Certified SCUBA Diving
Snorkelling is the easiest way to discover the Great Barrier Reef, it is as simple as breathing. If you have never snorkelled before, don't worry, a briefing is held on board, explaining how to put and use the snorkelling gear. All of the snorkelling equipment you will require is supplied as part of your trip, including a wetsuit or stinger suit. Prescription masks are also available upon request.
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. 'Nemos', Parrotfish, shy Sharks, a friendly Mahori Wrasse called Wally, Turtles, and many more creatures. If you don't feel confident exploring 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 we know where the best bits hide!
Introductory diving requires no previous SCUBA experience. If you can swim, you can usually dive. On the journey to the Great Barrier Reef you will be given a thorough briefing outlining everything involved. Covering all the procedures that will make your experience a safe and unforgettable one (diving skills, communication under water, marine life behaviour, etc). Once at the reef, you will begin by practicing with your equipment on the surface. Once comfortable, we repeat the skills only a few feet below the surface. Finally when comfortable, it's time to dive!
