The Spirit of Freedom courtesy coach will pick you up from your Cairns city hotel at 7:00 a.m. and transport you to Hinterland Aviation at Cairns General Aviation Airport. First, you will board a light plane for a picturesque ride up the coast to Lizard Island, where your 4-night liveaboard dive tour will begin.
When you arrive, be greeted by the crew and travel across to the vessel by tender. Following a quick vessel tour, we will depart for Ribbon Reefs 9 and 10. We’ll be able to do two dives this afternoon to Challenger Bay, Lighthouse Bommie, Pixie Gardens, and Pixie Pinnacle, among other places. After dinner, we will set out in the dark for a 10-hour journey across the Coral Sea to Osprey Reef.
Monday and Tuesday
As long as the weather permits, we will spend two days diving at Osprey Reef. The Coral Sea reefs of Australia are known for their crystal clear water and 30 to 100 metres visibility. The scenery is breathtaking, with steep walls lined with gorgonians, sea whips, and bright yellow soft corals reaching hundreds of feet above the ocean floor. The Spirit of Freedom shark attraction dive is completed at North Horn. This point of Osprey is a spot where you can see grey reef sharks, silvertip sharks, and Hammerhead sharks if you are lucky! Each day will have four to five dives, including a night dive on Monday.
After the diving is complete and our bellies are full, we will depart Osprey Reef on Tuesday night for an overnight steam.
This morning we will wake up back on the Ribbon Reefs. Today’s plan is to dive the incredible Steve’s Bommie and a few other sites at Ribbon Reef Number 3. If we have phenomenal weather, we will head south to Bougainville Reef. It is notable for its distinctive underwater topography, caves, and the half-submerged wreck sitting atop the Reef.
Sooner or later, it will be time to start steaming home, sadly wrapping up our Osprey Reef trip. Enjoy a delicious farewell BBQ dinner with the crew.
Just as the sun peaks over the horizon, Spirit of Freedom will dock back at the Wharf at approximately 6:30 a.m. After enjoying a light breakfast on board, it is time for a group photo and to say our goodbyes.
