Spirit of Freedom Details:
Australias Coral Sea Reefs are a system of isolated reefs that lie well beyond the Great Barrier Reef. It is here that you can experience an underwater world with exceptional visibility (average 30-40m), and reef landscapes of pinnacles and sheer walls laced with golden gorgonian fans. Drift diving with the currents, you will see huge schools of tuna, trevally and sharks passing you by.
Join the Spirit of Freedom on a 4 Day/ 4 Night dive adventure to the Coral Sea. At 37 metres, Spirit is one of Australias largest liveaboard dive vessels, with on board facilities to satisfy the most discerning dive traveller. Electronic stabilisers ensure the smoothest cruising, while the comfortable furnishings and polished timber interior, give you the feeling of being on a luxury private yacht.
Passenger entertainment areas include sun deck, lounge/ bar and huge dining saloon with wide screen TV/DVD system. Theres also a large fully equipped dive deck with Nitrox and photo facilities. 12 roomy cabins all feature private bathrooms and are serviced daily
About the Coral Sea:
To the south east, east and north east of Cairns and at least 100km offshore from the Great Barrier Reef, lie Australia's Coral Sea Reefs. Spirit of Freedom will travel to Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea. Destinations will vary and be selected to provide the best diving, and allow maximum dive time and passenger comfort, according to the prevailing weather.
The Coral Sea reefs feature spectacular walls, steep drop-offs and lone seamounts, rising thousands of metres from the ocean floor to just below the surface. Renown for crystal clear water with average visibility well in excess of 40 metres, a diver can appear suspended in air against a vertical wall laced with massive gorgonian fans. Sharks and schooling pelagics cruise through an amazing display of gorgonians, sea whips, and bright yellow soft corals, while nudibranch, anemones, unusual tropical fish, invertebrates, and huge schools of fish provide a rich variety of marine life.
