Our Trip

If escaping the crowds to some of the Great Barrier reefs most pristine scuba diving and snorkel locations is your idea of a perfect holiday, then let Coral Sea Dreaming sail you into paradise for an epic 2 day and 1-night liveaboard adventure you will never forget. Departing from Cairns every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, MV Coral Sea Dreaming is an 18m steel ketch with beautiful wooden interior. As you descend into the air-conditioned cabins you will find 6 shared bunks for the social and solo travellers, and for the intimate honey mooners or holidaying couples, there are 3 private cabins. With exclusive access to 29 moorings spread over 9 of the best locations, you will visit a selection of the best Great Barrier Reef sites such as Flynn and Milln reef- well known by the avid diver and snorkeler, as well as protected bird nesting habitats such as Michaelmas Cay. Taking only a maximum of 12 guests, we guarantee low group numbers providing you a more intimate dive and snorkel experience, making it perfect for the first timer or the more experienced. A relaxed schedule and our on-board compressor allows for unlimited tank refills for you to really maximise your in-water time.
