SHIP Information

Our flagship vessel; designed for the open seas.

Launched in 2005, Coral Discoverer set a new benchmark standard for small ship cruising in Australia. Refurbished in November 2016, she continues to raise the bar to new levels of sophistication in expedition cruising in the Southern Hemisphere.

The 1800-tonne Coral Discoverer is the grand vision of Coral Expeditions, pioneers in expedition and adventure cruises around Australia, Papua New Guinea and South East Asia. Her shallow draught and manoeuvrability allow her to go where larger vessels cannot. Her tender vessel, Xplorer, can seat all 72 passengers for excursions to beaches and rivers. Coral Discoverer is equipped with latest technology active stabilisers to ensure comfortable cruising in open waters and is fitted with modern safety and navigation equipment and wireless internet facilities.

Coral Discoverer was built to the exacting international SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) standards and specifications in Cairns, Australia, with one aim in mind; to create the ultimate small ship cruising experience. Australian flagged, and staffed entirely by an Australian and New Zealand crew, your experience aboard Coral Discoverer will be unique.

Highlights
Dining

Our chefs prepare high-quality small batch cuisine using local ingredients. We're proud the quality of Australian and local produce we use. Our dining environments are relaxed without all the glitz of larger cruise ships. And there is no tipping required. 

You can come at ease and dine with whomever you please. It's a wonderful way to share stories and adventures, without having an assigned seat or formal night. After all you're on holidays.

Our crew will be happy to serve you a meal in-room if you prefer to eat in, even though we don't offer room service. You'll find the extra personal service will enhance your experience.

Enrichment

We offer a daily programme of lectures, briefings and themed movies that enhance the expedition. You can enjoy snorkelling, sea kayaking and scuba diving*. A relaxed environment, without formal entertainment, is a treasured part of a Coral Expeditions adventure

Entertainment

In November 2016 a significant upgrade and refresh of facilities aboard Coral Discoverer was completed, this brings her amenities to an even higher level. 

The Sun Deck has evolved to become a new social space and the hub of on board community living. This area has been converted into an undercover deck area complete with round 'Explorers Bar' with bar stools and sun deck with lounges and on Promenade Deck an area for outdoor exercise equipment.

Health & Fitness

There is a small workout area on the Promenade Deck.

Kid & Teens

There are no dedicated children's facilities on board, however children and families are welcome.
