We have been lucky to secure bookings aboard the live-aboard “Spirit of Freedom”  for the 2nd December departure.

Here is what we can do on the itinerary available:

The 7 Day Expedition departs Thursday 2nd Dec from Cairns, and travels 240km along the rarely visited Ribbon Reefs, to the famous Cod Hole dive site. Along the ‘Ribbons’ you will encounter clouds of colourful tropical fish, an incredible variety of vibrant healthy corals, giant clams, anemones, huge schools of cruising pelagic fish, and a family of giant potato cod.

Included in your itinerary is an overnight stay in the secluded Watson’s Bay, with a couple of hours to explore Lizard Island, and 2 full days at Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea.

An old volcanic atoll lying 220km off the coast, Osprey Reef is renowned for its spectacular walls to 1,000m, its massive soft corals, shark action, and exceptional visibility. ‘North Horn’ at the tip of Osprey is a site where grey reef sharks, silvertips, and the occasional oceanic congregate. Here you can also experience a close encounter with the Spirit of Freedom shark attraction dive. We finish back at Cairns on Thursday 9th Dec.

Includes all meals and up to 25 dives (depending of conditions). The boat offers a range of accommodation type from Quad share through to Deluxe rooms.
