Coral Expeditions | Great Barrier Reef

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

At Coral Expeditions, they have one purpose – to take small groups of like-minded explorers to remote places, with expert guidance and warm Australian hospitality. From humble beginnings on the Great Barrier Reef, they have taken their fleet of small ships to explore the remote coastlines of the Kimberley, Tasmania, Papua New Guinea and beyond.

For four decades, they have proudly sailed under the Australian flag, upholding the highest standards of safety. With Australian and New Zealand crew, their vessels are renowned for their relaxed and intimate atmosphere that makes you feel at home.

With extended time ashore and led by an expert Expedition Team who are passionate about their destination, their guests have the opportunity to truly connect with the people and places they visit and experience authentic encounters with nature. Their small ships provide the flexibility to visit destinations inaccessible to larger vessels, with minimal impact on the environment.
Immersive experiences, respect for cultures, and connection with communities are the foundation of their expeditions. They bring you closer to nature, culture, and history through the spirit of discovery and shared knowledge.
