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.
Coral Geographers’ Maiden Voyage
Set sail from Singapore across the vast arc of the Indian Ocean, calling in at Sumatra, Sri Lanka, remote atolls of the Maldives and on to the pristine Seychelles. In these exotic and vibrant locations, immerse yourself in rich cultural history and enjoy nature and wildlife experiences. Special experiences include an overnight expedition safari of Yala National Park in Sri Lanka with the opportunity to see elephants and leopards, snorkelling and diving in the beautiful Maldives, and admiring a Coco De Mer palm forest, huge granite boulders that resemble modern art sculptures, and massive ancient tortoises in the Seychelles.

Coral Geographer will undertake its second voyage over 15 nights from the Seychelles to Mauritius featuring an extensive exploration of the northern coastline of Madagascar and a visit to the volcanic island of Réunion. Along the way, explore remote atolls in the Seychelles – home to the largest colony of wild giant tortoises, search for lemurs and chameleons in Madagascar, breathe in the perfume of ylang ylang, coffee, and vanilla plantations, and savour the culture of majestic Réunion.

Voyage 3: Expeditionary Crossing of the Indian Ocean
In true expedition style, our third voyage will see us complete an epic crossing of the Indian Ocean from Mauritius to home waters in Fremantle, Australia. This voyage is under development with key bodies and associations and is intended to be a 25 – 30-night voyage focussed on retracing historical routes and potential to visit small islands along either the southern or northern passages.
The voyage experience will be for the true explorers with a strong focus on scientific and research-based exploration of these very remote natural environs. Guest numbers will be strictly limited on this voyage.

We are proud to announce the build of our fifth expedition ship. As a sister ship to Coral Adventurer, the Coral Geographer will remain true to our nature of authentic expedition. When designing our next generation of ships, we stubbornly resisted the trend to go large and glitzy. Our ships remain small enough to go to untouched places, bringing small numbers of like-minded guests close to nature and cultures with personal attention and professional Australian service. Arriving in December 2020, the 120-passenger ship will feature the same state-of-the-art specifications and expedition features as the Coral Adventurer.
