One-Day Great Barrier Reef Trip
Down Under Dive

© Down Under Dive

Book This Trip

This trip is aboard Evolution, a 120 foot Mono Hull with a maximum of 80 divers. It is for 1 day, and allows 3 dives.

Departure Information
Departure is from Marlin Jettty, Cairns at 8:30 AM every day, return time 5:00 PM.

The Dive

This trip starts with a quick 75 minute ride out to one of the four reefs that Evolution visits (Norman, Hastings, Saxon and Michaelmas Reefs). During the day you will dive on two of these reefs. Due to the quick trip out divers will have time to make three scuba dives. First time reef visitors should take the optional tour in the semi-submersible boat, a high tech version of a glass bottomed boat, which gives great views of what's up underwater. (We hope you'll be encouraged by the amazing sights to put some gear and get wet!)

This is one of just two dive boats with live musical entertainment on board, which makes for a unique and festive atmosphere! This trip is especially popular with young backpackers, and families or the less young-at-heart may find other trips more suitable.

The typical composition of a group on this trip is 1/5 divers and 4/5 snorkelers. About half of the snorkelers take an introductory scuba dive. © Down Under Dive

The Boat

Launched in 2016, Evolution is one of the new, fast, stable and comfortable boats operating in the Cairns reef fleet.

This boat holds up to 130 guests, and has all the new stablity features that make for the fastest, smoothest trip to the reef possible.

We like the variety of spaces where you can hang out; there are large air-conditioned lounges, shaded decks and sun decks. The dive deck is well organized, and has a number of large water level platforms to make for fast easy and uncrowded exits and entrances to the water.
