Cairns Great Barrier Reef

About T6

Launched in 2011, the TUSA 6 (T6) offers small group tours to the outer Great Barrier Reef. Custom designed for diving and snorkelling, T6 incorporates the latest technology and environmental best practices, including greater fuel efficiency through improved hull design, and a full 2 stage waste treatment plant on board.

TUSA continues the tradition of smaller passenger numbers and greater service on board the 24m T6. We limit passenger numbers to just 65 guests on each trip to ensure a premium experience for all.
