Half Moon Bay & Queenscliff

We uncover historic tales of lifeboats, fishermen, rescues and maritime heritage in the area around the "RIP" (The entrance from Bass Strait). Settled in the 1850's, Queenscliff is characterised by historic shop fronts and encompassing three-sides of coastline that combine sandy beaches, rocky outcrops, cliffs and historic piers.

While in this area, there will be the opportunity to swim with dolphins and snorkel the unique reef.

Traditional owners: Wautharong people of the Kulin nation

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.
