Liveaboards provide scuba facilities and living accommodations for divers. The boat becomes your home, and you eat, sleep and dive on it! Liveaboards stay at sea for the duration of the tour and therefore can explore more remote sites. This type of diving opens up a whole new world of top-class scuba vacations that would not be available on regular day trip boats.

Group trips are a lot of fun but the timing is set so they do not suit everyone. Some dive holidays are too remote destinations and there is nothing better than having your own tour guide there with you sorting out any issues along the way. When travelling as a group the operator will do a little extra to please the group like throwing in shore dives or a new year beach bbq. Divers like hanging with other divers, sharing their photos and learning from each other. Abyss group departures are all run under the guidance of an experienced instructor, so you will have plenty of help in and out of the water
The problem is that some times the date or locations do not suit you. So there is always an option to get expert dive travel to advise and book a trip to a different destination or on a different schedule to our group trips.

Dive, eat, dive, eat, sleep dive... if this is your kind of a trip go the liveaboard options. You do not have to do that many dives but they are available for you to do and super easy as no caring your gear or long swims, just jumping off the back of the boat. They do look a little more expensive but generally when you work out the number of dives you are getting and add the cost of the food they do work out to be great value for money. They allow for getting into a more remote location in the middle of nowhere.

While the liveaboard options are great some divers just do not want to be stuck on a boat or even dive every day. If this is the case then go for a land-based operation. You can save a bit of money by reducing the dives number on your trip and see a bit more of the destinations above the water.

The Great Barrier Reef is blessed with the breathtaking beauty of the world’s largest coral reef. The reef contains an abundance of marine life and comprises of over 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays and hundreds of picturesque tropical islands with some of the worlds most beautiful sun-soaked, golden beaches. Because of its natural beauty, the Great Barrier Reef has become one of the worlds most sought after tourist destinations.

The Great Barrier Reef remains a vibrant, beautiful ecosystem of immense value to Australians and the world and continues to attract millions of visitors each year. However, like other coral reefs globally, the Reef is under pressure from climate change and other threats.

To get the best diving on the reef, it is recommended to go out on a liveaboard and dive in areas which have not been damaged by a large number of divers on the day boat,
