To South Sulwaesi & Borneo for Christmas

Dec 2022, Coral Geographer

“Upon arrival at the Sekoyner River we transferred to wooden ‘klotok’ boats that would be our transportation for the remainder of the day’s adventure. A breakfast of Frittatas prepared by chef Jamie and his team was served on board as we cruised upriver spotting wild orangutans, orangutan nests, proboscis monkeys, kingfishers and other birdlife.”

Coral Adventurer Maiden Voyage Satonda & Tambora Village

Coral Adventurer’s Maiden Voyage

April 2019, Coral Adventurer

“We arrived at Satonda Island at 1230 and the Xplorer departed for Labuhan Kenanga Village. The welcome was beautiful under a magnificent shade tree on black volcanic sand. The Ale-Ale dance was performed and this is a very special traditional Sumbawanese dance only done on very special occasions. Costumes were traditional and very ornate.”

Wildlife & Warriors

May 2019, Coral Adventurer

“We left the Coral Adventurer and as the two Xplorers approached the village of Syuru, we were surrounded by 35 large canoes full of standing warriors dressed in feathers and body paint, whooping and brandishing their weapons at us. It was an amazing welcome. The Xplorers then landed onto a small jetty for a walk along a rickety wooden boardwalk. We congregated around a central area to watch a traditional dance put on by the men and women.”

Coral Geographer and Coral Adventurer are designed for tropical expeditions, featuring wraparound decks, private balconies, and outdoor dining to enjoy the balmy air and glorious sunsets. Open-sided Xplorer tender boats allow you to get up close and retrace the steps of the ancient seafarers.
