Discover the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef on a day trip from Cairns with Divers Den. Embark on a 90-minute boat trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef where you'll spend five hours exploring two stunning dive sites carefully selected from our exclusive moorings at Norman, Saxon, and Hastings reefs. Encounter vibrant corals, playful Nemos, turtles, stingrays, and majestic Maori Wrasse amidst diverse marine life. The vessel, AquaQuest, is purpose-built for diving and snorkelling, featuring a spacious dive deck and sunken platform for easy water access, along with state-of-the-art equipment. Relax on expansive sun decks, cool off in air-conditioned indoor spaces, and freshen up with hot showers after your morning exploration. Refuel with a generous buffet lunch including hot and cold dishes, salads, rolls, and tropical fruits, preparing you for an afternoon of continued discovery on the Great Barrier Reef.
