Escape the crowds on a unique Australian dive liveaboard with the Coral Sea Dreaming yacht. With exclusive access to 28 moorings on 9 different reefs, you will visit some of the most beautiful dive locations out of Cairns. Dives are focussed around the Outer Great Barrier Reef at famous areas such as Flynn and Milln Reefs and dive site depths are between 1-30m, making them perfect for snorkellers and divers of all levels. Marine life encounters can include turtles, reef sharks, schools of pelagic fish, dolphins and stunning coral walls. All snorkelling and dive gear is included, as well as a free 10-minute try-dive for non-certified divers.
Topside the 18m Coral Sea Dreaming liveaboard is a steel ketch with a beautiful wooden interior. A variety of cabins are available to suit different budget types. There is a 4-person shared bunk cabin, 2-person shared bunk cabin, and 3 private double cabins, all with shared bathrooms. AC and fans are fitted throughout the boat for added comfort.
Guests can enjoy not only the best dive sites out of Cairns but also the unique experience of sleeping with the stars overhead and waking to a Coral Sea sunrise. Delicious home-cooked meals are prepared on board, and snacks will be offered throughout the day. The Coral Sea Dreaming yacht caters to just 12 guests, to ensure a more personalised service, uncrowded sites and full-length dives.
If you're looking to escape the crowds and explore the Outer Great Barrier Reef, then the crew of the Coral Sea Dreaming liveaboard are ready to make your stay an adventure of a lifetime. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.
