EXCELLENT WEATHER, FANTASTIC DIVING!

From the dive deck – Kerrin Jones


Great weather conditions let us spend three days on the reefs of the Coral Sea, diving both Bougainville and Osprey. Divers enjoyed sheer reef walls with great visibility and plenty of sharks. Southbound, the Ribbon Reefs of the GBR provided encounters with potato cod, turtles, sea snakes and cuttlefish as well as plenty of excellent coral gardens.

FAR NORTHERN CORAL SEA EXPLORATORY

From the dive deck – Kerrin Jones


For this special week-long expedition, after diving Osprey Reef we travelled north of Lizard Island to an area very few people get the opportunity to visit, where divers enjoyed diving sites which had rarely if ever been dived before. Highlights included a huge school of bumphead parrotfish, leopard shark, turtles, sea snakes and some lovely coral-covered slopes.

Just like the movie Finding Nemo!

From the dive deck – Kristy O’Neill


What a fantastic week! We had a very successful shark feed within our 3 days spent at the Coral Sea. Then on the Great Barrier Reef, guests witnessed corals so beautifully healthy that they felt as if they were a character in the movie Finding Nemo. Then with hundreds of fusiliers engulfing the top of Steve’s Bommie, this site continues to be a main highlight.

ANOTHER GREAT CORAL SEA AND GBR EXPEDITION!

From the dive deck – Kerrin Jones


Our recent spate of hammerhead sightings continued at Osprey Reef, where divers also enjoyed an exciting shark feed dive and some great wall dives including North Horn’s colourful West Wall. Travelling south down the Ribbon Reefs, divers encountered huge potato cod, olive sea snakes, nudibranchs and groups of cuttlefish in amongst colourful coral gardens.
