Coral Expeditions will launch a new voyage to the Sub-Antarctic, set to depart on January 31, 2024 onboard Coral Geographer.

Coral Expedition Commercial Director Jeff Gillies says the itinerary is truly unique and immersive.

“It is a true sub-Antarctic trip that gives our guests a taste of the unique topography, rugged wildlife and lonely history of the southern islands.

“We already operate in New Zealand and Tasmania. We like to go deeper into our destinations and this sub-Antarctic voyage is a natural progression of our explorations of the Southern Ocean. We expect it to be popular amongst our loyal clientele, who are eager for new destinations in our portfolio”.

A special call on the two-week cruise will be at Macquarie Island, which sits halfway between Tasmania and Antarctica. Here, guests can go on guided walks and gaze over the truly special biodiversity and landscape.

Another highlight is visiting the world’s loneliest tree. Known as the Sitka Spruce, this tree stands alone with the closest tree more 200km away.

Beyond this, as you journey throw Auckland Island, Campbell Island and Macquarie Island and more, expect to spot all sorts of elusive mammals and rare seabirds, in these wildlife rich areas.

Prices start from $14,420pp for a stateroom. Prices include all meals, selected alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, tips and gratuities, expedition photos, use of Xplorer and Zodiacs and more.

You’ll be onboard the robust Coral Geographer for this brand new adventure.
