See New Zealand from a new perspective

Awe-inspiring landscapes, indigenous Maori culture, and an abundance of unique wildlife all combine to make New Zealand a remarkable expedition destination.
We have designed two different itineraries that showcase remote attractions best accessed by small ship. With over 7000 km of coastline to be explored, you will sail into sheltered sounds and glacial fjords, visit an active volcanic island, and appreciate native flora and fauna. Get up close to wildlife with our expedition team, enjoy guided bush walks, or indulge in a kayaking adventure. Take in new vistas each day from the Coral Discoverer’s sundeck Explorer bar.

South Island Expedition: Milford Sound to Wellington, 10 Nights

With its stunning coastal landscapes, small seaside townships and an abundance of marine life, New Zealand is uniquely suited to be explored on a small ship expedition.
Join us on Coral Discoverer as we cruise to the less accessible and remote locations the South Island has to offer. Visit the magnificent Marlborough Sound, the glassy Fiordland, and Stewart Island the little known third island. Get up close to wildlife with our Expedition Team, take guided bush walks, and explore by kayak. Wake up to new vistas each day and relax in the comfort of life on board.
