Deep Sea Divers Den offers Great Barrier Reef Snorkel and Dive Tours out of Cairns. The 5 Star PADI Instructor Development Centre operates 1 – 4 day trips aboard their purpose-built vessel OceanQuest. The 35 metre catamaran has 18 twin and 4 double cabins with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. There’s plenty of room to spread out on OceanQuest over three decks with a spacious dive deck, large open sundecks and hot, fresh water showers. All delicious meals are prepared by the onboard chef, including hearty breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Enjoy a well-deserved dessert treat after your day in the water!
The Great Barrier Reef trips are truly a remarkable adventure. With more than 14 permanent moorings at Saxon and Norman reefs, and selected sights at Hastings Reef, snorkellers and divers of all levels can explore the reef and its diverse marine life from early morning to night.
During the months of June and July, four-day, four-night Minke whale expeditions operate. Expeditions are open to both snorkellers and divers, with whale interactions strictly controlled. Dwarf Minke whales grow up to 8 metres (26 feet) long, and a closeup encounter with these majestic 6-tonne creatures is an experience you will never forget.
Minkes often approach snorkellers, divers and boats, so there is every chance to see them close up. The success rate for close sightings over the peak season is over 90%, and your interaction with the whales could last two hours or more!
