Our Vessels

Good Karma

Our newest addition to the GBR Legacy fleet, Good Karma was purchased thanks to a generous donation from the Karmagawa foundation. Their support, along with the support of many local businesses including BME NQ, Coastal Coverings, Inspired Signs, Port Douglas Marine and Evinrude Australia and Hemingway's Brewery have allowed us to create the perfect vessel to support our research expeditions, providing our team with the ultimate diving, data collection and safety vessel.
