About Spirit of Freedom
Spirit of Freedom is a relatively new company in Cairns, spun off in 2002 from Tusa Dive, one of the most respected dive operators in the area. Using Tusa Dive's fine model as a guide, the Spirit of Freedom's aim is to provide a superior live aboard dive experience for their passengers, and based on the feedback we get from their guests they are doing just that!
