The Dive

This trip gives you access to some of the best diving the Barrier Reef and Coral Sea has to offer on a short-term liveaboard trip. You will make the trip to North to Cod Hole aboard the Supersport, and return after your diving to Cairns by taking a low altitude plane flight, which will give you great views of the reef and the region's tropical coastline.

On the Great Barrier Reef you will visit some of the outstanding world class dive sites, including Challenger Bay, Cod Hole, and other sites on the Ribbon Reefs. Out in the Coral Sea you will experience the amazing vizibility, big fish action, and stunning drop offs on Osprey and North Horn Reefs. All told you will make up to 14 dives on this trip.

Please note that this trip extends across 5 days, from Thursday evening through to Monday morning, as you plan your itinerary. There are three full dive days on this trip. © Mike Ball Dive Expeditions

The Boat

Mike Ball advertises this dive vessel as "four star" and it is an apt description for this large, stable and extremely well furnished. At 100 feet in length with a 36-foot beam, this powerful twin hull boat makes for a stable and fast dive platform. There is plenty of space for the 29 passengers. All rooms and cabins are air-conditioned. Ten crewmembers supervise the dive, and care for the cabins daily. A lounge and bar, wave skis, and E6 photo processing and a full range of dive gear are additional features making this an award-winning dive vessel.

For more info about this boat, see the floorplan.
