Blue Dive of­fer Reef at night

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

FOR keen scuba divers a whole new ex­pe­ri­ence has hit the waters of the re­gion.

Blue Dive Port Dou­glas is now of­fer­ing overnight scuba div­ing adventures on the Great Bar­rier Reef.

Th­ese mini-dive live-aboards, great for thrillseek­ing divers, will in­clude night and sun­rise dives, giv­ing an op­por­tu­nity to see the reefs like never be­fore.

The boat, Blue Dive- Reef Con­nec­tions, com­fort­ably sleeps eight and there will be a qual­i­fied chef on­board along­side the skip­per Bren­don. One of the ex­pe­ri­enced Blue Dive team will guide the dive trips.

The reef takes on a whole new com­plex­ion at night with day crea­tures try­ing to find safe rest­ing places and noc­tur­nal preda­tors com­ing out of their day­time rest­ing holes to search for food – a shift change that is truly fas­ci­nat­ing to watch.

Co-owner Mark Fraenkel said he is ex­cited about the new op­er­a­tions.
