Snorkelling Cairns' Great Barrier Reef with Tusa
Picture yourself snorkelling over magical reef gardens where the coral is pristine and the water is stunningly clear!! Great Barrier Reef snorkelling trips are an unforgettable day, so do it with the experts.
Tusa Dive have a wide variety of Outer Great Barrier Reef dive and snorkel locations for you to explore. While the divers explore the walls and depths, you’ll be gliding over the reef tops, mesmerised by the vivid colours of the fish as they dart in and out of the corals and anemones.
You’ll be provided with top diver quality masks and snorkels, booties and fins. Wetsuits or lycra suits (depending on the season) are provided for all, and for those who like a little extra buoyancy in the water, our ‘noodles’, or snorkel vests will help keep you safely above the coral.
Our dedicated snorkel guide will teach you the best snorkelling techniques for viewing the spectacular coral gardens. Enjoy the freedom of snorkelling with your buddy or join our free guided snorkelling tour. The snorkelling is straight off the back of our boat, with the reef never more than a short swim away.

- Know your own ability and snorkel/swim accordingly
- Use a flotation device to reduce your physical exertion in the water
- Snorkel with a buddy or part of a guided tour
- Stay close to supervising staff or boat and signal if you need help
