Large enough to provide all the modern amenities and comforts of larger cruise ships, yet small enough to enable us to access reef and island sites inaccessible to other vessels. Australian registered and staffed, whichever Coral Expeditions small ship you choose to cruise aboard, you are assured of a personalised and unique adventure. Our fleet of three expedition style cruise ships has been specially designed and purpose-built to our exacting standards.
Launched in 2005 and purpose-built for cruising in the tropical regions of the southern oceans, Coral Discoverer accommodates just 72 guests in 36 spacious staterooms and has a cruising speed of 14 knots. Coral Discoverer’s shallow draught allows it to access even the most isolated and remote locations regions we cruise, beyond the reach of other ships.
Coral Discoverer is highly suited to cruising between Cairns and Darwin via Cape York and Arnhem Land and between Darwin and Broome where she plies the rugged Kimberley coastline (April to October) each year. During the Australian summer, she can be found cruising PNG, the Spice Islands & Raja Ampat and from November 2016 into South East Asia.
Our comfortably appointed 35 metre classic catamaran Coral Expeditions I accommodates up to 50 guests in 25 rooms. Guests cruising aboard Coral Expeditions I will enjoy the modern comforts of small ship cruising in the relaxed atmosphere unique to Coral Expeditions.
Coral Expeditions I promises a unique cruising experience in the Australian coastal waters of Tasmania (November – February), Cape York & Arnhem Land and Kimberley regions (March to October).
Coral Expeditions II is just 35 metres in length and accommodates 44 guests in 22 rooms. Fully refurbished in early 2015 and featuring the facilities and comforts of much bigger ships, aboard Coral Expeditions II you will discover the best of Tropical North Queensland in unrivalled style.
Coral Expeditions II operates year-round on the Great Barrier Reef as she is the ideal ship for manoeuvring amongst the islands and reefs of this World Heritage-listed wonderland.
