The Great Barrier Reef is a Marine Park and World Heritage area. It is recognized as one of the world's most unique and amazing marine spectacles and extends for 2300 kilometers along the northeastern coast of Australia. It consists of about 2900 individual reefs and covers an area the size of the United Kingdom. Its ecosystem supports the greatest concentration of life on this planet with its resident marine life including 1,500 species of fish, 350 different kinds of coral, 4000 species of mollusks and 10,000 species of sponges. It also provides breeding areas for humpback whales, sea turtles dugong and seabirds. Hundreds of species of algae, including seaweeds, also live on the reef as a vital part of the reef system.
The Cairns region is a major destination for backpackers from around the world. As the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree rainforest, Cairns is an excellent spot for adventure travellers to base themselves. Cairns is the starting point for extended travel in the region including trips to the Daintree Rainforest and Cape York, the Atherton Tableland and Mission Beach area. As a popular tourism destination, there are a range of accommodation options and backpacker tours available in the region.
Early morning on the day of departure you will be picked up at your
hotel - free pick-ups are available from Cairns City and Northern
Beaches only. The boat will set out the first day serving a light
breakfast before the first dive. The first dive is followed by lunch and
then a second dive. The afternoon calls for snacks, relaxing in the sun
or snorkeling on the reef followed by the third dive, a late afternoon
dive. A night dive is optional and can be done after dinner as the
fourth dive of the day. On day 2 and 3 your schedule won’t change much
from day 1, only difference is the lack of a night dive on day 3 since
this is the time when you will be departing the boat back in the port of
Carins. There will be no refund on dives not used.

Boat departures every day except Tuesday
The dives are not guided, but are done in buddy teams. All dives are
thoroughly briefed by the dive guides. The dive guides will work as
surface support only. But not to worry, if you hold a PADI Open
Water certificate or equivalent, you are qualified enough for the dives.
They are shallow and easy. If you are not confident enough, we suggest
you sign up for the PADI Advanced Course on this trip instead. Then you
will be bringing an instructor on board and slowly conduct your way
through to the Advanced certificate. Win Win!
