Spirit of Freedom is an elegant air-conditioned vessel, with 12 spacious, en suite cabins, huge dive deck and a comfortable bar.

The vessel boasts a luxury salon equipped with wide screen TV, projector and DVD. Diving is mostly from the dive deck, but there are also two tenders. Even with a full boat (26 guests), everyone can find their own private space, and the electronic stabilisers make her very comfortable even in high seas.

We recommend the seven night itinerary, Cod Hole, Ribbon Reefs and Coral Sea Adventure, which departs Cairns on a Monday. Along the ‘Ribbons’ you will encounter clouds of colourful tropical fish, an incredible variety of vibrant healthy corals, giant clams, anemones, huge schools of cruising pelagics, and a family of giant potato cod. The trip includes two days at Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea. An old volcanic atoll lying 220 km off the coast, Osprey Reef is renowned for its spectacular walls up to 1000 metres deep, its massive soft corals, shark action, and exceptional visibility. ‘North Horn’ is a site where grey reef, silvertips, and the occasional oceanic shark congregate. The dive schedule offers up to 26 dives during the week long adventure.

We recommend that divers hold at least an advanced diving qualification. Nitrox is available.
