Great Barrier Reef Evening Dive Trip


Join us for an evening trip to the Great Barrier Reef with two night dives or snorkel sessions!

There’s nothing like the thrill of exploring the underwater world by night – with sharks and other nocturnal hunters prowling about and a host of other interesting marine life on display. With your attention focused on the beam of light provided by your torch, you’ll see the reef in a whole different perspective.

Set off from Cairns in the late afternoon and head for the outer reef, with a thorough briefing along the way. Then discover the thrills of diving after dark with two night dive or snorkel sessions. Fuel up in between dives with a tasty range of refreshments, including:

  • Sausage rolls, meat pies, and feta & spinach pies
  • Spring rolls and samosas
  • Chicken karaage
  • Chorizo & kabana kebabs
  • Devilled buffalo wings
  • Italian meatballs
  • Pumpkin soup and bread rolls
  • Fresh melon platter
  • Tea, coffee and hot chocolate

Dive guides are available but must be pre-booked (see Extras below). If you have no previous night diving experience you must dive with a guide. If you’ve never done a night dive before, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try before you commit to a liveaboard trip.

Experienced night divers can choose to enhance their experience with our exclusive fluoro diving activity (see Extras below). With a special mask filter and torch, the bioluminescent creatures and corals of the reef will be revealed to you. This experience is usually only available on board our overnight vessel OceanQuest – this is your chance to try it out on this one-off evening trip.
