What's this trip about?

    There is simply no better way to discover this region of North West Australia, universally acknowledged as one of the world’s last wilderness areas. Small ship cruising gains access to all the icons of the coast otherwise inaccessible by road. With Coral Expeditions, the pioneer and acknowledged leader in Kimberley expedition cruising, itineraries offer two landings most days aboard the unique ‘Explorer’ excursion vessel and fleet of inflatable zodiacs. Choose to cruise aboard one of two outstanding small ships: Coral Discoverer or Coral Expeditions I, each carrying an all-Australian staff and expert team of guest lecturers and experienced guides keen to impart their wealth of local knowledge covering the region’s landscapes, history and culture.
