One of the distinctive features of Coral Expeditions’ vessels is their tender capability, known for facilitating ease of participating in shore excursions. Each ship carries a tender vessel which is hydraulically lowered and lifted, enabling guests to transfer for excursions right off the main deck. Coral Adventurer carries all 120 guests in two Xplorer tender vessels.  Additionally, Zodiac tenders enable more intrepid excursions by getting closer to attractions or when shore landing conditions may be challenging.
