Great Barrier Reef Liveaboards
Liveaboards are a popular choice for more avid divers who want to maximise their time in the water and see various dive sites. However, they are also an excellent option for new divers wishing to gain more experience or do an open scuba diving course.
Larger boats offer more comfort.
Consider the larger boat operators like floating hotels with large plush rooms, comfy beds, en-suite bathrooms and gourmet chef-prepared meals.
Whilst other smaller boats can only offer bunks, shared bathrooms and basic meals.
Great Barrier Reef Liveaboards offer a range of different courses so that you can expand your skills whilst you are out there.
While you are on board, get that next certification; Advanced or Rescue scuba diver or maybe try your fins on Enriched air Nitrox.
There’s always room for progression, and you can explore those options onboard or book the course in advance. Liveaboards are generally very flexible.
Like their day tour counterparts, most liveaboards will have onboard photographers and offer rental cameras. It’s always an excellent idea to check ahead. After all, you don’t want to get out there and be camera-less!
Great Barrier Reef liveaboards offer night diving which is an option no day boat can offer. Night diving is always an exciting dive.
While you are on your dive, checking out the reef with a torch. This dive is the best time to see sharks, and you will often see several.
