Great Barrier Reef Day Trip

A day trip to the Great Barrier Reef is a must-do for all visitors and locals to Cairns.  TUSA Dive are Cairns’ premium reef operator, providing snorkel and dive day tours to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. With only 60 people on board their 24 metre catamaran, and a selection of 16 unique sites on the very outer reef, getting away from the crowds is what this tour is all about! You’ll be provided with top quality masks, snorkels, fins, wetsuits and/or lycra suits, and if you need a little extra buoyancy in the water, ‘noodles’ or snorkel vests are available to keep you safely above the coral. A dedicated snorkel guide will show you how to use the equipment and teach you the best techniques, and soon you’ll be snorkelling over the reef tops, mesmerised by the tropical fish and vividly colourful corals.


Morning and afternoon tea, a fresh and healthy buffet lunch, guided snorkel tour and reef interpretation presentation, stops at two reef sites per day. TUSA Dive departs Cairns’ Marlin Marina at 8am daily. For more information on TUSA Dive visit
