The Dive

This trip combines a great day out on the Great Barrier Reef with a scenic flight home. This is a full day trip, visiting two different reefs, which gives you enough time to snorkel and try scuba diving (at an extra cost). © Down Under Dive Snorkelers will have lots of time to spend in the water, and a semi-submersible boat (payable on the boat) which gives you a closer look at the reef without getting wet. Evolution takes up to 120 passengers out to the reef, typically a fourth of the folks on board are divers, the rest snorkelers.

At the end of the day you will meet up with Nautilus Aviation on the floating helicopter pad on the reef, and from there you will take to the skies to admire the Great Barrier Reef before heading back to Cairns.
