Our trip was blessed with sunny skies and phenomenal dive conditions for our 4 day trip aboard the gorgeous Spirit of Freedom to Ospray and Ribbon Reef no 3 on the GBR. Our trip started with a stunning small plane flight to Lizard Island where we boarded the boat. The crew were warm, welcoming and knowledgeable and the food was great and most importantly (for a dive trip) very plentiful. The crew were extremely safety conscious, ensuring all passengers were aware of procedures and all divers were vetted for ability and skills (diver experience and qualifications could have been taken onto more consideration here but better to be safe than sorry I suppose). All dives and briefs were carefully planned and executed by the crew to ensure all divers had the absolute best experience possible. Overall a spectacular trip with fantastic people, crew and setting. Couldn't ask for more and will definitely be planning another trip on the Spirit during
Me and my wife went to Australia during the Chinese New Year 2014, and by lucky we found Dive and Cruise and they gave good advice about the liveaboard in Great Barrier Reef. We booked the 3 Days 3 Nights liveaboard on this boat, and the trip even included a Low-level scenic flight from Lizard Island to Cairns. The diving was very good for us (we are new AOW divers): sharks , sea turtles, manta rays , large mejillon , Napoleon, beautiful corals.. Food was very good and always different, and at some place we even can use the free wifi onboard. We were very happy for the trip, very satisfied for the service!
