Perfect for divers who have little time, embark for three action-packed days! You'll get to dive on the outer Great Barrier Reef without breaking the bank. With two night dives included in the 11 dives, be prepared to see some action on the reef! Beginners will get to practice their skills and finish their certification on board, while the most experienced divers will explore the sites with their buddies.
Since 1986, the dive operator has had a team of scientist divers, the Reef Biosearch, monitoring the reef. It now has the longest ongoing logbook of marine observations on the reef. It is also involved in coral reef restoration projects since 2018. Solar power is used across operations whenever possible, and a strong focus is put on waste management and phasing out plastic consumables.
For all levels of divers, beginners and more experienced divers. Non-divers can join the trip, and can even do their Open Water before and during the cruise if they want to.
