1-Day Budget Great Barrier Reef Dive Trip
Deep Sea Divers Den
Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Reef Quest, a 75 foot Catamaran with a maximum of 26 divers and a Dive Staff of 6. It is for 1 day, and allows 2 dives.
Departure is from Marlin Marina, Cairns at 7:30 AM every day, return time 4:30 PM.
This trip is a great value for keen divers, and some of the best diving around,by virtue of the many dive moorings this boat has to choose from.
This dive trip is not just for divers though.
Typically, over half of the 80 passengers are snorkelers. There will be lots of in-water time for snorkelers too, and ample opportunity for them to take one, or even up to three introductory scuba dives.
The boat will visit two different reefs, selecting the best conditions available from sites at Moore, Saxon, Norman, Michaelmas and other reefs. All of these reefs are located on the outer Eastern edge of the reef, where the dive conditions are best.
When the bar opens up on the way home there is time to relax, enjoy a coldie, and relax in the lounge or on the sundeck, a great and social way to end the day.
The Reefquest is one of the new fleet of, fast, and comfortable dive boats operating in Cairns.
The Reefquest cruises at 20 knots, and makes for a quick trip out to the reef. At 23 metres (75 feet in length theres plenty of space; the boat can take up to 60 passengers out to the reef. Amenities like hot showers, ample deck space, and the latest dive equipment make for a very easy and comfortable dive experience.

About Deep Sea Divers Den
Deep Sea Divers Den is one of the oldest, largest, and most experienced dive operations in Cairns. Their dive school is one of the two largest such operations in the world, and this year marks the debut of their newly refurbished facilities, and a new dive boat, the ReefQuest II. Besides running the full range of certification courses in four languages, they also operate three dive boats on a daily basis.
The Divers Den has been in operation since 1975, and the size of their operation allows them to do much of their staff training, boat, and equipment maintenance in house. Someone walked into our office recently who was certified and dove with DSDD in 1982, and while you might barely remember what you were doing in '82, Susan has fond and vivid memories of her dive experience.
