Cairns Dive Centre
Book This Trip
This trip is aboard M.V. Sun-Kist, a 60 foot Mono Hull with a maximum of 40 divers and a Dive Staff of 4. It is for 1 day, and allows 2 dives.
Departure is from B Finger, Marlin Marina, Cairns at 7:30 AM every day, return time 4:30 PM.
This is a very low-cost trip, and a good match for budget travellers. The day starts with a quick jaunt out to Fitzroy Island, to pick up divers and drop off daytrippers visiting the island.
After that the boat heads out to meet up and spend the day alongside Ciarns Dive Centre's liveaboard boat Kangaroo Explorer. Where you'll spend the day enjoying the reef.
The exact dive site you visit is a bit of secret, as the dive site is selected from 19 different dive sites in order to proved you with the best snorkel/dive conditions that can be found, based on the tide, wind, and weather.
Certified divers can make up to two dives, snorkelers have the option of doing one or two intro scuba dives on this trip. (Snorkelers book/pay for their second intro scuba dive on board.)
The Sun-Kist is the boat used by the Cairns Dive Centre for their one-day dive trips. She’s a 60-foot, single-hulled dive boat. It takes about 90 minutes to get you out to the dive sites, which lie about 38 nautical miles (64 kilometers) offshore.
While listed as having a capacity of 48 persons, Cairns Dive Centre limits the number of divers and snorkelers to 20 to assure comfort and space for all aboard. This is one of the smallest groups that you can choose to dive with on a powerboat out of Cairns.
