I'd recommend doing Coral Sea Trip over GBR (really you get to do both on Coral Sea trip).

I actually enjoyed the Elizabeth E over SpoilSport (did EE in 2001 and SS in 2005). Mike Ball is more commercial (sharks, more GBR, less Coral Sea). EE we hit more Coral Sea spots (Flinders, Abbington, Diamond Is. etc.) Of course, the bleaching that happened in 2001/2002 may be the main reason Mike Ball doesn't visit more spots. We had two GREAT days on the Yongola on SpoilSport, but I don't know if that is on the itenerary since the boat moved from Townsville down to Cairns.
