What to Expect
Dive to your heart's content in some of the most beautiful spots on earth on this 7-night boat trip with unlimited diving.

Covering a distance of 450 miles (724 kilometers) this Coral Sea Safari includes some of the best dive sites on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea. When you are not underwater taking in the breathtaking marine life, you will enjoy relaxing on board, knowing that your accommodation and meals will be taken care of.

While on this trip, you may dive as much as you like, and here are some examples of the places you will go:

Shallow but fantastic – Challenger Bay!
Challenger Bay is a spectacular introduction to the Great Barrier Reef. Gliding along, surrounded by schools of silver trevally, surgeon fish, diagonally lined sweetilp, and yellow striped bream, you explore pristine coral gardens in excellent visibility. You will understand why the "Great" is in Great Barrier Reef.

Diver-size fish at the Cod Hole!
One of the Great Barrier Reef's most amazing phenomenon awaits you at the Cod Hole. Swim with small diver size or giant fish size potato cod. Spend the dive amongst shallow sunlit coral gardens of acropora coral or venture deeper into the parallel gullies forming the front of the reef where huge Queensland groupers face into the current.

Friday night, heading N/E to Coral Sea!
While you are overnight aboard Spoilsport, you will venture 75 miles beyond the Great Barrier Reef to the remote Coral Sea. Without exception, guests and crew are impressed by the superb seagoing ability of Spoilsport.

Exciting shark action in the Coral Sea!
Your Osprey Reef adventure builds to a climax with a spectacular shark dive at North Horn. You will see 10-30 grey reef sharks, white-tip reef sharks, and other species. You can photograph these sleek high-order predators at close range, or not so close, you choose! Off the deep wall, solitary hammerheads are regularly seen, and schools are occasionally seen.

Lighthouse Bommie & Acropolis
And your next stop? Lighthouse Bommie is a pinnacle rising from the sand at 98 feet (30 meters). During June/July this is the world's hotspot for Minke Whale encounters. Acropolis Plateau is the new hot site shrouded in spectacular corals and festooned with baitfish, predatory fish, and critters.
