Adventure cruises share the great beauty, diverse cultures, dramatic landscapes and the remote coastlines of Australia, and explore pristine islands, reefs and atolls. Coral Expeditions ships are purpose-built for comfort, safety and luxury, set in a casual atmosphere. They employ expedition leaders, guest lecturers and, on longer trips, marine biologists and scuba instructors. Cuisine is down-to-earth good food and good wine. Coffee & tea is complimentary all day, there are no in-cabin TVs, and an open bridge policy. Shore excursions are included in the fare. Testimonials of past national and international guests speak in superlatives of their onboard and excursion experiences. Coral Expeditions is owned, flagged and crewed by Australians.
