This is by far the best way for any serious diver to enjoy the Great Barrier Reef.

Simon Lamison & Molly Anderson - United States

Exceptional dive sites, a crew that are extremely professional, attentive and fun. Wonderful food, great boat, so well catered for, we could just focus on the diving.

Sean Harnik - United States

The variety of dive sites and the knowledgeable crew that helped me feel comfortable and safe with attempting new dive skills.


Picture Perfect Aggregations!

From the dive deck – Kiana Saltarelli


Large schools of maori wrasse, barracuda and big eye trevally set the tone for the first half of this week, while aggregations of cuttlefish, sweetlips and bumphead parrotfish stole the show in the second half. To top it off, guests were treated with a green sea turtle munching on a moon jellyfish and dolphins hitching a ride on Spoilsport's bow wave.

Richard Irvin (USA)

The shark feed was the best dive, and the staff were the best overall. This was an amazing experience!

Bill & Leo Song (Canada)

The crew gave very thorough procedures to ensure our safety, very considerate and thoughtful.

Joyce Liao (Taiwan)

Seeing the coral getting better and better and everyday we get great food. I saw a seahorse on a sea fan and I could stay with it until 'times-up', that was the best thing!


GREAT DIVING IN THE CORAL SEA AND GREAT BARRIER REEF!

From the dive deck – Kerrin Jones


Great weather allowed Spoilsport to spend the first three days of the expedition out in the Coral Sea, visiting both Bougainville and Osprey Reefs, where divers enjoyed sheer walls and an exciting shark feed at the North Horn Amphitheatre. Travelling south down the Ribbon Reefs of the GBR divers encountered Potato Cod, turtles, sea snakes and even some tiny pygmy seahorses hiding on sea fans.

Exciting animals big and small

From the dive deck – By Jelle Kolet


The potato cod at the North Horn of Osprey reef put up quite a show during an exciting shark feed. An oceanic manta was spotted at Gotham City sending divers back buzzing. Very special small critters cannot be forgotten. A gorgeous lacy scorpion fish and a jet black frog fish were found at Steve’s Bommie.

GIANT TURTLES, MANTA AND EAGLE RAYS ALL IN ONE DIVE!

From the dive deck – By Kerrin Jones


Although strong northerly winds limited our selection of dive sites this expedition, divers enjoyed some fantastic dives on the Great Barrier Reef. One highlight was the Snake Pit, where divers encountered a manta ray, an eagle ray, and several large turtles all in a single dive. Crack-a-Jack and Steve’s Bommie were also very popular sites with divers seeing leafy scorpionfish, stonefish and even spotting a rare lacy scorpionfish.
