For 33 years, Coral Expeditions has focused on small ship expedition cruises to faraway lands. Their fleet of three Australian-flagged and crewed ships were purpose-built for exploring and are designed to show off the places they visit. They are comfortable, safe and manoeuvrable enough to get you close to nature, cultures and history. There is an abundance of open space with at least one walk-around promenade deck on each ship.

Launched in 2005, the 1800 tonne Coral Discoverer set a new benchmark standard for luxury small ship cruising in Australia and is the grand vision of Coral Expeditions, pioneers in expedition and adventure cruises around Australia, Papua New Guinea and South East Asia.

Her shallow draught and manoeuvrability allow her to go where larger vessels cannot. Her tender vessel, Xplorer, can seat all 72 passengers for excursions to beaches and rivers. Coral Discoverer is equipped with the latest technology active stabilisers to ensure comfortable cruising in open waters and is fitted with modern safety and navigation equipment and wireless internet facilities. Coral Discoverer was built to the exacting international SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) standards and specifications in Cairns, Australia, with one aim in mind; to create the ultimate small ship cruising experience.

Australian flagged, and staffed entirely by an Australian and New Zealand crew, your experience aboard Coral Discoverer will be unique. Additionally, Coral Discoverer will undergo a major refit in late 2016.
