Diving Details

Spirit of Freedom will impress with its dive crew, service and locations. As mentioned this trip to the Coral Sea is suitable for Advanced certified divers only. There’s the option to extend your diving qualifications with an on-board course (i.e. Advanced / Nitrox Course).  Coral Sea dive depth is limited only by your air consumption and experience levels. The ocean floor drops away to 1,000m and some dive sites don’t start until 20m below the surface. Dive conditions can sometimes be challenging in the Coral Sea, with strong currents. Visibility is amazing, often over 50m. Certified divers must dive in buddy pairs. Bring your own or have one allocated to you. There is no solo diving. You will need to bring your dive certification card.
