Robert Spanghero - Italy

Private shark shoot incredible! Literally one inch from a shark gave me goosebumps.

Kerry Sullivan - New Zealand

The diving was superb but it was the flawless dive deck that made multiple dives for me so enjoyable.

Davide Perini - Italy

The crew is what made a beautiful itinerary. Massive coral formations, feeding frenzy for the shark attractions. All sites were amazing!


Bougainville delivers

From the dive deck, Jelle Kolet, 5 – 9 October


Fair weather and calm seas allowed us to visit the beautiful reefs out in the Coral Sea. Bougainville reef delivered with multiple hammerheads at Crystal Plateau. Dungeons and Dragons was an absolute favourite and an exploratory drift produced an amazing dive past cascading corals down towering bommies. The private shark shoot at North horn on Osprey reef was one of the best yet.

Excitement Below and Above the Waves

From the dive deck, Kerrin Jones, 12-19 October


The trip got off to a great start, especially for one young couple, with an underwater proposal at the Clam Beds. Osprey Reef provided a fantastic dive along North Horn’s West Wall. Above water, a manta ray was seen swimming alongside Spoilsport at Coral Kingdom, and guests watched a large pod of spinner dolphins cruising the area near Steve’s Bommie.

Mark Knight - United States

This is our 4th trip with Mike Ball each one has met or exceeded our expectations.

Sandrine Halbout - France

Kindness of the crew, the quality of the meals, the shark feed made an exceptional cruise.


See Forever & giant turtles

From the dive deck, Jelle Kolet, 19-26 October


Rough seas prevented Spoilsport from spending 2 days on Osprey reef, but the 1 day there was nothing less than superb. Over 40 meters visibility at False Entrance and on the Western Wall had divers awestruck. Reef sharks were out in force. Massive green & loggerhead turtles were seen on the night dives at Snake pit & Gotham city.

Coral Sea Exploratory Expedition

From the dive deck, Kerrin Jones, 26 Oct - 2 Nov 2017


Perfect weather for this week-long Coral Sea Exploratory expedition allowed us to spend four days out in the Coral Sea, visiting Holmes, Bougainville and Osprey Reefs. Nautilus were caught for viewing, sharks were fed, turtles and manta rays were seen. A group of coral scientists were also onboard conducting research and sharing their expertise.
