    Coral Geographer Overview

    Coral Geographer

    As sister ship to Coral Adventurer (launched April 2019), Coral Geographer will remain true to our pursuit of authentic expeditions. When designing our next generation of ships, we stubbornly resisted the trend to go large and glitzy. We remain small enough to go to untouched places, focusing on bringing small numbers of like-minded guests closer to nature and cultures with personal attention and professional Australian service. Arriving in 2021, the 99-passenger ship will feature the same state-of-the-art specifications and expedition features as Coral Adventurer. However, due to popular demand, she will have an increased number of 6 bridge deck suites with horizon bathtubs.
