The Vessel

Coral Sea Dreaming is a strongly built 16 metre steel yacht, uniquely designed to travel to the Great Barrier Reef in all kinds of weather. Her rugged build provides a safe platform to sail, dive and snorkel. She carries all the latest navigational aids. CSD sleeps 12 passengers and 3 crew in bunk-style accommodation.


Sleeping options available including private cabins, single bunks, and a quad share. Please note that sleeping arrangements are fairly basic due to the boats size, and do not include storage space. Thus passengers are asked to bring only an overnight pack on-board. Backpacks and suitcases can be stored in our office. The vessel is in current 2B survey with a 200 mile offshore range.

A large rear cockpit, where passengers eat meals, mix and mingle, and forward dive deck provide plenty of room for passengers to spread out and relax. The boat is equipped with SCUBAPRO and AQUALUNG dive gear (including computers) and a Bauer 3200 diver compressor to fill tanks while at sea. All snorkelling gear and wetsuits are provided.

The boat is equipped with 2 toilets and a separate hot water shower. An additional fresh water shower is also located at the rear of the boat. A well-equipped galley ensures awesome food and plenty of it.
