Want to do some of the best diving you can do on a weekend in Australia? This trip has to one of those.
This weekend trip combines a day of diving (4 dives) on the Great Barrier Reef with 3 dives on the Yongala Wreck. starting On the reef portion this trip on Saturday you will visit Wheeler and/or Keeper Reefs. Sunday you dive 3 times on the Yongala Wreck known for the abundant big fish that frequent the wreck and rich soft and hard corals that grow on the wreck itself. This is the only trip with a dive itinerary that allows you to make three dives on the wreck.
While the diving on the Reef itself is not too technical, Diving on the Yongala wreck most certainly is. For safe diving Adrenalin Dive requires divers to have a minimum dive experience of 6 logged dives, and requires anyone without advanced certification or 15 logged dives with 5 dives in the past year to complete a pool assessment and wreck orientation. Snorkelers, take note that you would not be able to do and intro scuba dive or snorkel on the Yongala wreck.
As with Yongala trips run by all operators, wind, tide and wave conditions may prevent diving on the wreck, and in that case that day’s diving is done on the Great Barrier Reef.
We also caution you, that weather does cancel this trip, more frequently than any other dive trip we offer. If you are making what might be your only dive trip to the Great Barrier Reef you might consider taking a liveaboard trip out of Cairns, as dive trips departing from Cairns have a very low rate of weather-related cancellations.

The Sea-esta is one of the veterans of the Great Barrrier Reef dive scene. She's definitely not the newest or fastest boat in the dive fleet. That said, she is a reasonably comfortable boat, and suited to her purpose of providing great liveaboard dive experiences at a very low price.
The boat takes up to 20 divers out to the reef, in an assortment of double, twin, and 4-share cabins. There are ample covered deck areas to keep you and your gear out of the sun, and a galley capable of keeping you well fed.
