Great Barrier Reef Cod Hole, Northern Reef & Coral Sea Live Aboard Tours

These liveaboard dive excursions will travel far further afield than the Great Barrier Reefs located directly off the coast of Cairns. These are premium dive excursions and they are aimed toward the more serious, advanced Scuba Diver who would like to travel to the more pristine and less often dived locales. Whilst these excursions are a little more expensive than the standard dive liveaboards, they tend to cater to smaller numbers of passengers and travel further north along the Great Barrier Reef to dive locations including the Ribbon Reefs, Cod Hole off of Lizard Island and in some instances, further out to the Coral Sea.

If you choose to Scuba Dive in the Coral Sea you are guaranteed a minimum of 30 metres visibility all year round! The Coral Sea reefs also feature spectacular walls, steep drop-offs and lone seamounts, rising thousands of metres from the ocean floor to just below the surface. Coral Sea reefs are also renown for sharks and schooling pelagics which cruise through an amazing display of gorgonians, sea whips, and soft corals, while anemones, tropical reef fish, invertebrates, and huge schools of fish provide which all comprise the rich variety of marine life.

Some of these excursions include low-level scenic reef flights (one way, either out to / or back from the Great Barrier Reef) in order to reduce travelling time and increase dive time.
