    Question Cairns Liveaboards ?????

    I am looking at taking a trip to the GBR and looking for some reviews on live aboards. I have been looking around the the net but also looking for personal reviews. I have been looking at Great Barrier Reef - Reeftrip.com mainly as they are one of the only ones I have found that do a 2 day/1night trip.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Gavin
    There is a big difference in where you dive the Reef, usually the further out the better, unluckily the good ones take more than 1 night but are worth it to avoid disappointment. Try 3 Nights - Fly Dive Cod Hole | Dive Cod Hole Great Barrier Reef
    Any dive you survive is a good dive

    For local opinion, try an enquiry on www.diveoz.com.au - The Biggest Site for Australian Scuba Diving Info

    The forum there is probably the biggest in Oz and you should get more response.
    Cheers, TD.

    Cairns dive centre and Deep Sea Divers Den also both do 2d/1n trips. I've stayed on all 3 and think Divers Den's new liveaboard is by far the best. What sites you get to are all weather dependent and either of the 3 companies on their day could be at the best site. Fly/dive codhole is not worth the $$ unless you do the coral sea trip...even then I would look at the operators that dive their way back to Cairns rather than get on an overloaded 35 year old Cessna IMHO
