Guest Testimonials

"We found the boat and crew to be wonderful. We were especially impressed with the care the crew took of the divers and snorklers, the efficiency with which everyone was gotten into and out of the water, and the high quality of the equipment. We were taken to two locations, each a little different from each other and each nicely sheltered from the wind and waves. All in all a great experience." - Bob - USA

"I have been on other dive boats around Australia as well as on the Great Barrier Reef. I have never experienced anything like the friendly staff who were so competent, and knew exactly when to offer help. Without their professionalism, I am not sure we would have had either Tim or my mum in the water. My sincere thanks to the entire crew for a wonderful, wonderful day – it was the highlight of our time in Queensland." - Cheryl - Australia

"The Best Scuba Trip in a Long Time. Even with the weather being cloudy with rain, the crew was Excellent, the scuba dive sites were Exciting and the food was Great. Will recommend to all my Friends!" - Larry - USA

"The custom-built boat caters perfectly to snorkellers and divers, with plenty of room to enjoy the sun decks and air-conditioned interiors. As certified divers, it was excellent to have the choice between guided and unguided dives – we think you are one of only a few boats in Cairns to offer this. Dive briefings were excellent, as was the on-board equipment. Crew very friendly, professional and helpful. Lunch was delicious and three dives on two different dive sites and reefs, was amazing. A great day out with a brilliant operator – topped off by seeing some Humpback Whales on the homeward trip. Thanks Tusa." - Julie - Australia

"We (2 divers and 1 snorkeler) start with Tusa 6 in August for two times to great trips. The trip is very professionally run. Team members were very friendly, funny and helpful. The comfort and safety of the passengers came first at all times. Thanks so much for the great time." - Ilona - Germany

"I would like to acknowledge the professionalism of the crew in every way. Nothing more could have been done to make us feel more cared for and accepted, and the equipment, amenities, food and service were first rate. The passengers were very well informed, and the crew were all most friendly and accommodating. I believe a team like that is a strong reflection on the captain and I wish to congratulate and thank him and the company for an unforgettable day." - John - Australia

"Excellent Crew. Outstanding Service. Unforgettable Trip!" - Flora - Canada

"Even though the weather was not the best we still thoroughly enjoyed the day. The crew were amazingly friendly and helpful, especially Jen who let me tag along with her all day long snorkeling and showing me coral and fish and lots of other things. It was also great to see the captain getting out and even putting our flippers on! We didn’t realise we would enjoy the day so much, we just wanted to say a big thank you and can’t wait to go on our next trip!" - Adam & Jo - Australia

"I had the time of my life with Tusa. The Tusa team was excellent. Team members were very friendly, funny and most importantly helpful. I got sea sick on the way to the reef. Crew members were by my side to ensure that I was okay. I am not a good swimmer but still managed to go into the water twice. Instructor was with me all the time in the water to ensure I was safe and enjoyed the experience of beautiful reef. If I go back to Cairns, I will definitely go with Tusa Dive without any hesitation and I will recommend to others as well. Thank you to all the crew members to make this experience wonderful." - Vikrant - Nepal

"It was a great great great trip, for people who can either swim or not. I couldn’t swim so I did snorkeling while my husband took a dive or 2 with the diving crew. Before getting down water they instructed us all very carefully and also offered underwater photos of yours. Compared to other service provider, the price probably a little bit higher but my friend John who used to work in that field in Cairns said Tusa Dive is much safer (he explained in term of equipment they use there in Tusa). And on land they have their own shop too (which we found out after the trip on their boat). Bottom line: the crew was so friendly. U feel free to enjoy the barrier reef at your own comfort (while they still have someone to watch for your safety). Best thing: me and my instructor (Jack) found a turtle. And it WAS a trip of a lifetime." - Jessie - Finland

At Tusa diving the reef is our passion, sharing it is our obsession.
