Divers Den day trip

Embark on an Unforgettable Great Barrier Reef Adventure with Divers Den

Set sail from Cairns on an exhilarating 90-minute fast catamaran ride with Divers Den, as we transport you to two awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef sites at Norman, Saxon, or Hastings Reefs. Renowned for their vibrant coral gardens and incredible diversity of marine life, you'll have the opportunity to encounter clownfish, turtles, parrotfish, reef sharks, stingrays, and giant Maori wrasse in their natural habitat.

Our expert team caters to both certified and introductory divers, ensuring an unforgettable experience for everyone. With five hours at the reef, you'll have ample time to enjoy up to three dives or snorkel sessions at two distinct sites, immersing yourself in the wonders of the underwater world.

The AquaQuest vessel, specifically designed for diving and snorkeling, features a spacious dive deck and a sunken platform for easy water access, as well as cutting-edge equipment to enhance your experience.

When you're ready for a break, unwind on the expansive sun decks or in the air-conditioned indoor spaces. AquaQuest also offers hot freshwater showers for your comfort. Refuel after a morning of exploration with a generous buffet lunch, featuring an assortment of hot and cold foods, salads, rolls, and tropical fruit, ensuring you're energized for the afternoon's activities.

As an Advanced Ecotourism Certified operator, Divers Den is committed to sustainable practices and the preservation of the Great Barrier Reef for future generations.

Please note that the minimum age for scuba diving is 12 years, and certain medical conditions may apply. Join Divers Den for an extraordinary Great Barrier Reef experience that you'll treasure for years to come.
