Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Scubapro, a 75 foot Mono Hull with a maximum of 25 divers. It is for 3 days, 2 nights, and allows 9 dives, plus 2 night dives.
Departure is from Your Cairns lodging (free pickup), Cairns at 7:00 AM Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, return time 3:30 PM.
This trip is a good choice for those seeking the liveaboard trip with all the details taken care of. On this trip youíll make 11 dives, including two night dives. The trip visits at least two of the following reefs: Thetford, Flynn, Milln, and Pellowe. The latter three are on the very eastern edge of the Great Barrier Reef, and all offer excellent diving. The company uses 16 moorings and the captain chooses the dive sites of the day based on the tides and other factors, with an eye towards providing both excellent diving and a comfortable on-board experience.
There is a long list of "includeds" on this trip, many of which are available only at extra cost, if at all, on other trips. Transfers to/from your Cairns lodging, long-legged wetsuits, and comprehensive dive insurance are amongst them. (Check the list below for a full accounting.)

The Scubapro I, II, and III make a fine set of triplets! These identical boats are fast, comfortable purpose-built dive boats. Each has 14 twin and 2 double cabins, with 8 bathrooms with an overnight capacity of 32 divers. The boats are air conditioned throughout.
These boats are all new, having been built in '98 and '02 and '04. ProDive's maintenance of these boats has kept all three in great shape; you have to look at the name on the hull to tell them apart! They can cruise out to the reef at 13 knots, and make for a quick and stable dive platform.
