We have just returned from a scientific expedition with 121 surveys completed along and adjacent to the Northern ‘Ribbon Reefs’ sector. Virtually all sites visited by Spoilsport are on the outer Barrier Reef and beyond into the Coral Sea, as such we are pleased to announce, these reefs have been impacted minimally by this most recent event.

Mike Ball Dive Expeditions has consistently delivered exceptional service and unforgettable dive experiences. Our resilience in the face of adversity underscores our dedication to providing our guests with unparalleled adventures, regardless of external factors.

Throughout our history, we’ve navigated through various environmental fluctuations while maintaining our commitment to showcasing the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Our experienced team understands the importance of adaptability, ensuring that we continue to offer access to some of the most pristine and vibrant dive sites available.

All the very best fishes.

Diving was so amazing! When weather was not playing ball, staff worked their magic and still managed to find wonderful sites.
