Shannon Gomez - United States

Dives were gorgeous, food was delicious and the staff beyond helpful.

Garrett Dunn - United States

We knew the diving would be spectacular but didn't think the crew would challenge the GBR for the "Best thing about our Trip".

Nicole Hines - United States

Dive sites had plenty of life. Steve's Bommie was our favourite.

Great dives with great people. 'Amazing' the dive site lived up to its name. Shark feed & a whale shark.

The combination of amazing diving & amazing service. The crew are a rare breed of friendly & professional. A home away from home.


Lucky Divers

From the dive deck - Jelle Kolet


Extremely lucky divers were treated to a whale shark sighting during an already amazing shark feed at the amphitheatre on Osprey Reef. A tiger shark made an appearance at Bougainville reef. The cod at Cod Hole were engaged in a mating dance. Allowing guests to witness this unique courting behaviour.

Everything was painless from start to finish. I do not recall a time when everything was so well organised. Pinnacles were awesome.

December in the Coral Sea and GBR

From the dive deck - Kerrin Jones


Our northbound fair weather itinerary saw Spoilsport visit the Coral Sea’s Holmes, Bougainville and Osprey Reefs, where divers enjoyed sheer walls with plenty of swimthroughs and caves to explore, and encountered plenty of sharks. The southbound trip from Lizard Island back to Cairns provided great diving on the Ribbon Reefs, with sharks, cuttlefish, turtles, and sea snakes seen.

Chris Frantz - USA

The nautilus and shark encounters made for memorable experiences. But honestly, everything was exceptional.

Michelle Grobler - Mauritius

I really enjoyed the convenience of being able to dive at my leisure and the shark feed dive, the nautilus encounter & the Cod Hole.

Sylvia Tracey - Australia

The crew and volunteers were extremely helpful and cheerful. Great quality food and special care given to my vegan diet. Thank you!


Christmas Coral Sea Exploratory Trip

From the dive deck - Kerrin Jones


The guests on this week-long Coral Sea expedition must have been particularly good this year as Santa brought us great weather and sightings of some rare and unusual creatures for this Christmas trip. Fourteen nautilus were caught for viewing from the depths of Osprey Reef. Rare and elusive Lacy Scorpionfish (or Rhinopias) were spotted at two locations, and at Lighthouse Bommie divers watched a sea snake swallow a butterflyfish whole.

A New Year in the Coral Sea and GBR

From the dive deck - Kerrin Jones


Our northbound guests ended their year with three days of Coral Sea diving at Holmes, Bougainville, and Osprey Reefs, culminating in an exciting shark feed and a special New Year’s Eve Spoilsport party night. Our southbound guests got their new year off to a great start with three days of excellent diving on the GBR, with highlights including a dive at Pixie Wall where two mantas, cuttlefish and a school of bumphead parrotfish were seen.
