Cape York

Distance Travelled: 33 NM
Steaming Time: 3 Hours

Cape York is not only the broad name of the extensive region of North Queensland, but it is also the name of the northernmost point of Australia or "The Tip".

In local indigenous language it is called "Pajinka" and it is a beautiful spot to trek too with views over emerald waters to nearby York and Eburac islands. A trek to "the tip", is a trip that is somewhat of a pilgrimage for many Australians each year over the dusty roads of Cape York.

The Coral Adventurer will arrive early in the morning after a short 3 hour steam from Thursday Island and guests will board our Xplorer tenders for a short cruise to our landing site and a magical moment watching the sunrise whist from rocky outcrops.

Our Story

Australia’s Pioneering Cruise Line
For over 30 years Coral Expeditions has had one purpose – taking small groups of like-minded explorers to the most remote parts of the world, with expert guidance and warm Australian hospitality. Coral Expeditions was founded by a fisherman with a passion for the sea. Then named Coral Princess Cruises, the small North Queensland based company explored the Great Barrier Reef and pioneered small ship expedition cruising to the Kimberley and Papua New Guinea. Today, Coral Expeditions has grown to include voyages to Tasmania, Islands of the South Pacific, New Zealand, and the Indonesian Archipelago. Our Australian crew provide warm hospitality and personal service on board. Shore-rich itineraries in remote locations allow our guests to be immersed in local cultures, get close to wildlife, and enjoy adventurous land and sea activities in safety. We invite you to celebrate 35 years of exploration with us.
