Coral Expeditions 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.
