SeaQuest Snorkelling


Go snorkelling on a budget Great Barrier Reef day trip from Cairns with Divers Den. Snorkelling is the easiest way to see the incredibly colourful and diverse underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef.

On board our vessel SeaQuest, all equipment is provided and our friendly, experienced guides will show you how to use it during your affordable Great Barrier Reef snorkelling day trip. You’ll be transported from Cairns to the outer Reef where you and your family can snorkel safely and enjoyably at some of the most incredible reef sites, where the waters are warm and clear.

We visit Norman and Saxon Reefs – glimpse colourful coral thickets, turtles and more – and Hastings Reef, where you can get up close to colourful butterfly and angel fish, as well as other amazing species!

With Divers Den, you’ll enjoy the comfort of our modern vessel. Relax on deck or in our comfortable lounge area, and enjoy a tasty lunch during your cruise.

“The staff were insightful, fun, excited and really engaged with the passengers. We felt really equipped, learned a lot and had a 10/10 day. Spot on locations for the snorkelling – I have been on other snorkel trips and this was by far the best.”
