Small Islands Of The World Series

Now, with greater confidence, improved global health protocols and the re-opening of borders, Coral Expeditions is once again returning to international voyages. The release of these voyages features some favoured destinations such as New Zealand and the Spice Islands along with new adventures.
With their unique ecosystems and evocative histories, the remote small islands that are scattered through the world’s great oceans have always fascinated the team at Coral Expeditions. Coral Geographer will sail around the world, calling on the most fascinating of these islands. For the inaugural Indian Ocean leg of this series, she will sail from Fremantle to Sulawesi and Borneo, westwards for an overland safari excursion in Sri Lanka, three glorious days snorkeling and diving in the Maldives, an extended exploration of the ancient trade gateways of Mauritius and Zanzibar and the unique natural environs of Madagascar and the Seychelles.



Small Islands of The Indian Ocean

Set sail from home shores in Australia to the islands of Sulawesi and Borneo, then venture westwards across the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean through Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Seychelles before arriving at the legendary isles off Africa’s eastern seaboard: Madagascar, Réunion, Mauritius and Zanzibar.
For millennia, these islands have stood at the confluence of African, Asian and European civilisations. Taste traditional Creole cuisine in Réunion, stroll through ancient bazaars in Zanzibar and discover ancient pirate history at Île Sainte-Marie. With an expert expedition team and warm Australian hospitality, there is
no better way to experience these far-flung islands than by small ship. We invite you to join us on one or all of our five Indian Ocean expeditions sailing from December 2022 to March 2023.
