Scuba Diving

The scuba diving in Cairns is definately amonst the world's best. With warm clear waters, top quality professionally run dive boats and dive schools and the Great Barrier Reef on our doorstop it would be hard to argue against the fact. From beginners to advanced, there is a Cairns Scuba Diving option to suit everyone.

This page lists all of our Cairns Scuba Diving options, you can use the menu on the left to narrow your search. We've broken them down into Scuba Diving Day Trips, where we list all the one day options to get you diving on the Great Barrier reef. If you'd like to try scuba diving then check out our Introductory Scuba Diving section, no licence or medical exam (for most people) is needed. Another way to experience the magical underwater world is with Helmet Diving / Seawalker, you can even wear your glasses and not even get your hair wet. Maybe try waking up on the reef with one of our Liveaboard Dive Trips, all include meals and a night dive. And for the more serious scuba divers we even have our Expedition Scuba Diving section. These trips go further and are more suitable for advanced/experienced scuba divers. Finally we have a Port Douglas Scuba Diving Options for people staying in Port Douglas. All these Port Douglas options also offer coach transfers from Cairns, allowing you to experience the world famous ribbon reefs north of Port Douglas.
