Are you looking for a unique diving adventure exploring some of the more remote parts of the Great Barrier Reef? Then this special 14-day exploratory expedition onboard Spirit of Freedom is just for you!
Departing from Cairns, this is a rare opportunity to dive the remote and priostine Far Northern Great Barrier Reef. These reefs are seldom visited by any boats and many of the hundreds of reefs in the region are yet to be explored.
The trip is scheduled during the best time of year to dive the outer walls of the Far Northern Reefs, offering a great chance of encounters with megafauna such as tiger sharks, manta rays and whale sharks, as well as the occasional marlin. Divers can also expect a lot of shark action with silvertip, grey reef and whitetip reef sharks. The region is home to masses of pelagic and reef fish and an incredible variety of colourful corals and invertebrates. This time of year is also the nesting season for the green sea turtle.
As well as visiting these remote dives sites the trip will include known sites at reefs such as Great Detached Reef, Ashmore Reef, Pandora’s Entrance, Wishbone Reef, and Tijou Reef. The well known Ribbon Reefs will also be included in the itinerary, with dives at sites such as the Cod Hole and Steve’s Bommie. Diving in such a diverse range of habitats, in some of Australia’s most remote regions is a unique opportunity not to be missed!
