Small Islands Of The Indian Ocean

Small Islands of the Indian Ocean

For the first time, Coral Expeditions will venture into the vast expanses of the Indian Ocean, as we welcome the Coral Geographer with a maiden voyage series designed to explore island wonders. Rich history, abundant and rare wildlife experiences, exotic flavours and great cultural diversity await.  With only 60 staterooms available on each voyage, this is a rare opportunity to experience remote islands and atolls – both those less travelled and those known for their beauty – in complete comfort and with the company of expert guides and naturalists.

Coral Geographer: A new ship, for new destinations.

As a sister ship to Coral Adventurer, the Coral Geographer will remain true to our nature of authentic expedition. When designing our next generation of ships, we stubbornly resisted the trend to go large and glitzy.  Our ships remain small enough to go to untouched places, bringing small numbers of like-minded guests close to nature and cultures with personal attention and professional Australian service.  Arriving in December 2020, the 120-passenger ship will feature the same state-of-the-art specifications and expedition features as the Coral Adventurer.
