Airlie Beach, Whitsundays, Australia
Airlie Beach diving liveaboard New Horizon visits Whitsundays scuba diving sites for scuba diving, snorkelling and other fun activities. New Horizon is a boat for younger guests. The vessel is included in our website because the cruise offers the opportunity for one certified or introductory dive at a suitable Whitsunday Islands dive site accompanied by a qualified scuba diving instructor. If you are a serious diver hoping for a number of dives New Horizon is probably not the cruise for you.
This Airlie Beach dive trip departs from Abell Point Marina three times per week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 2:00 pm for a 2 day/2 night liveaboard cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. Scuba diving is an optional extra. See our full Australia Liveaboard Dive Trips selection here and see Getting to Airlie Beach for transport tips.
