In times past, an Indian Ocean crossing was a sailor’s rite of passage, a truly daunting task on a wooden sailing vessel. Create your own legends on the new state of the art expedition ship Coral Geographer as she sails east in a southern arc from the ancient spice island of Zanzibar off the African coast and arrives on Australian shores for the first time at Fremantle. This is a classic 19-night ocean passage allowing you to settle into the rhythm of the sea and ship.
Featuring six suites with panoramic glass-enclosed baths, all outside staterooms and expansive deck areas shared with only 120 like-minded guests, you will enjoy tranquil comfort. Onboard is a highly qualified expedition crew supported by warm Australian hospitality.
This epic Indian Ocean crossing offers a rare opportunity to navigate one of the world’s great oceans in the wake of famed explorers like Dirk Hartog and Willem de Vlamingh. An extensive onboard program is offered, including Celestial Navigation lessons from Coral Expeditions’ Senior Master Capt. Gary Wilson, and an accompanying souvenir chart. Guest presenters and storytellers will be the only diversions as you share the waves with migratory seabirds and marine life.
If you are curious about the world and relish the adventure of an extended ocean crossing, join us onboard Coral Geographer for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
