Description

The sailing liveaboard Coral Sea Dreaming liveaboard meets any budget while exploring the Cairn’s extensive coral gardens, unveiling an abundance of marine life

Suitable for all Divers and Snorkelers, the intimate Coral Sea Dreaming liveaboard is your personal Dive and Sail tour to the best diving in the Great Barrier Reef. Traveling to the Outer Reef, guests will be transported in comfort on this unique sailing vessel. Dive depths will range from 5 to 28 meters and Divers and Snorkelers will experience vibrant Coral Gardens, amazing biodiversity including Turtles, small Reef Sharks and Schools of Pelagics. If there is good wind, the boat will also set its sails for locomotion.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

The 52 foot (16 meter) liveaboard sailing vessel Coral Sea Dreaming is a unique yacht, designed to traverse the Great Barrier Reef in all kinds of weather. Her custom features provide comfort and convenience for diving and snorkeling on her 2 day/1 night excursions. The Coral Sea Dreaming’s 3 English speaking crew offer personalized attention. 12 passengers are accommodated in air conditioned private cabins which include single bunks, and a quad share. The intimate environment of the boat requires guests to bring the minimum as storage space is limited. Guests are asked to bring an overnight pack on-board. Luggage can be stored at the office. The boat is equipped with 2 toilets, a separate hot water shower as well as a fresh water shower on the stern of the boat.

Between dives on this amazing dive safari aboard Coral Sea Dreaming, guests will relax and enjoy the breathtaking Australian vistas. Guests enjoy unlimited water time as they can snorkel right off the boat. Take a nap on the shaded sun deck, being gently rocked by the ocean waves, or work on your tan in the abundant sunshine.

Great food is standard aboard Coral Sea Dreaming. A well supplied galley will provide guests with three hearty meals a day served in the ship’s comfortable dining area. Chat about the day’s sightings as you sit down and enjoy a delicious buffet. Beer, wine and softs drinks are available on board to purchase.
