Itinerary

Your Liveaboard Dive Boat

Built in 1984, she was sailed to Cairns and refitted to cater for 20 divers and gear, with a roaming distance out to 200 Nm from the Coast survey.

She is still the very first Coral Sea liveaboard diving vessel operation from Cairns.

The Coral Sea Diving Company took over operation September 2000.

In late 2005, she was brought by another dive company and put back into service for the overnight market on the Great Barrier Reef - Cairns section, and has been available for Charter's to the Coral Sea Reefs and Great Barrier Reef Ribbon Reefs for the past 12 years.  

Captain Richard and PADI Course Director Masa have worked these reefs since 1995, both working on her when she did regular runs to Holmes Reef, and together for the past 12 years on Private Boat Charters

Our Dive Boat

Our dive boat is a 66-foot motor sailing schooner. Built in 1984, and with a nearly indestructible fiberglass hull,

The boat will accommodate up to 16 divers in twin and 4-share cabins, with the berths in each cabin set up single bunk style. 

As typical for anyone familiar with sailboats, the cabins are not spacious or very private; they are for resting and sleeping only.

The common areas include a dining area and both covered and open decks.

Overall, she is a comfortable sailboat, well suited for adventurous divers.

It is by no means a luxury dive boat. Those seeking privacy and luxury should consider trips on some of our other liveaboard shark diving tours on the Great Barrier Reef.

There are USB and 240V AC outlets for charging cameras, and Hot water in both separate Male and Female Toilet - Shower cubicles.
