Australia Live Aboards

> South Pacific > Australia

Features: Two live Aboards offer spectacular itineraries to the Great Barrier Reef, Cod Hole and Ribbon Reefs.

Fly-dive itineraries offer a unique over-under experience, with low reef flights that pass just 180m above the reef. Ribbon Reef’s 100 foot pinnacle is just 15 feet from the surface of the water. Creatures here range from big eye trevally, barracuda to nudibranch, stonefish and giant clams up to three feet wide.

Australia’s Coral Sea boasts crystal clear water with 100 foot visibility. Some itineraries include Osprey Reef where North Horn is famous for its sharks including grey whalers, silvertips, reef sharks, occasional hammerheads. Here the sheer walls are laced with gorgonians, sea whips, and bright yellow soft corals.
