Tusa Dive Community Support
Tusa Dive encourages and supports a range of events and organisations which strengthen the community and improve the environment of our home port, Cairns in Tropical North Queensland.
We support the fundraising activities of non-profit organisations by donating Great Barrier Reef day tour travel vouchers, for use on our vessel. Each voucher is valued at $220 and is for one (1) Adult (Snorkelling Only) and valid for six (6) months from the time of issue.
We also support school students and indigenous employment training programs offering work experience placements on our vessels and provide support to marine biology university graduates with collection of data towards thesis programs.

- Community Wellbeing with a focus on events and activities assisting the needs of the disadvantaged. Tusa Dive believes in a quality of life for all people.
- Environmental Conservation with a focus on the Great Barrier Reef and marine environment research, programs and initiatives to address current or potential environmental problems.
