When it comes to expedition cruises, Coral Expeditions focuses on purposeful design and providing an intimate and immersive experience for guests wishing to explore the Kimberley region in Western Australia as well as a multitude of other destinations in the southwest of the Pacific. Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, Coral Expeditions has solidified its position as both a pioneer and frontrunner in the industry, offering a unique blend of purpose-built ships, diverse destinations, and a passion for discovery.

The Fleet

Coral Expeditions has three must-see vessels in their fleet: Coral Geographer, Coral Adventurer, and Coral Discoverer, all of which redefine the concept of exploration at sea for the modern traveler. These vessels are designed with open spaces to celebrate the natural beauty surrounding them, providing an unparalleled vantage point for admiring the incredible locations they visit. The shallow draught of these vessels paired with outward-facing staterooms constantly invite guests to connect with breathtaking landscapes of remote and pristine areas that larger vessels cannot reach.

Explore Further

Another distinctive feature of Coral Expeditions’ design is their Xplorer Tenders. These tenders provide an incredibly immersive way to explore the area. They feature an open-sided design with the top covered, allowing passengers to get up close to the magnificent cliffs and thundering waterfalls of the Kimberley region while keeping the harsh sun at bay. The coral expeditions fleet allows the passengers to get intimate looks into much more of the Australasia region with destinations such as Papua New Guinea, the Great Barrier Reef, Japan, New Zealand and more!

Staying CONNECTed

Coral Expeditions uses Helm CONNECT Maintenance, Compliance, and Inventory modules. Helm CONNECT’s tailored system enables the efficient management of its scheduled maintenance as well as its work and repair orders. Additionally, Coral Expeditions uses the Forms, Requisitions, and Tasks features for the tracking of crew and vessel certifications, ensuring timely renewal, and to streamline any coordination with shore-based operations during day-to-day activities. These products work in harmony, ensuring the optimization of these vessels and helping Coral Expeditions offer an incredible cruise experience time and time again.
