SPEARFISH THE GREAT BARRIER REEF ABOARD M.V. Phoenix
Just like real-estate Location, Location, Location is the key to the success of M.V. Phoenix in helping obtain world records and Australian Records, but we can’t take all the credit. The far northern Barrier reef and Coral Sea provide the best fishing grounds in the world. The rest is down to the diver.
We understand the heavy demands of the spear fishing world. We provide tenders and safety vessels for spear-fishing. Our tenders’ suit divers and our equipment racks on Phoenix make storage of the mounds of equipment a breeze.
