Great Barrier Reef Trip

Experience one of the seven wonders of the world – The Great Barrier Reef!

We’ll take you to the outer reef where you can swim, snorkel and dive in one of the most diverse eco systems in the world, with colourful hard and soft corals and awesome marine life.

Certified Divers
Due to the focus on conservation and the lower number of dive boats and tours operating from the Magnetic Island/Townsville region, we have access to some of the healthiest most pristine areas in the Great Barrier Reef.
We promise small groups and offer complimentary guides to all of our certified divers.
We offer quality rental equipment, including dive computers, 5mm full-length wetsuits or stinger suits and dive quality masks, snorkels and fins.
