Copyright © Great Barrier Reef EnterprisesWhat To Bring out to the Reef

Certified Divers

Whether you are going on a one-day trip, or a multi-day liveaboard, there are things you should always bring. Some of them are required, some are not, but all can make your trip much more enjoyable, comfortable, or safe. Use this list as a general guide, and be sure to revise it to suit your needs.

  • Dive log
  • Dive card
  • DAN Insurance card
  • Your travel voucher/ticket

Dive Gear - most operators will supply you with all your dive gear. Every trip listing on this web site has information telling you what is included, and what can be rented, to help you decide how much or how little dive gear you wish to bring with you.

If you are bringing your regulator, make sure it is compatible with the DIN fittings that are used on tanks down here. You can buy an adapter at your local dive shop for less than $40. We recommend you buy the adaptor at home, they sell fast here, and sometimes the shops are sold out.

  • Sunscreen: (you are in the tropics, the sun is strong.)
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • T-shirt
  • Dry change of clothes
  • Light shell or windbreaker jacket
  • Money and/or credit card for drinks, and other purchases.
  • Camera/Film (Can you keep it dry somehow? If not, leave it at home and buy a cheap waterproof camera, they even make waterproof, disposable, one-time use cameras!)
  • Towel
  • Hat
  • Motion Sickness medication
  • Shoes or sport sandals that you won’t mind getting wet. .

Multi Day Trips

  • Sufficient fast-drying clothing.
  • Sweater or sweatshirt
  • Extra towel.
  • Transformer, most boats here run 220V current, if you have anything you need to run or recharge onboard, check with us to see if you need a transformer.
  • Electric plug adapter. Even if your electrical gear runs on 220V, you will need to fit the Australian plug pattern. Look into it at a travelers supply shop, should cost less than $15.
  • Something to make life interesting for everyone on the boat, (a puzzle, card game, special snack, a couple good new jokes or stories, etc.)

Snorkellers

Copyright © Great Barrier Reef EnterprisesWhether you are going on a one-day or 10-day trip, there are things you should always bring. Some of them are required, some are not, but all can make your trip much more enjoyable, comfortable, or safe. Use this list as a general guide, and be sure to revise it to suit your needs. If you are going for a day trip pack light!

  • Your travel voucher/ticket
  • Sunscreen: (you are in the tropics, the sun is strong.)
  • Hat
  • T-shirt (If you burn easily in the sun, bring an extra one to wear while you are in the water.)
  • Sunglasses
  • Dry change of clothes
  • Light shell or windbreaker jacket
  • Money for drinks, rentals, and other purchases.
  • Camera/Film (Can you keep it dry somehow? If not, leave it at home and buy a cheap waterproof camera, they even make waterproof, disposable, one-time use cameras!)
  • Towel
  • Motion Sickness medication
  • Shoes or sport sandals that you won’t mind getting wet.

Snorkeling Gear - Nearly all dive operators will supply you with your mask, fins, and snorkel. We recommend you consider using one of the lightweight wetsuits they also offer, especially between the months of June through September, when the water temperature is in the low 70’s. Every trip description on this website tells you what is included and what can be rented on every dive trip.
