Pioneers of Australian expedition cruising, Coral Expeditions, is giving guests the chance to relax and rejuvenate on the Great Barrier Reef with a saving of 20% on 3, 4 and 7 night immersive cruises booked from now until June 30.
Operating in the region for over 33 years, Coral Expeditions knows the Great Barrier Reef better than most. Their extended small-ship cruise itineraries allow visitors to the reef the chance to get up close and personal with one of the world’s most rare and beautiful seascapes.
Guests can choose between 3 night southern or 4 night northern reef itineraries, or can combine both cruises for the ultimate 7 night Great Barrier Reef exploration.
Expedition highlights include Thetford Reef, Hinchinbrook Channel, Ribbon Reefs, Dunk Island, Lizard Island and Cooktown.
Guests enjoy fresh and locally sourced food and wine, a team of expert guides, off shore excursions to secluded islands on a glass bottom boat, snorkelling and SCUBA tours, informative presentations and educational documentaries.
Carrying a total of 44 guests, Coral Expeditions II has an intimate and casual atmosphere. 22 on board rooms across 2 levels of accommodation are comfortable and well-appointed with single or double beds, ensuites, desks, big picture windows and some with couches.
On board facilities include two fully stocked cocktail bars, a spacious dining room, large sun deck, lounge, resource library and open bridge.
The ship is equipped with a glass bottom boat perfect for viewing the coral and sea life down below. Boarding the glass bottom boat is safe and easy as guests simply step aboard from the main deck before the boat is lowered into the water by hydraulic lift, ensuring safety and security for each guest.
Off-shore excursions and activities are highly personalised and tailored for the needs of guests on each individual cruise. Guests have the option to take walks, hikes and aquatic activities like kayaking, snorkelling and SCUBA diving, or take the glass bottom boat with Coral Expeditions’ expert Marine Biologist to learn more about the different coral and marine species that call the reef home.
