On the trip aboard the Spirit of 1770 to the reef, certified divers are catered for with an amazing outer wall dive. These dives are best done as drift dives which adds to the ease of the dive, divers just cruise along the reef wall with the current which helps to create a relaxed effortless dive. Along the way you are likely to see turtles, reef sharks, moray eels, huge cod and wrasse and there is always a good chance of seeing the majestic manta rays. The manta rays are a highlight to any dive as they gracefully glide past, in no hurry what so ever. As well as this there is a vast array of colourful reef fish to fascinate the divers and it is also common for passing schools of pelagic fish such as trevally, mackerel and tuna to cruise on by. The dive depth is 18 metres with dive leaders leading all the dives and the friendly dive crew is there to assist the divers to have a great days diving.
The second dive of the day is done in Lady Musgrave Islands pristine lagoon and starts with a fish feed which always attracts masses of hungry locals ready to snap up a free feed. From there an underwater tour is done around some of the beautiful coral bommies in the lagoon. The dive guides know all the secret hiding places for the resting turtles and can usually point out a number of them on any dive.
