Certified Diving with our Reef Day Trip
Cairns’ warm waters offer excellent conditions to enjoy your diving experience. With more than 1,000 different species of fish, you will be amazed by all the diversity the Great Barrier Reef has to offer. You will probably spot some “Nemos”, some parrotfishes, shy sharks, the friendly Mahori Wrasse called Wally, some turtles and many more creatures.
If you would like to make the most of your experience or if you haven’t been diving for a certain time and don’t feel really confident going with a buddy, ask one of our friendly crew members for a shared guided dive (at extra cost, $15 per person ). It is the best way to see the reef as they know where to take you to see the best spots and wildlife.
During your day trip, you will be able to dive in two different locations on the reef, chosen according to the weather conditions, the visibility,… The reefs are all different to each others; you could be diving in a coral garden once and then diving between coral towers, or along reef’s walls… Be ready to be amazed at all time!
One last important thing, make sure to bring your certification card and your logbook with you, as you will need to show them to our crew.
We have 17 exclusive moorings (not all shown here) on the Outer Great Barrier Reef at Norman, Saxon and Hastings reefs. We use a wide variety of these to ensure a minimal environmental impact to the pristine coral formations we visit.
Our dive sites are frequented by myriads of tropical and Palegic Fish, Rays, Turtles, (friendly) Sharks and the ever popular diver friendly Maori Wrasse. There are swim throughs, wall and drift dives that will appeal to every level of diver experience.
The dive sites are chosen on a daily basis by the vessel Captains for the best variety and visibility according to the weather conditions.
Lunch is a tropical buffet style of cold cuts, salads and fruit. Complimentary tea, coffee and chilled water are available throughout the day.
