Set sail to Cairns outermost reefs on the magic vessel 'Coral Sea Dreaming'.
Coral Sea Dreaming is a strongly built 16 metre steel yacht, uniquely designed to travel to the Great Barrier Reef in all kinds of weather. Her rugged build provides a safe platform to sail, dive and snorkel. Departing in the early morning from Cairns Marlin Marina, you will enjoy a beautiful sunrise sail out to Cairns outermost reefs and get to know your new friends. Along the way the crew onboard will conduct introductory and certified dive briefings and a marine naturalist brief.
Your first Outer Reef location is Flynn Reef, with depths ranging from 5 to 28 meters, it will give divers a wide range of options. You'll experience extensive coral gardens with an unbelievable amount of marine life, and expect to encounter turtles, small reef sharks as well as schools of pelagic fish. A freshly home-cooked meal and afternoon tea will be provided.
In the afternoon, the boat will travel to its second location, Milne Reef, home to the Three Sisters and The Whale. The Three Sisters, with depths ranging from 6 to 36 meters, is one of Cairns most famous dive sites and offers unsurpassed night and early morning dives. You will experience an afternoon dive or snorkel before enjoying a special night diving. Dinner is served once activities are completed (during winter, dinner may be served prior to night diving). After dinner, you can enjoy tea and coffee, or purchase an ice cold beverage from on board bar to enjoy your tall tales.
Have a good night as there's more waiting for you on Day 2!
Awake to the dawn and watch the sun rise over the Coral Sea!
Dive into the warm tropical water and wake yourself up! This is the perfect time to snorkel or scuba dive as early morning is a fantastic time to see reef sharks, turtles and cruising pelagic fish.
After a breakfast, boat will depart to its next location. Generally this location will offer more experienced divers the chance to have a great drift dive (if at The Edge). Otherwise, you can expect a range of boomies and coral gardens at Hastings or Michaelmas Reef. Morning tea is served on the way.
After mid-morning, depending on weather, the boat will move to another site or reef where you can experience more snorkelling or diving. If you are "activity-out", this is also an excellent time to catch up on some serious sun tanning or relax, read a book and take in the stunning views. Lunch is served before departure.
On your journey home, you may spot dolphins surf the bow wave and during the winter months, see humpback whales. You will be treated to a spectacular view as you approach one of Australia's most scenic harbours – mountains on the left and right rising high above a beautiful tropical city skyline.
