About the Cruise
This 400 mile action packed adventure includes the remote Coral Sea atolls of Holmes & Flinders plus the amazing Yongala Wreck.
Holmes Atoll. (1st day ) Overnight, cruise 120 miles east to the deep clear Coral Sea shark territory. At ‘Amazing’ descend from Spoilsport to a ‘fishbowl’ of shallow white sand with a myriad of marine life. The shark dive attracts dozens of grey reef sharks and silver tips. Spiral around the spectacular ‘Nonki’ pinnacle thrusting up from 35m.
Flinders Atoll Overnight 70 miles south to Flinders atoll. Enjoy spectacular drift dives on walls adorned in sea fans & soft corals that plummet 300m. Photograph the Gigantus Gorgonus, the world’s largest gorgonian fan. Mingle with sharks, tuna & barracuda in 40m visibility. Observe nesting sea birds and turtles (Oct- Mar). 3 days, can include: Cod Wall, Rock Arch, Fan Fare.
Yongala Wreck Descend to Australia’s best big animal, historic shipwreck. Level out at 15m before descending under the bow at 30m. The throngs of marine life are oblivious to your approach. 200 kg gropers, 2m shovelnose rays and bull sharks can be seen here. Foraging turtles & venomous sea snakes ignore your approach. Enjoy an amazing night dive with huge bull rays hovering over the wreck.
Get Spoilt! Spoilsport is Australia’s most awarded liveaboard. Enjoy sumptuous cuisine and a superb combination of diver conveniences, space and stability.
