Spirit of Freedom liveaboard

Experience an Unforgettable 3-Night Liveaboard Dive Trip Aboard 'Spirit of Freedom'

Embark on a captivating 3-night liveaboard dive adventure as you step aboard the sleek and spacious 'Spirit of Freedom.' Departing every Thursday from Cairns, our journey takes you along the seldom-visited Ribbon Reefs, culminating 240 km to the north at the world-renowned Cod Hole.

Throughout your voyage along the enchanting 'Ribbons,' you'll have the opportunity to complete up to 11 dives, immersing yourself in the mesmerizing underwater world. Encounter clouds of vivid tropical fish, an astonishing variety of healthy, vibrant corals, colossal clams, anemones, vast schools of cruising pelagic fish, and a family of gentle giant potato cod.

On Saturday, we'll set sail for the remote Lizard Island (Jiigurru), located approximately 90 km off the Queensland coast. We'll anchor in the secluded Watson's Bay for an overnight stay, where you'll be treated to an evening BBQ dinner on the top deck, surrounded by breathtaking views.

Sunday morning offers the perfect opportunity to explore the beauty and charm of Lizard Island. Wander its pristine shores and take in the stunning scenery before boarding a one-hour scenic flight back to Cairns, providing you with a bird's-eye view of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef.

Join us aboard the 'Spirit of Freedom' for an unforgettable liveaboard dive experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime as you explore the hidden gems of the Ribbon Reefs and Lizard Island.
