The Coral Expeditions II is the ideal ship for discovering the Great Barrier Reef. Australian flagged, registered and staffed, the ship was purpose-built for cruising the region, small enough to allow snorkelling directly from the ship, yet equipped with the facilities of a much larger vessel.

The 22 rooms provide accommodation for up to 44 guests, traditionally maritime in style with private ensuites, air conditioning and large picture windows, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery.

The ship’s spacious lounge is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink from the cocktail bar. The large Sun Deck is another popular place to relax and take in the sights, with deck chairs and teak furnishings. You will also enjoy the opportunity to dine al fresco under the magnificent stars over the Great Barrier Reef or in the convivial Dining Room.

Coral Expeditions Ioperates an open bridge policy, allowing you to spend time with the Captain and crew. Follow our progression on the ship’s charts and chat with the Captain, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
