Friday Day 2
4 dives + night dive
Guests will begin their day bright at early so they can start diving right away. This day will include possible dives at Ribbon Reef #9 - Pixie Gardens and Cod Hole. Divers can expect to see diver size potato cod at Cod Hole, as well as napoleon wrasse, barracuda and Maori Wrasse at other dive sites. With frequent sightings of rays, sharks and turtles, this will be a diving day to remember.

Saturday Day 3 and Sunday Day 4
8 dives + night dive
For the next to two days, guests will begin their days early so they can make the most of their day on the water. You will dive in the Coral Sea at Osprey Reef, where you will get to enjoy 40 meter visibility. Among some of the reef you will dive at are Western Wall, North Horn and False Entrance. In these reefs you will find a huge resident shark population with whitetip reef sharks, silvertips, hammerheads and grey whalers. The waters are also full of green sea turtles and loggerhead turtles, as well as caves, overhangs and walls full of coral gardens. On Saturday night guests will get to complete their second night dive. Then, on Sunday, the last dive will end around 4:00pm just in time for an Aussie BBQ party! Guests will wear their loudest tropical shirts and enjoy a sing along with the crew as they enjoy champagne and delicious food. You will cruise overnight to Lizard Island


Monday Day 5

Dive sites

False Entrance - Osprey Reef - Coral Sea: False Entrance at Osprey Reef is full of fish action as well as an abundance of beautiful corals. Known for its colourful gorgonian fans, resident barracuda and school big eye trevally, this location is a great spot to capture some amazing underwater photos.

Dungeons & Dragons - Bougainville - Coral Sea: This maze of caves, tunnels and swim throughs is a great place to discover fish and other critters of the Coral Sea. Divers can venture out over the reef top to a wall that descends 1000m, where sharks and barracuda hang out.

Clam Beds - Great Barrier Reef: Clam Beds are known for the giant clams that are spread out over the reef slope. Over a metre in length and weighing 200kg, the vibrant colours and fascinating structure make for great photo opportunities!

Joani's Joy - Great Barrier Reef: This beautiful location has a diverse landscape of coral gardens, coral walls and caverns. Hard coral bommies ride vertically from 20m where blue damsels, sweetlips and cuttlefish frequent.

Amazing - Holmes Reef - Coral Sea: This location is great for exploring with a maze of bommies that have created tunnels and swim throughs for visiting divers and the resident fish. Here you may see octopus, cuttlefish, rock lobster and even grey reef and silvertip sharks.

Your four day tour may take you to other amazing dive sites including Steve's Bommie, Nonki Bommie, MV Antonio Tarabocchia, Fairy Grotto, Admiralty Anchor, Crystal Plateau, North Horn and Western Wall. All locations offer something different to explore, discover and enjoy beneath the ocean's surface.
