Steve's Bommie was amazing. Seeing 2 manta rays, nemos and nudibranches was awesome.

Tom Greene - United States

We didn't have to do much other than dive, eat & sleep - which is what we came to do.

Carol Vermeulen - United Kingdom

Staff was always on hand to help or advise, always with a smile.The night dives were my highlight.


A New Year in the Coral Sea and GBR

From the dive deck, Kerrin Jones, 28 Dec 2017 - 4 Jan 2018


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.

Manta ray welcome

From the dive deck by Jelle Kolet 4 - 11 Jan 2018


On the very first dive of the expedition a black manta ray welcomed divers to the Great Barrier Reef making for a fantastic start. Cuttlefish fighting over females at Coral Kingdom and big schools of sailfin snapper at the Cod hole giving guests a glimpse of rarely seen behaviour. An abundance of nudibranchs at Lighthouse Bommie was the cherry on the cake.

Isabelle Bastian - USA

Callum was clear on the OW skills we needed to practice and simultaneously made sure we got to see the dive site & marine highlights.

Anthony Davis - USA

The variety of dive sites was excellent - some deep, some shallow, pinnacles, reef walls. We gained experience doing both guided and free dives.

Stirling Family - USA

We loved the friendly, fun & helpful crew, the food, the amazing dive sites with different, incredible things to see, and just the chance to truly eat, dive, sleep, repeat.

HAVING A BALL IN THE CORAL SEA

From the dive deck, Kerrin Jones, 11-18 Jan 2018


This week Mike Ball himself joined us for the Coral Sea portion of the trip, with three days spent at Bougainville and Osprey Reefs. One of the highlights was an exciting shark feed, followed by a private shark shoot for the serious photographers. Travelling south back to Cairns down the Ribbon Reefs, our recent spate of manta ray sightings continued with several sightings at various dive sites.
