We have a great selection of liveaboard dive trips departing from Cairns weekly, which will still see you diving the spectacular Ribbon reefs and Coral sea. This section of the Reef is pristine & offers some of the very best diving, excellent visibility and larger schools of pelagic marine life.
The Ribbon Reefs lie well to the north of Cairns and are home to many world famous dive sites, including the Cod Hole. Their remote location means they are only accessible on a liveaboard dive trip. Water / dive depth varies anywhere from 8m to 35m, making this a perfect destination for divers of all experience levels, from Open Water to Advanced. The Ribbon Reefs and the liveaboard operators who visit it, offer a range of diving experiences and locations, including drift dives, wall dives, swim throughs, caves and exploring colourful coral gardens and bommies. A consistent factor of diving the Ribbon Reefs will be the absolute wow factor of the reef. A multitude of colourful fish and some amazing marine encounters, from giant (diver-sized) Potato Cod (Cod Hole) to Dwarf Minke Whales (seasonal) to sharks, sea turtles, jellyfish, stingrays and more. The water temperature varies between 22 degrees to 29 degrees and all operators provide wetsuits / lycra suits for certified divers.
Dive depth is only limited by your experience and certification. Water temperature along the Ribbon Reefs and Coral Sea varies between 22 degrees to 29 degrees.
