- While we always try to do some sailing, due to the prevailing South Easterly winds, this usually occurs on the return part of the trip.

Can I Snorkel?
This tour is perfect for snorkelers who are confident swimmers. The ketch visits several outer Great Barrier Reef sites and moors very close to the reef, meaning it’s only a small swim to the reef and its amazing coral gardens. That being said, it is open water swimming and water depth varies from a few metres (when you over the corals) to up to 36m. Snorkel site briefings are provided and flotation vests are also provided if you would prefer.
All snorkelling equipment (mask, fins and snorkel) are included as are wetsuits / lycra suits. Prescription masks are available with 24 hours notice. There is also the option to try introductory diving (no experience necessary) while on board. Added bonus: get to see the sun set and rise over the Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef, it’s simply stunning!
Can I dive?
This tour offers a choice of certified diving and introductory diving. Certified divers can choose between guided and unguided dives. Divers have the chance to take up to four (4) day dives and one (1) night dive during this 2 day / 1 night trip, which visits several reef locations and dive sites. All equipment and dive briefings are included in the dive price.
INTRODUCTORY DIVING: This is a great opportunity to try scuba diving for the first time (no experience necessary). To try an introductory dive you will need to be at least 12 years old and pass a dive medical on board the boat. All equipment and briefings are provided and included in the cost, as is a dive guide. Coral Sea Dreaming is also one of the very few boats to be licensed by Scuba Schools International to offer introductory night dives! To participate in one of these, you will have to have done an introductory day dive first (on board Coral Sea Dreaming).
CERTIFIED DIVING: This trip is suitable for certified divers of all experience levels. Coral Sea Dreaming is licensed to visit 21 exclusive moorings at 9 different reef systems. You have the chance to do up to four (4) day dives and one (1) night dive. Choose between guided or unguided diving, but there is no solo diving. If you are not travelling with a dive buddy, this is no problem; you will be paired up with another diver on board. Equipment and dive site briefings (and guides if you choose) are all included in the dive price.
Dive site depth varies anywhere from 6 – 36m. Certified divers can dive to the maximum depth of their experience and certification and will be required to show evidence of their certification: through current dive licenses and log book.
