We made three separate trips out to the Barrier Reef:

  • Trip 2: Aboard MY Super Sport; from Port Douglas. We dived the Ribbon Reefs and the Cod Hole.

  • Trip 3: Aboard MY Water Sport, from Townsville. We dived the wreck of the SS Yongala.

Trips 2 & 3 were with Mike Ball Aussie Adventures.

Besides the diving we made various excusions into the North Queensland rainforest which included white water rafting and hot air balooning.
