Cairns Great Barrier Reef

Certified Diving on the Great Barrier Reef

Tusa Dive have more than 30 years experience in providing day tour diving for certified divers. Our history gives us access to some of the best diving locations in the Marine Park, accessible in a day trip from Cairns. We have 16 dive sites within a 50 km radius of Cairns, allowing us to choose the best two sites, for the conditions of the day. If you are interested in joining us for more than a day we can (weather permitting!), take you to two new sites each day.

During your Tusa Dive day tour you have the option of taking up to three dives at the two sites we’ll visit. Each site you dive will be unique, allowing you to explore vast coral gardens, caverns, walls and isolated pinnacles, while amazing you with the sheer diversity and colour of marine life.

Tusa Dive offer you the freedom to dive with your buddy or join a guided dive with one of our divemasters at no extra cost! Top quality scuba equipment, including dive computers, and dive quality masks, booties and fins. Wetsuits are available in all sizes, and include 3mm full length and 5mm shorties, as well as lycra suits if preferred.
