For 33 years, Coral Expeditions has focused on small ship expedition cruises to faraway lands. The 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.

At just 35 metres in length, Coral Expeditions II is the ideal small ship for discovering the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. Small enough to allow snorkeling directly from the ship, yet equipped with the facilities of a much larger vessel, your cruise will be truly memorable.

Refurbished during early 2015, Coral Expeditions II is fully equipped for the ultimate Great Barrier Reef cruising experience. The 22 onboard rooms feature traditional maritime stylings with wood panelled walls. You can choose between double and twin bedded rooms, each fully equipped with a private ensuite, air conditioning and ample storage space. All rooms feature large picture windows, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery.

The ship’s spacious lounge is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink from the cocktail bar in air-conditioned comfort, and features a comprehensive reference library and plasma screens. The large Sun Deck is another popular place to relax and take in the sights, with comfortable deck chairs and teak furnishings. You will also enjoy the opportunity to dine al fresco under the magnificent stars over the Great Barrier Reef.

Meals are served in the atmospheric Dining Room, and with space for all guests to dine during one sitting and no assigned seating, meal times are a great opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers.

Coral Expeditions II operates an open bridge policy, allowing you to spend time with the Captain and his maritime crew during your cruise. Follow the ships progression on the ship’s charts and chat with the Captain, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery. Coral Expeditions II is fitted with modern safety and navigation equipment.
