Divers Den Great Barrier Reef Liveaboard
This 3 tiered, 35 metre catamaran, is one of the most well known dive boats out of Cairns. It boasts options for snorkelers, intro divers, and certified scuba pros! No matter what your level, you’ll find something here for you.
Expect to explore up to 3 different dive and snorkel sites in the heart of the Barrier Reef. Turtles, reef sharks, and manta rays are regular favourites, so don’t forget your GoPro! Aboard, you’ll find a legendary crew that can’t do enough to make sure you’re having a great time. When you’re not in the water, you can relax out on deck and top up the tan or cruise around inside in the air-conditioned cabins. You’ll be amazed at the onboard facilities on offer (It’s literally like a floating hotel).
In the evening, we recommend either chilling out on the deck and getting into a bit of stargazing. Alternatively, if you’re chasing some more adventure, then get involved with ‘Sharks In The Dark’. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to snorkel at night with the friendly reef sharks. Take your reef experience to the next level and spend 2 full days on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Escape the crowds, take your time, and explore more.
