Our ships are equipped with a fleet of excursion tender vessels to simplify travelling ashore and enjoying water-based activities. Designed with flexibility and guest comfort in mind, our inflatable Zodiacs, glass bottom boats and unique excursion tender ‘Xplorer’ ensure that all guests can travel to shore or explore hidden bays and inlets safely and comfortably.
OUR PURPOSE BUILT XPLORER TENDERS
During your expedition cruise you will have the daily opportunity to participate in at least two included shore excursions or activities, along with onboard briefings and presentations. For many of our shore excursions, we use our trademark Xplorer tender. Xplorer is very easy to board directly from the deck, and provides comfortable padded seating. On-board, a microphone and speakers assist our guides in sharing their expert commentary, a canopy over head protects us from the sun, and there is a toilet for remote convenience.
Aboard Coral Adventurer and Coral Geographer, the twin Xplorers can be boarded directly from the ship’s Coral Deck, before the hydraulic platform gently lowers into the water, making it easily accessible for all guests. The twin Xplorers are equipped with 2x twin 225 Horse Power Engines and can reach up to 20 knots in speed.
Aboard Coral Discoverer, guests board Xplorer directly from the ship’s main deck, before the hydraulic platform gently lowers into the water, making it easily accessible for all 72 guests. Xplorer is equipped with 2x twin 225 Horse Power Engines and can reach up to 20 knots in speed.
