Coral Expeditions sets sail for West Australia and the Kimberley

Coral Adventurer is heading for Broome where she will operate Kimberley voyages with Coral Geographer and Coral Discoverer
Coral Adventurer has sailed from Fremantle for Broome to explore the Abrolhos and Coral Coast, and Coral Geographer has departed Broome on a 10-night Kimberley cruise.

This follows the opening this month of Western Australia’s border which has been closed for almost 700 days due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Coral Discoverer, the third ship in the Australian-flagged Coral Expeditions fleet, will head for the Kimberley mid-April.

Group GM Mark Fifield was on hand in Fremantle and Broome to see off both departures.

Patiently waiting

‘Our loyal guests and crew have been patiently awaiting this day,’ Fifield said.

‘The Kimberley holds a special place in our heart. Some of our expedition leaders have been guiding guests in the Kimberley for 20 years, yet they say that every voyage uncovers something new.

‘That is why we love this truly Australian adventure so much.’

Highest number

This year there are 50 planned expeditions in the Kimberley and Western Australia, carrying more than 3,000 passengers between March and October, the highest number in the history of the company. 

This week Coral Expeditions launched its full 2024 Kimberley season sailing schedule which is now open for bookings.
