About the Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world, composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for 2,600km (1,600 mi) along the coast of Queensland, in Australia’s Coral Sea. Labeled as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, and a World Heritage listed region, visitors come from all over the planet to visit this incredible icon… Our Great Barrier Reef.

In the day trip, Tusa Dive visit selected reefs within a 50km (35 mi) radius from Cairns. Tusa’s 16 sites are scattered on the reefs lying close to the edge of the continental shelf, where the best visibility and most spectacular corals can be found. Each day the skipper will choose two sites to maximise diving and snorkelling for the day’s conditions. If you join Tusa for more than one day, you will visit new sites each day (conditions permitting).

Tusa Dive’s professional and friendly dive crew are on hand throughout the day to assist you in every way, and can provide education about the reef, as well as instruction for snorkelling, first time “introductory scuba diving” (PADI Discover Scuba course), PADI Courses, and PADI Open Water courses.

For divers looking for more than a day trip, multi-day scuba packages are available for day touring and Tusa 6’s big sister, the Spirit of Freedom provides 3 to 7 day liveaboard diving expeditions to the iconic dive destinations of the Cod Hole and Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea.
