Coral Expeditions I is a 35-metre catamaran, designed to operate with comfort and stability in the remote waters of Australia's north. The boat was conceived by the affable and experienced Captain Tony Briggs and has earned a fine reputation while operating in the waters of the Great Barrier Reef in Tropical North Queensland, the Kimberley and Across the Top of Australia.

The ship is fully air-conditioned, with onboard accommodation for 50 guests.

Accommodation comprises 24 spacious, elegantly appointed rooms. The discerning traveler has a choice of Deluxe, Upper Deck or Standard Staterooms, whilst the more budge conscious may select a cabin. All accommodation features a choice of twin or double beds, expansive ocean views, individual air-conditioning and private en suites. All rooms are serviced daily.

The ship has a bar, an open dining room, and a lecture/lounge room with a TV and video and an open bridge. Coral Expeditions I is particularly well equipped for shore excursions with Zodiacs and a purpose-built landing craft 'Explorer', designed by Tony specifically for exploring the shallow, tidal and often narrow waterways of the Kimberley and a Glass Bottom Boat on the Reef itineraries.

New onboard communication system implemented onboard Coral Expeditions I. The new system will make it easy for guests to remain in contact with friends and relatives at home during their cruises. This new system means that making phone calls home from the ship is much more cost effective, and also provides guests with the opportunity to access high quality wireless internet. Guests are now able to purchase a pre-paid internet card aboard the ship and then connect to the internet through either a laptop computer, a PDA or the ship's onboard computer.
