Cruise Ocean Freedom.
Reef Fleet Terminal, LOT 996 Pier Point Rd, Cairns City QLD 4870, Australia
This is more like an airport terminal for check in. Our choice of was Ocean Freedom. Not by any means the biggest vessel on the pier but can still take 75 people.
As it turned out the boat was full but it did not seem like 75 people.
A very well run and fun crew. Well worth the money. The food was indeed great as most of the reviews indicated. On the way back we were served fruit and then cheese and crackers and then cake. 🤪🤪🤪
While there are a lot of comments about the reef dying which appears to be true in places, you can easily see where it is growing back. The first site was a little deep in the best spots for fish and coral. The shallow sections show some effect of coral bleaching in particular.
The second dive spot was much shallower and the tide had dropped more by then. The coral was not as dense however the fish here were better and more dense. Probably saw more here because it was shallower!
The only thing I missed out on was the shark. Aidyn did get to see it. Lucky Aidyn. 🦈🦈🦈
