Why book a scuba diving tour with reeftrip.com?
The Best Equipment All of our tours offer high quality, up to date scuba diving equipment. Got your own gear? Our friendly dive masters will assist you to set up your equipment.
Full diver briefings are given for each reef location by experienced crew with in depth knowledge of the areas and marine life which can be found.
How deep are the dive sites? As the coral on the Great Barrier Reef needs sunlight to survive and grow, the majority of good dive locations are found in relatively shallow areas. Our dive sites have an average depth range of 10-25 meters (30-80 feet). Unqualified scuba divers on Resort Dive tours are generally kept within 5 – 12 meters (15 – 36 feet). Advanced divers travelling on a liveaboard tour can expect depth ranges up to 40 meters (120 feet).
Who will I be diving with? Buddy up with another passenger or take the guided dive option, it’s your choice. If you’re travelling alone our friendly dive team will ensure you have a buddy to go diving with. If you are an un-qualified passenger trying a Resort Scuba dive, you will dive with the supervision of an experienced Dive instructor.
Guided Dives Go on a guided dive with one of our friendly and professional dive team and take all the hassle off navigating yourself! Our experienced guides will show you the best dive spots, get you back to the boat and ensure you have a fun and comfortable scuba.
