GREAT BARRIER REEF AND PLUS MINKE WHALES!

From the dive deck – Kerrin Jones


Although weather conditions prevented Spoilsport from travelling out to the Coral Sea, divers enjoyed great diving in the slightly more sheltered Ribbon Reefs of the GBR. Highlights included encounters with potato cod, turtles, sharks, cuttlefish and some excellent coral gardens. As an added bonus we had several sightings of minke whales throughout the trip, including in-water interactions.

VARIETY

From the dive deck – Kristy O’Neill


Sharks galore at the Coral Sea this week! Over 6 hammer heads were spotted. Though the main highlight had to be our visit from the majestic whale shark! A variety of different schooling fish species throughout the week viewed in an array of dive locations. Topping it off with a green sea turtle feeding on a massive jellyfish.

MINKE WHALES STILL AROUND!

From the dive deck – Kerrin Jones


This expedition got off to a great start with a minke whale circling the anchored vessel on the first morning. After a day of diving the GBR Spoilsport headed out to Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea for sheer walls and plenty of sharks. Travelling south down the Ribbon Reefs divers encountered potato cod, turtles, cuttlefish - and two more minke whales at Lighthouse Bommie!
