  1. Gina Moody

    I had a great time on SOF from Cairns up to Lizard Island. Even though the weather was not favourable and we were unable to dive on their normal divesites, the crew went above and beyond to set up temp moorings on ‘newly discovered’ divesites which still turned out to be great diving! The boat itself is well set up and the beds are comfy! Don’t worry about going hungry.. the food onboard is amazing!

    Just returned from the 7 day tour with this lovely ship. A professional, capable and friendly team offering help when you need it and do everything possible to act in everyones best interest.
    The minke whales (plural) paid us a visit, the big cod hung around and out at opsrey reef we had sharks galore including hammerheads and silvertips combined with beautiful coral walls and the usual reef live.
    Food is plenty and well prepared. You are in very good hands with this boat.
