Tusa Dive Day Reef Trips

Dive and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef with Cairns’ expert reef operators. Tusa Dive are Cairns local day dive operators with more than 30 years experience, and access to more than 16 unique sites on the outer Great Barrier Reef.

You will cruise to the outer reef on board one of Cairns’ newest reef crafts, Tusa’s T6, which was custom-built for ultimate comfort and easy access to the water. Passengers numbers are limited to just 60 to ensure plenty of space, and our friendly crew will ensure your day is fun, safe and memorable. Two new sites are selected each day, as being the best for the day’s conditions. This provides guests with a whole new underwater adventure daily. Activities include marine interpretation presentations, guided snorkel tours, introductory diving, and certified diving with up to 3 dives in the day available.

Tusa Dive is an Advanced Ecotourism Operator, committed to providing a service that reflects our responsibility to contribute to the protection of our environment.
