Our SailSAFE Plan

As we operate in the changing environment that the presence of COVID-19 has created, it is our priority to keep our guests and crew safe while travelling with us. We want our guests and crew to have the greatest confidence that their safety and wellbeing have been thoroughly considered. We have put in place a range of protocols to manage our expeditions in a world in which COVID-19 exists. We have partnered with Respond Global, an experienced medical advisory agency, to assist us in developing a prevention and response system that is among the most thorough in the world.

All passengers must follow specific declaration and testing requirements pre-cruise. Please ensure you read our SailSAFE documentation and that you understand these protocols and requirements.  Below you will find links to read the complete SailSAFE Plan, as well as download your SailSAFE Guest Health Questionnaire. Please also review our guides on receiving your PCR Test and completing your G2G Pass application.

About our SailSAFE Plan

As we operate in the changing environment that the presence of COVID-19 has created, it is our priority to keep our guests and crew safe while travelling with us. We want our guests and crew to have the greatest confidence that their safety and wellbeing have been thoroughly considered.

We have put in place a range of measures and associated protocols to manage our expeditions in a world in which COVID-19 exists. We have partnered with Respond Global, an experienced medical advisory agency, to assist us in developing a prevention and response system that is among the most thorough in the world.

Our plan focuses on prevention, to target a 100% COVID free environment onboard. We implement a three-tiered medical screening protocol and ensure everyone on board has passed through this screening process. This prevention protocol is supported by strict onboard mitigation actions and an approved response plan.

This plan will be supported by our Standard Operation Procedures, developed for each vessel with cruise profile-specific requirements. These procedures have enabled us to maintain a high standard of safety and guest comfort for over 35 years – a record we are proud of.

We trust this SailSAFE Plan offers you peace of mind as you plan your explorations of Australia’s coastline, and then the world, with Coral Expeditions.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.
