Our fleet

our small ship expedition fleet

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 expedition style cruise ships has been specially designed and purpose-built to our exacting standards.



Launching in 2019 and purpose-built to take you closer to unspoilt vistas in comfort, style and safety, Coral Adventurer accommodates 120 guests in 60 spacious staterooms and has a cruising speed of 13.5 knots.  A culmination of two years of design and three decades of passion for expedition cruising, Coral Adventurer has over 1000 sq m of open deck space including a wrap-around promenade deck with panoramic views.  Multiple indoor and outdoor bars – including our Explorer bar on the sundeck, a well-equipped gym, and a passenger elevator creates an environment designed for guest comfort.

Coral Adventurer has captured the unique requirements of our guests, our crew, and our incredible destinations. Combining it with the highest quality equipment and technology, this will make her ideal for sailing the Indonesian archipelago, Papua New Guinea, and the Kimberley coast.
