May on the Great Barrier Reef
From the dive deck - Kerrin Jones


Although strong winds prevented Spoilsport from travelling out to the Coral Sea reefs, the more sheltered Ribbon Reefs provided some fantastic diving this expedition. Divers experienced 40m plus visibility on several great sites, including Pixie Pinnacle, Coral Kingdom and Acropolis. A particular highlight was Lighthouse Bommie, where divers got close to a very relaxed turtle and saw olive sea snakes, nudibranchs and a flame file shell.

Awesome staff who obviously love their jobs. Their passion for the reef showed through. They were all incredibly professional, catered for everyone's needs and worked amazing as a team.

Akira Biondo - Hawaii

Abundance of life at Steve's Bommie; size of corals at Coral Kingdom; healthy shark population during shark attraction dive. Favorite sightings: cuttlefish, lionfish and olive sea snake.

Kirsten Brading-Griffiths - NSW

I loved all the interactions with staff. They really made the whole experience worthwhile.


Sharks in Full Glory

From the dive deck – By Kiana Saltarelli


An abundance of sharks joined our divers this week, including a hammerhead and several epaulettes. A green sea turtle munched on a jellyfish for photographers, while all divers had a chance to get up close and personal with olive sea snakes. Cuttlefish finished the show with a camouflage display whilst laying their eggs in patches of coral.

Gregory Bussiere - Oregon

The variety of marine life and the vibrant colours of the reef were breathtaking!

Wendy Johnson - New Hampshire

Seeing turtles, cuttlefish, sharks... what more could you want? Every dive was full of colour and life. The ability to do your own dive plan was perfect. Everything was better than expected, from dive sites to food. Everyone made you feel at home.

Bill Ordeman - Texas

I enjoyed all of the sights I dove. The final night party was a hit!

Number and variety of sites is great. The expeditionis very dive time focussed. Staff and service is exceptional.

Jeff & Ryan Brooks - United States

Such a variety of marine life experienced. Exceeded expectations.


May in the Ribbon Reefs

From the dive deck – By Kerrin Jones


Strong winds continued to blow this week, so Spoilsport visited the Ribbon Reefs of the GBR rather than Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea. Diving highlights included encounters with cuttlefish, sea snakes, turtles and well-camouflaged stonefish. A bunch of divers increased their diving qualifications, completing the PADI Advanced Open Water or Enriched Air Specialty course during their trip.
