The Great Barrier Reef is one of the best places on earth for snorkeling and scuba diving. This tour offers options for all ages and abilities, making it ideal for groups or families who don’t want to all do the same thing. Cruise out to the Outer Reefs, where you can choose to snorkel, take an introductory scuba dive, or enjoy up to three certified dives.
What to Expect
Make your way to the marina in Cairns to meet your guide and board the high-speed custom-built boat. Admire the views from deck and enjoy morning tea as you sail across the Coral Sea to explore the more remote Outer Reefs.

During the tour, visit three different dive sites where—depending on the tour option selected—you can swim and snorkel amid the vibrant coral gardens, try an introductory scuba dive accompanied by an expert instructor, or explore some of the deeper deep spots (certified divers only).

Along the way, look out for tropical fish, marine life, and colourful coral formations, and learn more about the UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef and its unique ecosystems from the crew. In between, relax on deck and take in the scenery as you tuck into a delicious buffet lunch.

Afternoon tea is also served on-board as you sail back to Cairns.

Great diving experience

I spent two days diving with the Tusa and highly recommend them. I typically prefer a smaller dive boat, but that isn't really an option on the GBR. The crew is very organized and I never felt like I was having to climb over other...More

There were about 25 on our trip but room for a lot more. We were, apparently, just out of season. The crew coped very well and, I rethink, could cope with a full load and give value for money. I suggest you have a look at... More
