Your Diving Escapade:

To ensure everyone gets to experience diving in the Great Barrier Reef, our team cater to all levels of diving – whether you are a skilled diver or a first-timer – our experienced dive instructors have designed experiences appropriate for a variety of skill levels. For our certified divers, smaller guided tours for 4-6 people are available while children aged 10+ are welcome to participate in our introductory experience, Discover Scuba Diving.

During your diving tour you will have the opportunity to dive in two breathtaking locations along the reef, both hand-picked to showcase the most stunning underwater scenes the Whitsunday Islands’ has to offer.

Certified Divers

For certified divers, the group will be escorted by a guide – there are usually no more than 4-6 people to ensure that each guest gets the most of their dive on the Great Barrier Reef. This experience caters to all levels of divers, and there is an opportunity for you to dive at two handpicked locations on the Great Barrier Reef. Please note both locations will be advised on the day and do depend on weather, crowds and season.
