As reported here, on October 14 the 35-year-old company embarked on its first programme of cruises since the COVID-19 lockdown — a series of seven-night return trips around the Great Barrier Reef operated by the 72-passenger Coral Discoverer.
As also reported here, Coral Discoverer will operate a Tasmanian programme, starting with a 16-night circumnavigation of the island from Hobart on January 1.
Large tract of Australia
The 120-passenger Coral Adventurer, launched in April last year, will visit rarely explored corners of South Australia, the Great Australian Bight and coral reefs and islands of Western Australia and Queensland.
Commercial director Jeff Gillies said Coral Adventurer will cover a large tract of the continent between Cairns, Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle.
Gillies said as with the company's other domestic itineraries, passengers will be drawn from the Australian market and the numbers capped at under 100.
