Rates Book Online

Most of the best dive sites can only be reached by boat. Live-Aboards minimise travel times, while maximising your scuba diving and snorkelling time on the reefs and wrecks.

The 37 metre, custom built Spirit of Freedom is one of Australia’s most comfortable and well appointed liveaboard dive vessels with electronic stabilizers, low vibration and sound emission. On board, guests are free to enjoy their own diving style. No limits are set on time, depth or style of diving within the boundaries of normal, safe and responsible diving practices.  

The Spirit of Freedom will take you to discover what diving dreams are made of. With  3 day Cod Hole, 4 day Coral Sea and 7 day Expeditions and twice weekly departures from Cairns you can enjoy some of the world’s best diving. See the massive Potato Cod being fed at the Cod Hole, experience the thrilling shark dive at North Horn, Osprey Reef, and in the winter months you may even encounter the inquisitive Minke Whale on the Ribbon Reefs.  10 day Far North Expeditions to the pristine isolated reefs that extend past the tip of Cape York peninsula are scheduled for October / November.
