What to Expect
Travel reference:

Dive or snorkel the Great Barrier Reef with the experts!

With more than 30 years experience, a choice of 16 outer reef locations, modern comfortable vessels, and a friendly professional team to look after you, you are in for an exceptional Great Barrier Reef adventure with Tusa Dive. Tusa specialise in Cairns Great Barrier Reef experiences, catering to swimmers and snorkellers, those wanting to try an introductory dive (no experience necessary) and certified scuba divers of all experience levels.

Picture yourself snorkelling over magical reef gardens where the coral is pristine and the water is stunningly clear! You'll be provided with top diver quality masks and snorkels, booties and fins. Wetsuits or lycra suits (depending on the season) are provided for all, and for those who like a little extra buoyancy in the water, the snorkel vests will help keep you safely above the coral.

You can also choose 1 or 2 introductory dives for a whole new perspective of the reef. No prior diving experience is necessary with full tuition undertaken on board to get you ready for your first dive. After your briefing and once at the reef, you will be diving right off the back of the boat, at the same sites as the certified divers, to a maximum of 12 metres'depth. You will have the most experienced instructors by your side, and a maximum of three other 'intro' divers with you.

If you have a diving certification, you will have the option of taking up to three dives at the two sites you visit. Each of your dives will be unique, allowing you to explore vast coral gardens, caverns, walls and isolated pinnacles, while amazing you with the sheer diversity and colour of marine life. You'll have the freedom to dive with your buddy or join a guided dive with one of the divemasters. Top quality scuba equipment, including dive computers, and dive quality masks, booties and fins are provided on board!
