If you don't have the time to do a live aboard trip, or simply don't wish to stay overnight on the reef, you may wish to book a day trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

For the certified diver, we offer dive guides for the inexperienced. Alternatively we can find you a buddy if you don't have one and wish to dive unguided.

You may want to just snorkel or try an introductory scuba dive. An introductory scuba dive (also called Discover Scuba Diving) offers you the opportunity to explore the underwater world with a scuba dive instructor. The program is very easy and requires no previous experience.

There are a variety of choices regarding day trips. Some trips cater specifically for divers, others for families and have fixed pontoons they moor up to at the Reef. Others are slower sailing boats that have less passengers, and offer a more relaxing day, and great snorkelling, but may not be suitable for the experienced diver. So if not sure, please feel free to contact us for some friendly advice.


We are glad to offer great discounts off the RRP prices for all bookings.

This discount is shown on our booking forms.

A deposit is required at the time of booking, with the balance paid on the day of departure.

Please check availability with us before booking.

If you dont see a trip here you like then please contact us as we specialise in finding the right trip for you. All these trips visit the Outer Barrier Reef unless otherwise noted.
