The Australia Liveaboard industry, in fact the entire Scuba diving industry, is very strong. Divers come from around the world to enjoy diving the coast of Australia. Liveaboards can provide the diver access to remote dive sites that might not be available other wise. There are many choices when it comes to Australian Liveaboards or for that matter Liveaboards anywhere. Our goal is to give you the information that you need to make an informed decision.

Why An Australian Liveaboard

Deciding where to take a vacation is always a process that has many factors to consider. Location budget and time available are some of the first point that need to be established. The location must be able to provide the activities that you wish to enjoy. If you are a scuba diver, or wanting to learn to dive there are few places in the world that can match Australia’s variety and quality of dive sites and marine life.

When considering a dive vacation the concept of a Liveaboard may come to mind. A Liveaboard vacation may be an outstanding option for a diver, even if the diver is traveling with a non-diver. Australian Liveaboards are often very attractive to non-divers as well. Additionally, Many of the local diving Liveaboards are available for short duration cruises. The MV Reef Encounter has a program they refer to as the “Reef Sleep”. This program offers the opportunity to stay as many nights as you wish, even if it is just one night.

Selecting The Right Liveaboard

Like selecting anything in life, what is right for you may not be right for someone else. It is best to look at many options then list what is important for you and who ever is traveling with you. Here are a few items that you should consider:

•Location, The Great Barrier Reef Australia stretches over 23,000 kilometers and is the size of Germany. That is too far for a Liveaboard to cover the Ribbon Reefs in the North to even the SS Yongala and the Whitsundays and they are near the middle of the reef.  Ningaloo Reef is on the western coast, three time zones away.

•Duration: how many days would you like to be aboard. Some vessels have fixed schedules while others are designed to allow you to join at any time.

•On-board accommodations and comfort some of the Liveaboard are very basic. Some of the boats in the Whitsundays are small sailboats that only have space for a four or five guest at a time. On these facilities are very limited and it is even possible that there are no dive professionals on-board. Others can extend up to 35 meters the largest size that can be operated within the Great Barrier Reef park. On these you may find all the luxury and facilities of a mega-yacht.

•Skill level: A few Liveaboards such as those going to the Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea are for experienced divers.

•Training; if you wish to extend your training and take additional classes many Liveaboards are able to provide training from resort dives all the way to instructor qualifications.

•Service and reputations: Do not be afraid to check out websites like tripadviser to see what previous guest had to say.
