The Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea
Where we are diving
Enjoy spectacular biodiversity, exciting big fish action, shark encounters and excellent visibility during this rare opportunity to visit the remote and pristine reefs of the far northern Great Barrier Reef. We’ll be diving some of the best dive sites in the Coral Sea and on the Ribbon Reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. The Ribbon Reefs sit right on the edge of the Continental Shelf, bringing in an upswelling of nutrient rich water that attracts large fish populations and diverse coral species. We’ll see hundreds of turtles at the world’s biggest green turtle nesting site. There is no rush or limit placed on your dive time. We’ll usually dive 3 sites per day, up to five dives a day. Less experienced divers receive site orientations as necessary, while experienced divers are given the freedom to plan their own dives. Megan Oswald will be the Trip Leader.
