Australia, the fascinating country for beautiful locales and breathtaking views, offers some of the finest diving sites in the world and the Great Barrier Reef is indeed the most perfect destination to choose for diving and snorkelling. Located 50 kms off the main coast, the Great Barrier Reef Liveaboard cruise is a great choice for you to explore this beautiful place and enjoy breathtaking views the place offers.
Being a little away from the main land, the Great Barrier Reef Liveaboards diving spots can only be reached via a day trip from the mainland and the journey itself is a wonderful experience with a beautiful expanse of the sea. This trip would involve prior planning, so make sure to connect with your travel operators for the best options.
Generally, a day diving trip would be at the Outer Barrier Reef (60 kms from Cairn), but that’s nothing compared to the spectacular view one gets by traveling a little further in, towards Ribbon Reef or Osprey Reef. It’s also good to know that Cairn has a lot of places that offer scuba diving lessons and has the highest number of PADI certifications. It is also the starting point for the Great Barrier Reef Liveaboards cruises. With endless places to see and a variety of options to choose for different levels of diving and snorkelling, the place is good for a novice or an expert diver.
Board a liveaboard dive vessel and get a chance to enjoy the best scuba diving experience on the Australian’s Great Barrier Reef. With great visibility up to 60 meters, thanks to the pristine clear waters, the Great Barrier Reef Liveaboards gives you an opportunity to spot various kinds of sharks, whales, different varieties of rays and the playful dolphins. Get up close and personal with the marine aquatic life of colourful fishes and view the superbly amazing corals.
Experience the wonders the place offers and don’t forget to watch the Minke Whales and the humpback whales that are best sighted in June-July and the amazing Coral Spawning (Nov-Dec) when corals release their eggs and sperm at the same time. Both the events are spectacular and truly a memorable experience of a lifetime. While planning a trip to this land of corals and more, do carry light and add in extra clothes as you would be spending most of your time diving in the water and do protect yourself from the sun exposure by using sun block/sunscreen.
Usually the diving season runs between August to December, with the best visibility during the month of September to November. However, as the weather conditions remain quite normal with temperatures ranging between 22°C to 30°C, the place is open throughout the year.
