Australian small-ship expedition cruises Coral Expedition has released a new series of voyages to the small islands of Japan and the Philippines, as part of its Small Islands of the World series.
These unique voyages on Coral Adventurer will explore remote islands that are of historical, biological or anthropological significance.
Visit the island chains of the Japanese Ryukyu, Ogasawara and Izu archipelagos – where very few local Japanese have ventured into – and connect with ancient coastal lifestyles at traditional fishing villages while experiencing local culture and nature.
Other sites featured are the Taroko Gorge National Park in Taiwan, the largest marble gorge in the world; the 19th century Cabo Engano lighthouse on Palaui Island; and the site of General Douglas MacArthur’s beach landing at Tacloban in the Philippines.
Coral Adventurer will cast off from Guam on the inaugural expedition of the series where sailings will range from 14 to 16 nights, departing on selected dates from September 2023 to October 2023.
