Visit two exclusive reef sites, with plenty of time to enjoy relaxing and sun bathing on three deck levels. Dial up the adventure and choose from a variety of optional activities including an Introductory dive or Certified dive. From Hastings Reef you can take a 10-minute scenic helicopter flight from our exclusive helicopter pontoon or join our Semi-Submarine tour before cruising back to Cairns.

​For First Time Divers; after an in-depth briefing from our expert dive staff, we gear you up and jump in the water for the thrill of a lifetime as we guide you through this amazing wonderland.

For Certified Divers; either buddy up with a friend or join our guides as we plunge into the abundance of marine life and explore the amazing ecology of the reef.

​In the afternoon there's a choice of a ride on our Semi-Submersible tour (weather dependent), more snorkelling or diving, or just laze around on our massive sun-decks on three levels.

Finally cruise back to Cairns while joining our on-board entertainer for some live music together with a free glass of wine, cheese and biscuits on the lower deck.
