Commissioned in 2004, MV Monsoon is a 54 ft classically modern styled custom built vessel in survey. She is built for comfort both on the sea, and on board, featuring the latest in marine design along with exceptional quality in her fittings.MV Monsoon cruises contentedly at 15 knots, and can take you to the best snorkelling, diving & fishing destinations comfortably within your day charter.
Located in Australia’s northern Great Barrier Reef, MV Monsoon is the ultimate choice for those seeking a spectacular, private, reef, experience. Monsoon can comfortably accommodate a maximum of 12 guests in a choice of spacious areas. Experienced crew pampers your guests with friendly service and delicious tastings while exploring the fishing sites, the warm tropical reef waters and isolated sand cays.
A typical day on Monsoon would see us depart for the outer reef at approximately 8:15am. Guests can relax on the fly bridge or front deck for the 1.5 hour journey until we reach our first snorkel site; Horseshoe Reef. After a few hours of snorkeling guests enjoy a delicious lunch before heading out to deeper waters to catch some big, beautiful, pelagic, fish. Of course, if clients are more inclined to fishing, or snorkeling, we can spend the day doing only what they desire. Diving is also an option at an additional cost. We work with the most experienced dive instructors who leave our guests in absolute awe of the underwater world.
If many children or elderly people are on board, or weather is a little rough and guests would like to spend the day exploring Low Isles this is also an option.
