Coral Geographer Explores The Indian Ocean

The newest addition to our fleet, Coral Geographer, will sail all the way to the edge of Africa. With a maximum of 120 guests, Coral Geographer is built for tropical expedition cruising with open deck spaces, outdoor dining and a fleet of capable tender vessels to get you ashore – whether it is the rarely visited atolls of the Maldives or beachcombing at ‘the world’s most beautiful beach’ at La Digue.

Encounter exotic islands

The Indian Ocean and her islands have always held mystique and intrigue among sailors. Male is the capital of the Maldives and its second largest island, covered by shrubs and palms. Home to the ruins of a fort which remain a mystery, Hithadho originates from Buddhist settlement dating back to the 5th century. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the island of Mozambique is home to 16th century architectural features with a culmination of Portuguese, Indian and Arab influences. Originally formed by the effects of volcanic activity, the island of Nosy Be is covered in lush vegetation and features many craters. Ile Alphonse is part of the outer islands of the Seychelles, at the heart of the Indian Ocean, 400 kilometres south-west of Mahe and seven degrees south of the Equator.
