Please note that the provided illustration serves as a rough guide for the expedition route. Our primary focus will be on exploring the vast Helen Reef Reserve, spanning 163 square kilometres, offering ample opportunities for discovery. However, the schedule itself remains flexible due to external factors. It is crucial to understand that our plans are subject to weather conditions, particularly for sites located just North of Helen Reef, which require excellent conditions due to their exposed nature. Therefore, we must maintain flexibility in our itinerary. For instance, we may embark on a day of diving near Merir before returning to Helen Reef.
