Hi, my husband and I are planning to be certified in scuba diving this spring and want to find a boat trip with a guide to help the newly certified in the Whitsundays in October. We have plans to go on the Spirit of Freedom out of Cairns later in the month, but would like to get a few dives under our belts prior to that. We had thought to go to Reef Sleep plus a day trip on either Reefjet or Seaflight (these found just by searching the internet, not by any recommendations, so please comment if you have one. However, a 3 day trip is very appealing, but I can't find a boat that doesn't seem like a huge party boat! We are 50-something and after diving all day, won't want to party, plus if it is overnight, we'd like a comfortable bed and private toilet, if possible. I also get sort of seasick so don't know if a sail boat would be the best thing--any thoughts on that? If there are any boats that come to mind, we would greatly appreciate your help! Thanks so much!
