Our fleet

our small ship expedition fleet

Our small ships and unique itineraries take you to some of the most beautiful and remote regions of Australia and the Asia Pacific.
On board you will discover a personalised style of cruising. With our ships carrying only 44 to 120 guests, you can say goodbye to queues, long waits, and assigned seating. Instead, enjoy a relaxed, convivial atmosphere shared with like-minded explorers.
Without crowds to worry about, our chefs can prepare small-batch meals made with Australian ingredients. Where possible, they procure locally.
The shallow draft and high maneuverability of our purpose-designed expedition ships let us get you closer on coastal adventures, to explore the shelted bays and hidden inlets inaccessible to larger ships.
