1-Day Great Barrier Reef Trip
Cairns Dive Centre
Book This Trip
This trip is aboard Reefkist, a 60 foot Catamaran with a maximum of 20 divers. It is for 1 day, and allows 2 dives.
Departure is from E Finger, Marlin Marina, Cairns at 9:00 AM every day, return time 5:15 AM.
We really like the fact that this trip departs at 9:00am, that's a very easy and civiilized start to a great day!
On this trip you’ll visit two of the outer reefs and dive once at each site.
The first reef visited will be an exclusive private mooring at Briggs Reef, and it's famous aptly named dive site, the "Fish Bowl".
After that it's time for lunch and a move to Sudbury Cay, a very small sand island surrounded by coral reef on all sides. The boat anchors off the Cay, and you can swim ashore and enjoy the beach there.
Divers have the opportunity to make 2 dives on this trip, snorkelers can make up to two intro scuba dives. (You can book/pay for the 2nd intro scuba dive on the day.)

Cairns Dive Centre is proud of their new boat, Reefkist. This 18-metre (60-foot) power cat makes for a stable and quick trip out to the reef. There's plenty of space on board the boat, either in the shaded or sun deck areas, or inside in the air-conditioned cabin area. While licencesed to hold up to 80 persons, Cairns Dive Centre has limited their boat to just 40 to give more plenty of space. Exits and entrances from the water are easy from the water level dive deck at the stern.
