They have 16 exclusive dive sites on 4 different outer reef locations and they visit a selection of these sites on every trip. These sites have been selected for their variety and quality of both coral and marine life as well as great visibility. You will rarely dive the same site more than twice.
The 3 premium, purpose built, multi million dollar dive vessels provide the ideal way to stay out and experience what the reef has to offer. These vessels are 25 metres (80 feet) in length and feature 14 twin share and 2 double cabins with private amenities for every 2 cabins. The vessels are centrally air-conditioned, light and airy. There are 2 large decks, one for gear and one strictly for sun tanning and relaxing. These vessels are the only purpose built outer reef liveaboards operating in the area.
This trip departs every day of the week except Tuesday, with German speaking staff onboard on the Sunday and Thursday departures. Japanese speaking staff are available on Saturday departures.
Night Before Departure

As an option, you may wish to learn about the reef and fish you will meet by visiting 'Reef Teach' - a 2.5hr marine biology presentation (additional cost).
