Penneshaw Kangaroo Island

Distance Travelled: 64 NM
Steaming Time: 6 Hours

Departing Port Adelaide before sunrise, the Coral Adventurer will make her way to Kangaroo Island and the historical town of Penneshaw.

Over a third of this 155 km long Island is protected nature reserves, home to diverse terrain including soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, wetlands and white beaches.

With such pristine environments and separation from mainland comes incredible opportunities to spot thriving wildlife. In addition to Kangaroos, the island is home to sea-lions, Koalas, and one of our favorites - little Penguins. Adequately named, these Penguins are the world's smallest.

Early explorers, Flinders and Baudin, both stopped at Hogs Bay to take on water provisions.

Whilst on the Island guests will visit the township and both the maritime and Folk museums and will also experience the wonder of little penguin colony viewing.

We will arrive at the island at 10am and enjoy a full day to explore.

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.
