We’re back, with snorkel trips operating every weekend, plus extra dates added according to demand!

Experience an unforgettable Great Barrier Reef snorkel day trip from Cairns with the local experts, Divers Den.

Snorkelling is the easiest way to see the incredibly colourful and diverse underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. All equipment is provided and our friendly, experienced guides will show you how to use it.

Your trip out to the reef will take just 90 minutes, with five hours spent on the outer reef. We’ll select two of the best Great Barrier Reef snorkelling sites according to the day’s conditions. Our amazing sites include spots along the diverse, species-rich Norman, Saxon and Hastings Reefs.

With myriads of tropical fish, pristine coral formations, turtles and “nemos”, you’ll be blown away by the spectacle that is the Great Barrier Reef.

AquaQuest is purpose-built for snorkelling, with state of the art equipment. If you decide you’d like to try an introductory dive during your trip, our expert team is on hand to guide you through this amazing experience.
