Coral Expeditions is a 34 year old Australian expedition cruise company. They operate and manage a fleet of four small ships taking guests to some of the most beautiful, yet undiscovered, regions of Asia-Pacific. Over 5,000 travellers from all over the world come to them every year for their relaxed small ship atmosphere and itineraries which larger ships cannot replicate. Their operations are bespoke with high attention to guests which result in a more personal product.
At a time when the cruise industry is moving to larger and larger ships, they have limited the size of their ships to maximise the expedition experience. Their cuisine is prepared small batch on board and, while the style is down to earth, it reflects high quality Australian produce and wine. They operate to Australian standards of safety with Australian senior crew wherever they go. They were the first to offer interpretive programmes on their cruises and to employ Expedition Leaders, Guest Lecturers, Marine Biologists and SCUBA Instructors – a tradition that continues today.
