the long summer days and explore Tasmania’s iconic coastal National Parks, and World Heritage Areas, with our 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 our home port of Cairns, Queensland, our bespoke expedition vessel Coral Expeditions II takes a maximum of 42 guests in relaxed comfort on year-round 3, 4 or 7-night expeditions.

    The Kimberley, Cape York & Arnhem Land

    The Kimberley Region is named for its imposing landmark - an ancient mountain range visible from the rugged sea coast. 

    Across the top of Northern Australia, you'll experience cultures unchanged for centuries, world-renowned Indigenous art centres, and some of the continent's most remote islands. 

  • Great Barrier Reef 2020/21

    Our home base for 34 years, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is a living wonder that is close to our hearts. Our pioneering overnight cruises explore the less-visited areas of the reef with minimal impact and a deep appreciation for this fragile and precious environment.

  • Great Barrier Reef 2019/20

    Venturing beyond the reach of day trips, our expeditions travel north to secluded Lizard Island, and exclusive outer reef mooring sites at the Ribbon Reefs and Escape Reef. Snorkelling, diving, and glass bottom boat tours allow you to experience the colours and vibrant life of the reef in all its magnificence. 

  • The Kimberley with Cape York & Arnhem Land 2020

     Witness magnificent coastal vistas created by towering rock ridges, silent secluded gorges, plunging waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and massive tidal movements. This is a land steeped in ancient Aboriginal culture and legends of our pioneering past.

  • Tasmania 2020

    Our expedition cruise over seven nights explores the incredible south-east region in the summer months. From the sea, enjoy easy access to National Parks and World Heritage Areas.
