Snorkelling Cairns' Great Barrier Reef with Tusa
Picture yourself snorkelling over magical reef gardens where the coral is pristine and the water is stunningly clear!! Great Barrier Reef snorkelling trips are an unforgettable day, so do it with the experts.
Tusa Dive have a selection of 16 unique dive and snorkel locations on the Outer Reefs for you to explore. While the divers explore the walls and depths, you’ll be gliding over the reef tops, mesmerised by the vivid colours of the fish as they dart in and out of the corals and anemones.
You’ll be provided with top diver quality masks and snorkels, booties and fins. Wetsuits, and/or lycra suits are provided for all, depending on the season, and for those who like a little extra buoyancy in the water, our ‘noodles’, or snorkel vests will help to keep you safely above the coral.
Our dedicated snorkel guide will teach you the best snorkelling techniques for viewing the spectacular coral gardens. Enjoy the freedom of snorkelling with your buddy or join our free guided snorkeling tour. The snorkelling is straight off the back of our boat, with the reef never more than a short swim away.

- Know your own ability and snorkel/swim accordingly
- Use a flotation device to reduce your physical exertion in the water
