Possible sites we visit:

The central section of the Great Barrier Reef offers some of the best spots for diving and snorkeling. Our experienced crew will select the best sites to visit on the day based on weather conditions and most likelihood for corals to spawn.

Peacock Bommie at Davies Reef rises from depths of over 30m up to 5m from the surface. Schools of fusiliers, fairy basslets and snappers explode around you, as larger pelagic fish cruise past. Waft away clouds of glassfish to uncover pipefish, cleaner shrimp, and count the number of coral cod.

Vic’s Patches on Keeper Reef or Fish Bowl offers tantalising swim-throughs that see beams of light revealing delicate nudibranchs, camouflaged frogfish, giant puffer fish and wide-eyed cave dwellers peeking up through the dark.

The North Face of Wheeler’s Reef offers an action-packed drift dive for Advanced or training Adventure Divers to cruise at 20m past schools of humphead parrotfish and huge Spanish mackerel, whilst spotting wobbegongs in the sand as the occasional grey reef shark watches on
