Tour Description

If you’re stoked on scuba diving then there are few dive sites in Australia that beat the experience of diving the famous Cod Hole and Ribbon Reefs.

Jump aboard this 3 day, 3 nights dive adventure with Spirit of Freedom to make the most of this incredible set of dive sites and get up close and personal with some of amazing marine life that call this part of the ocean home.

With up to 11 dives (inc 1 night dive) across dives sites which include Number 9 and Number 10 (the most northern of the Ribbon Reefs) Wonder-wall, Pixie Pinnacle, Challenger Bay, Two Towers, Lighthouse Bommie, and the Snake Pit amongst others you’ll experience a variety of dive sites and of course marine life.

For many though the diving highlight is at the famous Cod Hole – which is home to a family of massive, and super friendly potato cod – so make sure you have your GoPro handy for that one!

With 4-5 dives per day (weather and conditions permitting) you’ll clock up plenty of time underwater, but your time on the boat will be well spent too. With sunset BBQs on the deck on board one of Australias biggest and most comfortable dive boats.

Your final day sees you saying goodbye to the Spirit of Freedom after breakfast when you’ll head to shore at Lizard Island. Here you’ll enjoy a guided walk before hopping on a low altitude scenic flight back to Cairns – an hour long ride which will take in some amazing aerial views across the reefs and Aussie Coastline.

The perfect end to an amazing dive trip!
