An All-Australian Alliance
Our partnership with Australian Geographic established in 2018, is an alliance that brings together over 65 years of shared passion and experience for education, discovery, travel, and science. Together, we develop a series of annual expeditions, which are hosted ba curated program of scientific, cultural, historic, and nature projects, which will come to life onboard throughout our partnership. Guest will have the chance to participate in these projects during their voyage. Our partnership also supports the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year and the Australian Geographic Adventure Awards, inspirational pathways through which Australian photographers and adventurers are nurtured.
With almost 300 islands dotted across the narrow stretch of water between Cape York and Papua New Guinea, the people of the Torres Strait Islands have a distinct and vibrant culture. An expedition by small ship is the ideal way to access these remote regions and guests will be rewarded with the chances to meet these island communities and share their culture in a low impact and sustainable environment. With decades of experience and deep respect for the communities of the region, Coral Expeditions will facilitate an enriching journey with shore excursions accompanied and hosted by local elders who will share the customs and stories of this ancient country.
