Weather & Marine Life Activity
Tropical storms (cyclones) can occur between December and April. If a cyclone threatens the safety of an expedition it will be cancelled. Statistically 1 week of diving is affected every 2 years.
Trip cancellation insurance is recommended.
Coral Sea Access is prevented 9% of the time. If weather forces an itinerary change we divert to the best, ‘safe, accessible sites’ to ensure you get the best scuba diving available. The most reliable Coral Sea access is from September to January. A refund is not provided if Coral Sea is not accessed.
‘Fair Weather’ Itinerary: Weather permitting, our best selection of Coral Sea dives at Holmes, Bougainville & Osprey. Access is achieved 68% of the time, September to January.
