WHAT IS
CORAL SPAWNING?

Once a year, when everything is just right on the reef; a few days after the November full moon, a few lucky divers can witness firsthand, one of the most incredible synchronized natural displays to be seen anywhere in the world. This coral spawning event transforms the ocean at night into a spectacular show, all created by the microscopic corals who over thousands of years, have reproduced in this fashion, slowly building the Great Barrier Reef as we know it today.

  

CORAL SPAWNING ON
THE RIBBON REEFS

With its unrivaled quality of diving and variety of sites to choose from, we have chosen the world-famous Ribbon Reefs as the destination for our 2022 expedition. While we are anticipating fantastic opportunities to see mother nature doing some of her finest work, visiting this part of the Great Barrier Reef offers us the chance to dive some of the most well-known dive sites in the world. Some of the spots we plan on diving are:
