DIVE THE CORAL SEA & RIBBON REEFS ONBOARD SPIRIT OF FREEDOM
5 DAYS/5 NIGHTS
Sleek and spacious, the ‘Spirit of Freedom’ offers the best in live-aboard dive cruising to the Coral Sea and Ribbon Reefs.
Our 4 Day Coral Sea expedition begins Thursday morning at 8.30am, with a 200km low level flight from Cairns along the coastline and over the reef to Lizard Island. Landing on the small Island runway you will be met by our crew and welcomed aboard your adventure begins!
Your first day will see you diving the very top of the Ribbon Reefs, before our 100km overnight voyage out to the world-famous Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea. Isolated from other reefs, Osprey is an old volcanic atoll lying 220 km off the coast offers some of the world’s best diving.
You will spend two days diving a variety of Osprey’s spectacular sites, renowned for spectacular 1000 metre walls, massive soft corals, amazing 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. A natural amphitheatre makes this the perfect location for our shark attraction where you can witness up to 30-50 sharks circling.
Your final day is spent at Ribbon Reef Number 3, or occasionally if the weather permits, Bougainville Reef, to the south of Osprey Reef.
Spirit of Freedom is one of Australia’s most comfortable and well appointed liveaboard dive vessels. At 37 metres in length, with three decks of living space and generous cabins with private bathrooms, Spirit of Freedom offers all the amenities of a hotel, complimented by first class meals and outstanding service. A large dive deck with nitrox and photo facilities, houses every convenience to ensure comfort, safety and freedom in your diving.
