Enjoy a personalised cruise on our luxurious motor catamaran to go scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. Discover the most famous reef in the world and revel in the beauty of its colourful corals and its bustling marine wildlife. Join us for an all-around splendid day out at sea and tick scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef off your bucket list!

Dive Area
Our Certified Scuba Diving at the Great Barrier Reef takes place at two locations at Upolu Reef which lies approximately 30km northeast of Cairns and which forms part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The first location is at the so-called 'Wonder Wall' on the outer edge of the reef, where you can explore a 10 to 13m deep reef wall full of colourful corals, home to all sorts of different kinds of fish and other animals. The second location is at the Upolu Reef Cay which is surrounded by shallow turquoise waters that make for an ideal place to go scuba diving due to its amazing visibilities and unique wildlife.

Check-in at our desk at the Reef Fleet Terminal from 7:15 am. Boarding starts at 7:30 am for an 08:00am departure. We will then head out towards Upolu Reef on a 1h boat trip with our luxurious 20m motor catamaran. On our way to our first mooring location, you will gear up while one of our instructors talks you through the specific dive site.

As soon as we reach the site, you'll hop in the water alongside your buddy and start your 30-minute adventure that is scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. Once you've completed your first dive, you'll be able to spend the rest of the time moored here to either go snorkeling, swimming or to relax on deck. Later, we will cruise to the second mooring location of the day at Upolu Reef Cay, during which time you can enjoy a delicious smorgasbord lunch on board. Once at the cay, you will then complete your second dive of the day with more time to relax and enjoy the paradiasical setting afterwards, before we head back to Cairns.
