Tusa 6 was launched in August 2011, and is another great boat in the long series of ultra-nice dive boats that Tusa Dive has used over the years. This boat is even faster, smoother, larger and more comfortable than their last boat, and was custom built, to the exacting specifications of Tusa Dive.
Every detail has been aimed at making this the best day dive boat operating on the reef, from the comfortable seating on board, to the in water dive platforms that make entrances and exits for divers and snorkellers so easy.
