Certified Diving

Whether you are newly certified, need a refresher or very experienced, our dive sites are legendary. We travel to the best outer Great Barrier Reef sites and our staff will ensure that we show you all the fun stuff at a level you feel comfortable with. Our SCUBAPRO dive gear is state-of-the–art, plus, where we dive, there are no crowds. Flexible diving options mean you can dive with or without a guide in truly spectacular settings.

Every mooring we visit is a diver’s delight. With 30 moorings on 9 of the best outer Great Barrier Reef systems we can offer the certified diver amazing variety. Our dive sites rival the best in Cairns but we sail without the crowds. Scuba dive on pristine reefs that include

  • Flynn
  • Milln
  • Thetford
  • Moore
  • Hastings
  • Norman Reefs, all world famous for their natural beauty.

    Whether you are newly certified or have lots of experience, our sites offer something special for everyone. Imagine diving with green and loggerhead turtles, oceanic and residential reef sharks, barracuda and other pelagic fish in depths ranging from 6 to 36 meters. Outer Reef water visibility is rarely less than 20 meters and is frequently 30 meters or more and our world class sites feature swim-throughs, caves, drift dives, pinnacles, and vast coral gardens.

    On board we have a Bauer Mariner 3200 compressor to ensure regular tank fills and quality SCUBAPRO dive gear. You can choose to dive with a guide or set out with your partner or friends on your own adventure. We give you a thorough briefing at every site.

    Night and morning dives are our specialty. On Coral Sea Dreaming we have a number of anchorages which are perfect for night and early morning dives. Large coral bommies, close to the reefs edge provide an excellent environment to find sleeping turtles, parrot fish, and nocturnal wildlife. Early morning dives are also spectacular. This is feeding time for many of the pelagic fish and a great time to see them cruising. Generally, you’ll also find large shoals of schooling fish close to the coral as they feed on the remnants of night time plankton. Breakfast follows the morning dive, and nothing beats a hot coffee after a 6 am dive!

    Please note: All certified divers require a valid “C” card. Queensland law also requires all divers to fill out a medical form
