Big Turtles and playful Cod

From the dive deck - Jelle Kolet


Giant green and loggerhead turtles were seen by happy divers on both Bougainville and the Great Barrier Reef. The potato cod at the famous Cod Hole were very playful and sent divers back beaming. The night dive at Gotham City was spectacular with hunting trevally and sharks creating a lot of underwater excitement.

Great diving was expected & we loved it. Crew & food exceeded expectations. Attention to detail was outstanding.

Eric Simpson - Australia

So well organised. All we had to do was dive, food was sensational. Staff were amazing as always as its my second trip.

Don & Kris Wood - United States

Staff is always smiling & ready to assist with anything & everything. Lighthouse Bommie was the prettiest of all with the greatest variety of sea life.


The Best of the Ribbon Reefs

From the dive deck, Kerrin Jones, 9-16 Nov 2017


Although strong winds kept Spoilsport in the shelter of the Ribbon Reefs this week rather than out in the Coral Sea, divers enjoyed some of the best the Great Barrier Reef has to offer. Highlights included cuttlefish found amongst the excellent coral at Coral Kingdom, encounters with schooling sweetlips and potato cod at the Cod Hole, sea snakes and a friendly turtle at Lighthouse Bommie.

From Cairns to Lizard Island and Back

From the dive deck - Kerrin Jones


This northbound trip featured two days of the best of the Ribbon Reefs, with divers encountering giant clams, cuttlefish, sea snakes, turtles and some wonderful coral gardens. Our third day of diving was spent out at Osprey Reef, with an exciting shark feed and colourful wall dives, with a final highlight on Monday morning of a scenic flight across the GBR from Lizard Island back to Cairns.

Mhair Cameron - Australia

We came for a dive trip & left with so much more. The crew made our time even more special.

Roxana Caha - Australia

Diving the reef at Raine Is. was very special: the colours of the corals were incredible; as was the coral cover & the numerous turtle encounters.

Mel Thomas - Australia

Amazing diving with exploratory dives. The most pristine reef I've ever seen was at Raine Island.


Turtle Spectacular

From the dive deck – By Jelle Kolet


The far northern reefs were a welcome surprise. Large pinnacles with stunning corals and abundant fish like Big Bommie and Epic were favourites amongst elated divers. It was turtle soup around Raine Island. Hundreds of breeding size green turtles were seen both from Spoilsport and underwater. The exploratory dives produced undiscovered dive sites of untold beauty.

Great Weather, Great Diving!

From the dive deck, Kerrin Jones, 30 Nov - 7 Dec 2017


Excellent weather allowed Spoilsport to follow our fair weather itinerary and visit three great reefs out in the Coral Sea - Holmes, Bougainville and Osprey. Highlights included sheer walls, plenty of fish, and an exciting shark feed. The fantastic weather continued for the southbound leg of our trip down the GBR’s Ribbon Reefs, with divers seeing plenty of potato cod, cuttlefish and even a manta ray!
