WEEK-LONG FAR NORTH CORAL SEA EXPLORATORY EXPEDITION!

From the dive deck – by Kerrin Jones


After spending our first two days at Bougainville and Osprey Reefs, Spoilsport headed further afield to some rarely visited sections of the Great Barrier Reef north of Lizard Island. Strong currents provided the opportunity for some great drift dives along walls of pristine coral. One of the finds of the trip was a Hairy Ghost pipefish, spotted by an eagle-eyed guest. Another highlight was a close sighting of humpback whales, seen from the vessel.

Eva Tong - Canada

The crew made all the difference. The hammerhead helped too, but besides the amazing dive sites, the crew was above and beyond.

Kevin Salisbury - United States

The wonderful staff and the Western Wall, North Horn. Amazing site. Also food was top notch.

Rod O'neill - United States

The crew were amazing. Trevor's singing made for great end of trip entertainment. Trip video was a nice recap.


Sharks, snakes and aliens

From the dive deck – by Jelle Kolet


Hammerheads, silver tips and plenty of grey reef sharks made the two days at Osprey reef a true delight for excited divers. The elegant olive sea snakes put on quite a show at Lighthouse bommie on Ribbon Reef 10. Several Octopi and cuttlefish with their alien looking appearance were seen flashing their colours at the amazing Coral kingdom.

Christopher Weldon - United States

The diving sites were great. All the dives ran very smoothly due to the great staff. I found that safety was a top priority.

Andrew Ingram - United States

Seeing so many different animals from the small to the large was absolutely amazing. Getting so close to the cod was pretty special too

Amy Roseman - United States

Everything was extremely well organised. Everyone worked together like a well oiled machine. I loved that I could just relax when I got on board. I did not have to think or plan anything.


Busy at the Cod Hole

From the dive deck – by Jelle Kolet


The amount of fish congregating at the Cod Hole was phenomenal this expedition. Camouflage cod started to arrive in greater numbers for their annual spawning. The colourful sweetlips schooled together in the hundreds in preparation for a mass mating event. All this activity attracted droves of fish and plenty of sharks who are hoping for an easy feed.

From Hammerheads to Cuttlefish

From the dive deck – by Jelle Kolet


Multiple hammerheads were sighted at both Round the bend and North Horn on Osprey reef. Ticking that shark box for many divers. On the ribbon reefs cuttlefish were out in numbers. Clam beds, Goggle Gardens, Coral Kingdom and Flare Point provided a stunning back drop for these masters of disguise.
