The best way to see the Great Barrier Reef is to sleep on it; being able to dive in the evening for night dives and early morning dives which you cannot do on a day trip is just sensational!
This liveaboard takes in 2 full days of diving on the outer Great Barrier Reef, regular reefs visited include Lodestone Reef, Keeper Reef, Broadhurst Reef, Davies Reef and Wheeler Reef. Sites chosen will be at the skippers discretion and will depend on the weather.
