Small-Ship Walking & Wilderness Cruise

Embrace South Australia’s wild and wonderful islands on this unmissable 12-day adventure with a 10-night all-inclusive cruise (up to 99 guests) and a pre-cruise hotel stay in Adelaide. Weave through sparkling waters surrounding unspoiled landscapes in luxury onboard the purpose-built Coral Geographer, uncovering remarkable national parks and native wildlife along the way.

Get up close to striking landscapes on a series of guided hikes; tackle wave-carved coastal trails with white-sand beaches on Kangaroo Island, spot pods of dolphins and playful seals on the breathtaking Eyre Peninsula and be rewarded with sweeping ocean vistas throughout. Take the opportunity to cool off with invigorating swims in tranquil bays and hop in a kayak and admire the rugged coastline from afar; and back on land, spot birdlife on beautiful Troubridge Island and discover the forgotten history of Wedge Island and its secret WWII base. Along the way, enjoy the iconic flavours of South Australian gastronomy and indulge in fresh regional seafood and hand-selected local wines. Learn how to collect and shuck your own fresh oysters at Coffin Bay and taste freshly harvested abalone and seafood on the seldom-visited Flinders Island. Enjoy the assistance of expert guides, including Kangaroo Island resident and well-known writer and photographer Quentin Chester.

Onboard Coral Geographer, you’ll be treated to all-inclusive dining, drinks including select wines, house spirits and specialty coffee, and shore excursions with an experienced guide and insightful lectures to ensure that you get the very best out of your voyage.
