Cod Hole & Coral Sea – 5 Day/4 Night Dive Cruise
Day One – Pick up from Cairns or Port Douglas accommodation at 5.00pm and transfer to the vessel, which departs from Cairns Harbour, or Port Douglas Marina Mirage and travels over the smooth waters inside the Great Barrier Reef up to the Cod Hole.
Day Two – Arriving at the Cod Hole at approx 9am. We do our first dive at the Cod Hole, which allows divers to get back into the swing of things as well as check out the huge variety of marine life that lives in this area. Our second dive at the Cod Hole is the Cod Feed, where huge schools of fish and Maori Wrasses compete with the large family of Potato Cod for a fish dinner. This would have to be one of the world’s premier dive experiences. We do another dive in this area at either Dynamite Pass or Snake Gully, then a night dive. Depart this area at approximately midnight to travel to Osprey Reef.
Day Three – Diving Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea, the most exciting shark diving location in Australia. We do a Shark feed and some stunning wall dives in this world famous area that has an average visibility of 40 metres.
Day Four – This day is spent divng the Ribbon Reefs at various locations we have chosen for their diversity of marine life and coral architecture. You will see giant clams up to 2 metres across, huge coral gardens, swim throughs and an abundance of marine life unmatched anywhere on this planet. 3 day dives and a night dive.
Day Five – We do 2 dives on this day, as we are now nearing the end of our trip. These dives are on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef and feature unique coral formations and fish life. Then cruise through the reefs arriving back into Cairns or Port Douglas at approx 3.30 pm.
