Liveaboards in Australia offer the opportunity to dive the Great Barrier Reef as well as remote destinations in the Indian Ocean, spotting whales, dolphins and whale sharks along the way.
Australia is home to the largest barrier reef in the world, a place which is known for its natural beauty. In fact, the Great Barrier Reef stretches for over 1240 miles (2000 km) and is home to 1500 species of fish. Legions of divers make the pilgrimage to experience the Reef and the optimal way to see the best dive sites on the Reef is by liveaboard. But Australia is a big country and the Great Barrier Reef isn’t the only amazing dive spot. Rowley Shoals is a fantastic place for reef and shark diving from a liveaboard. Depending on where you go liveaboard itineraries in Australia last from 1 to 7 nights, and the best time to dive in Australia is from August to December.
