On 16 December 2022, Coral Adventurer will cast off from Cairns on a journey to the remote islands of Wallis and Futuna, ending 21 nights later in Auckland.
‘Our guests look for us to pioneer new expeditions and we have done that with Wallis and Futuna,’ says Coral Expeditions commercial director, Jeff Gillies. ‘Our new fleet enables us to explore places few have heard of – let alone visited. These small islands caught our attention due to their rich and complex history.’
Coral Expeditions’ voyage will showcase layers of cultural influences marked by ancient Polynesian thatch fale houses, the traditional kava drink and imposing Catholic Cathedrals. After exploring Wallis and Futuna, Coral Adventurer will steam further south to Niue.
With no fixed itinerary, the captain and expedition team will survey conditions along the way and call on rarely visited destinations such Luganville and Pentecost Island in Vanuatu. More about the voyage here.
