2-day Great Barrier Reef
Sail and Dive Trip
Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Vagabond, a 68 foot Mono Hull Sailboat with a maximum of 10 divers and a Dive Staff of 3. It is for 2 days, 1 night, and allows 4 dives, plus 1 night dive.
Departure is from B finger, Marlin Marina, Cairns at 8:00 AM Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, return time 5:00 PM.
This trip visits dive sites that will give you the best diving available. Choices include Moore, Elford, and Thetford Reefs; Sudbury Cay and Fitzroy and Green Islands, according to the wind, weather, tide and currents.
Many of their dive sites are exclusive, and with no more than 10 divers in the water, you might feel like you have the entire reef to yourself! Divers can make up to 5 dives during the trip, including a night dive. Snorkelers will find there is plenty of time to spend in the water.
The evening is spent enjoying dinner, doing a night dive, and relaxing in the cozy galley area.
The Vagabond is a 68-foot steel, sailing yacht, set up for comfortable long-distance cruising and comfortable onboard life. Built in 1990, she recently received a major refit. The large aft deck offers plenty of room for gearing up, while the foredeck is perfect for post-dive sun worshipping. Double cabins and twin bunks accommodate its 10 passengers. (Keep in mind this is a sailboat, so cabin space is cozy.) All meals are prepared on board, with refreshments available 24 hours. No starvation rations on this trip!

Cairns local Mark Peters has recently returned from the business world of Los Angeles to be the active owner/operator of his boat, and we are glad he has come to his senses and returned to this beautiful part of the world!.
Mark and his crew run an operation that suits backpackers aand budget travelers looking for a smal group sailing trip out to experience the Great Barrier Reef. We like the fact that meals are prepared right on board, and that Mark is so actively involved with the daily operations of his boat.
