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.

This locally owned company is also one of the largest dive schools in Cairns, and trained over 6.500 divers last year.
