Book with Confidence – Sail close to home with our flexible booking policies, brought to you by Coral Expeditions

  • All Australian itineraries, crew and guests
  • 100 passengers or less
  • Proven medical protocols in place
  • Sailing safely since October 2020

Coral Expeditions are now sailing again in Australia with a successful return with a series of coastal voyages exploring Tasmania, South Australia, and Australia’s West Coast.  We have tested and proven our SailSAFE health protocols, and have full approvals from respective federal, state and territory government authorities due to our Australian flag and small ship classification.

Standard booking conditions, including cancellation fees, apply to bookings not disrupted by COVID 19.

Australian Hospitality at Sea

On board, you will discover a personalised style of cruising. With a maximum of 100 guests, there is no need for queues, waiting, or assigned seating. Instead, an intimate, convivial atmosphere shared with other likeminded travellers makes you feel at home.

The Australian and New Zealand crew share their passion for our destinations and the explorer’s life. Join an engine room tours, watch the chefs at work in the open galley, and chat with the Captain or officers on the bridge – they will be delighted to have your company.

The chefs, inspired by destination flavours, prepare cuisine from fresh regional produce. The wine cellars hold a curated selection of Australian wines, beers and spirits. Our guests love to mingle over drinks as the sun sets, enjoy daily educational presentations by the lecturers, participate in stargazing sessions after dark, or simply find a quiet corner on deck and enjoy the solitude.

The Expedition Experience

Explore remote locations that are hard to reach or not often touched by tourists, with shore excursions that promote environmental and cultural appreciation.

The small group sizes ensure that your experience is personal, with minimal impact on the communities and environments we visit.
Enjoy excursions or activities each day, guided by expert Expedition Leaders and lecturers who provide commentary on culture, history, and the region’s unique geology, plants and wildlife to help you connect with these special places.

The ships are built for environmentally responsible smallship cruising, with refined navigation and nimble Xplorer tenders to bring you close to remote coastlines.

SailSAFE Plan

Information from Coral Expeditions:

It is our priority to keep our guests and crew safe while travelling with us, and our SailSAFE Plan will ensure we operate responsibly in the new environment that COVID-19 has created.

Remote, nature-based expeditions with Australian and New Zealand crew, and small groups less than 100 guests provides a lower-risk environment. The addition of our approved SailSAFE COVID response plan, as well as our thorough pre-cruise testing model, create additional confidence when sailing with us.

Coral Expeditions have partnered with Respond Global, a specialist medical advisory agency, to assist us in developing these protocols that are among the most thorough in the world. With a focus on prevention, to target a 100% COVID free environment when we set sail, we have a three-tiered medical screening system in place before boarding. This prevention protocol is supported by on board mitigation actions and a thorough and compassionate response plan.
