Makassar, Sulawesi 
Latitude: 5°11.670'S
Longitude: 119°23.508'E

The provincial capital was Ujung Pandang and had an important role as the gateway to the former kingdom of Gowa and now to the whole province because of its natural harbour. The centre of business and administration, the city has expanded outwards from its most important landmark that is 'Ujung Pandang fortress' that faces to the sea front. One of the eleven fortresses of the kingdom, built in 1545 during the reign of Tuni Pallanga, the 10th Gowa sultan. When Gowa capitulated to the colonial forces under the treaty of Bungaya in 1667, the fort was renamed Rotterdam by Admiral Spellman who constructed bastions and buildings of typical Dutch architecture making it the centre of the civilian government, Two buildings house Ujung Pandang State Museum, exhibiting archaeological and historical objects, manuscripts, numismatics, ceramics and ethnic costumes and ornaments.


Pare Pare

Parepare is a city (kota) in South Sulawesi, Indonesia, located on the southwest coast of Sulawesi, about 155 km (96 mi) north of the provincial capital of Makassar. A port town, it is one of the major population centers of the Bugis people.



Latitude: 0°28.899'S
Longitude: 117°09.187'E

The mighty Sungai Mahakam skirts Samarinda like a giant muddy flood. Here the river is a highway in its own right, peppered with houseboats and fishing vessels, boats lugging timber and tugs pulling demonic loads of coal. Along the banks, the city follows the water via a green esplanade, with two spectacular mosques dominating the view. Although it’s another important trading port, Samarinda has retained far more of its Indonesian character than Balikpapan, and visitors will get a dose of East Kalimantan culture in between the business blocks. Meandering through the stalls of the lively Citra Niaga market will fill the nostrils, ears and eyes with all the heady activity of Southeast Asia.


Toli Toli

Bunaken National Park

The Bunaken National Park is a marine park in the north of Sulawesi island, Indonesia. The park is located near the centre of the Coral Triangle, providing habitat to 390 species of coral[2] as well as many fish, mollusc, reptile and marine mammal species. The Park is representative of Indonesian tropical water ecosystems, consisting of seagrass plain, coral reef, and coastal ecosystems.

Togean Islands

The Togian (or Togean) Islands are an archipelago of 56 islands and islets, in the Gulf of Tomini, off the coast of Central Sulawesi, in Indonesia. The three largest islands are Batudaka, Togian, and Talatakoh. There are 37 villages on the islands, with one settled by the Bajau people, more commonly known as the sea gypsies.

Wakatobi National Park

Wakatobi National Park is a marine national park in Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. The name of Wakatobi is an acronym of the four main Tukangbesi Islands: Wangi-wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, and Binongko. Since 2005 the park is listed as a tentative World Heritage Site.

Ship info

Coral Adventurer

Coral Expeditions, Australia’s pioneering cruise line, has announced today with Norwegian shipbuilder Vard to build its fourth expedition cruise ship due to be delivered in mid-2019, with a further vessel intended to follow.
In the planning for over two years, this new ship is designed for ocean cruising to remote tropical areas and draws on the latest technical advances as well as Coral Expeditions’ 34 years of experience building and operating expedition ships.
Modern and rugged, the new ship will carry a maximum of only 120 guests in 60 cabins, preserving Coral Expeditions’ traditionally relaxed and intimate onboard atmosphere.
She will be Australian flagged and conform to the highest standards of build quality, operational redundancy, environmental compliance, and safety.
Vard is a Norwegian-headquartered company with nine shipyards globally and a long history of building complex and sophisticated ships to operate in the toughest conditions.
Custom-designed around its clientele and expedition-focused itineraries, the new ship will feature several of Coral Expeditions’ much-loved features:

  • Twin ‘Xplorer’ tenders mounted on hydraulic platforms that allow guests to embark and disembark for shore excursions without steps, queues or waiting
  • A natural light-filled lecture lounge equipped with modern technology for daily presentations and briefings by expedition experts
  • Facilities onboard to host scientific research missions and local exhibitors
  • Spacious communal areas, including a relaxed dining area which seats all guests
  • All outside-facing cabins with en-suite bathrooms; over half have private balconies
  • Open bridge policy and guest observation lounge overlooking the bridge
  • Multiple indoor and outdoor bars to see the world go by over a glass of Australian wine

The new ship will feature a modern Australian-designed interior with the colours and textures of tropical Queensland. Accommodations will be restful havens for guests returning from shore excursions and range from outside staterooms of 17 sq m (183 sq ft) to suites of 43 sq m (463 sq ft) with outside-facing bathrooms. Active stabilisers will ensure guest comfort in varied conditions.
The ship will join the Coral Expeditions fleet exploring the Kimberley region, Cape York and Arnhem Land (The Top of Australia), Papua New Guinea, the Spice Islands, Indonesia and the South Pacific. She will be in commercial operation from April 2019. More information will be released progressively.
The new ship will target guests who enjoy an intimate and destination-focused cruise experience that stands apart from mega-ship cruising.
