There are many dive and snorkel tour companies in Cairns, Australia. We have put this website together to show you our thoughts and recommendations by using our personal experiences with each of the dive companies we have been scuba diving with here in Cairns, The Great Barrier Reef.
Travel in Cairns and surrounding area’s is amazingly easy. You will find it very simple to get around the city and surrounding areas. Just recently, we did some fantastic diving from Port Douglas on the Agincourt Ribbon Reef Systems. These ribbon reefs are right out on the drop off to the Coral sea and we must say they were absolutely amazing, to say the least. We visited ‘Barracuda Bommie’, ‘Turtle Cay’ and ‘Trigger Fish City’, doing two drift dives of nearly 59 minutes each, it was fantastic!
