As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur trips adhere to ABTA’s industry-leading animal welfare guidelines to ensure the best possible practices with regard to working animals and wildlife viewing.
Marine Friendly SPF50+ Sunscreen is available onboard all vessels for all guests to use, and to avoid harming the unique marine environment.
The fact that, by travelling on a smaller vessel with fewer than 100 passengers, and by using local guides & Australian crew, they ‘tread lightly’ to minimise our impact on local resources and the environment.
Coral Expeditions donates to the Bare Sands Turtle Sanctuary, a valuable research project, and offers logistical support to transport staff, equipment, and turtles.
Coral Expeditions is proudly accredited as an ecotourism cruise operator with world-leading EcoTourism Australia. Some of the initiatives they have been a part of include parting ways with plastic straws in 2018, bringing water and supplies to drought stricken small island communities, providing on board education to all guests and they have also been involved in coral species collection for the world’s largest Coral Biobank.
Across the Coral Expedition fleet, they are continually looking for ways to improve their sustainability to reduce waste, partner with more Organic and Fairtrade suppliers, and deliver a food and beverage experience in line with their expedition roots and beliefs.
Coral Expeditions have successfully implemented measures to remove P.C plastics and reduce packaging waste in their food and beverage supply chain. For example, water provided on board is packaged in reusable recycled paper-based containers with a lid made from sugar cane in Far North Queensland. Please bring your own re-usable water bottle on this trip; filtered water will be provided where tap water is not drinkable.
Coral Expeditions rely on a community of local providers, farmers and growers and use locally-sourced food (as much as possible) which has not been transported long distances. This ensures each regional menu champions seasonality, whilst creating delicious dishes sustainably wherever possible.
Vegetarian and vegan options are available and included on all cruise menus, meaning passengers can opt for meals with a lower carbon footprint.
PeopleThe use of local guides and Australian crew, means customers will be well informed about local traditions, and cultural and social sensitivities.
Coral Expeditions acknowledges the First Nations people of Australia as traditional custodians of the lands on which they work and travel, and pay respects to elders past and present.
