The Spirit of Freedom provided just that – ultimate freedom and enjoyment. We took the Coral Sea and Ribbon Reefs tour in the month of August and were certainly impressed.

The crew were amazing – they had so much experience in this area and so were very knowledgeable and helpful. They also found us some fantastic critters to photograph.

The coral was impressively vibrant at most of the sites we visited such as Snake Pit, and I would highly recommend others to make use of the Spirit of Freedom for your next diving trip in this region of Australia.

I finally got the chance to dive the famous Cod Hole, and I was not disappointed. The diving was very well-organised on board and it was great to be assisted by so many helpful crew members who could not do enough for you.

The food was also very tasty, and there was plenty of it, so it was great to know that after a full day of exploring underwater you were coming home to a plentiful dinner.
