Dive the world famous Cod Hole and turquoise waters of the Ribbon Reefs, an ecosystem of unsurpassed marine diversity and exquisite natural beauty. You will encounter a family of giant potato cod, clouds of colourful tropical fish, anemones, turtles, olive sea snakes, and pristine coral gardens.
Take a scenic flight to Lizard Island to begin your diving at the very top of the Ribbon Reefs, on the Great Barrier Reef. Suitable for the more experienced diver, this tour travels 200km offshore to the oceanic wilderness of Australia’s Coral Sea, where ancient volcanic atolls plummet to thousands of metres below.
Combine our 3 and 4 night itineraries into a 7-day, 7-night liveaboard dive expedition from Cairns, taking in the vibrant and abundant marine life at the Ribbon Reefs and Cod Hole. You’ll also spend two days at the
world-renowned Osprey Reef in the remote Coral Sea.
