Seastar Cruises Launches New Dive Boat in Cairns

The Cairns marina is home to a fleet that includes some pretty amazing dive boats. The newest member of the fleet is the Seastar, just launched this past month.

This beautiful new boat is 80 ft long, and makes the trip out to Seastar's dive sites in under an hour. © Seastar The boat is fast and stable, with lots of shaded and air-conditioned cabin space.

Seastar Cruises has always prided itself on offering a very unique and personal trip, and they are changing their operations to enhance the small group experience that they have always provided.

We like the fact that the owners limit the numbers on board to just 40 persons, well under the capacity of the boat; that means there is heaps of space on board. With a faster boat they can leave a little less early, but still be the first boat to visit Michaelmas Cay, so snorkelers and birdwatchers have it all to themselves. This trip is the A-list trip for birdwatchers that want to combine a great reef trip with a chance to see tropical seabird species.

A faster trip out also means more time can be spent at Michaelmas Cay as well as Seastarís other dive mooring on Hastings Reef; visitors will now spend over 5 hours out on the reef.
