Coral Expeditions Launches New ‘Passages at Sea’ Series. The ‘Passages at Sea’ series introduces a unique seafaring experience for guests seeking solitude at sea at an attractive fare

Coral Expeditions (Logo)Australia’s pioneering cruise line Coral Expeditions has launched a new series of voyages that showcase an authentic seafaring experience. The ‘Passages at Sea’ voyages aboard its modern Australian-flagged fleet allows guests to partake in a unique life experience on a working expedition ship undertaking navigational crossings.

To attract Coral Expeditions’ loyal guests, these voyages are priced at a 30-40% discount off the normal expedition rates. An additional 10% Early Bird offer is available for bookings made before 30 September 2022.

From observing the crew at work, learning about navigation and ship-handling, enjoying conversation with like-minded passengers and appreciating the solitude on deck with a good book – this is a true blue-water expedition. These voyages will allow guests to unplug from life on land with open horizons, star-filled night skies and fresh air.

The feature voyage in the series is an epic 19-night navigation of the Indian Ocean that departs Zanzibar in the west coast of Africa before charting eastwards to arrive in Fremantle after covering 4,550 nautical miles. This voyage presents a rare opportunity to cross one of the world’s great oceans in the wake of famed explorers like Dirk Hartog and Willem de Vlamingh.
