Sail and Dive Trip, aboard Coral Sea Dreaming
Coral Sea Dreaming
Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Coral Sea Dreaming, a 55 foot Mono Hull Sailboat with a maximum of 10 divers and a Dive Staff of 2. It is for 2 days, 1 night, and allows 5 dives, plus 1 night dive.
Departure is from D Finger, Berth 9, Marlin Marina, Cairns at 8:00 AM Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, return time 4:30 PM.
We really like overnight trips out to the reef with small groups. Going on a liveaboard reef trip means that you have more time to spend in the water exploringt the reef, because the boat is not making a round trip between harbor and the reef the same day.
We like the ambience of small group activities, and enjoy the less crowded feeling and more personal atmosphere.
Coral Sea Dreaming has access to 30 dive moorings, more than any other boat operating here, that means the skipper has way more choices when it comes to finding, the best dive conditions each day and calm anchorages at night.
The boat visits Thetford, Moore, Milln, and Flynn Reefs, a cluster of reefs some 40km the Cairns and the coast. Sailing out and back takes around 4 hours. The small group size, just twelve guests, makes it easier for the dive staff to organize drift dives, night dives, and other unique opportunities. Certified divers usually make five dives on this trip, inlcuding one night dive. Snorkelers will have plenty of time in the water and the opportunity to make up to three introductory dives.
Coral Sea Dreaming is a modern steel sailing Ketch. Outfitted with a beautiful wooden interior, it has three private air conditioned cabins, each slightly different and able to suit different guests. This 55-footer is equipped with a generous fresh water supply, generator, fridge and freezer, she makes for a comfortable boat for 2-day trips and extended charters.
