Introductory Scuba Diving from Cairns:

Introductory dives are for those who are not certified and want to experience scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.

That’s right, if you have never dived before, and have always wished to experience first-hand the beauty of the underwater world you can arrange an Introductory dive with one of our friendly and professional Instructors.

Through the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, you will be taught all the basic skills required to dive down to a depth of up to 12 metres while accompanied by one of our experienced PADI qualified instructors. Divers are broken up into small groups of 4 people, are always guided and the experience lasts up to 20 minutes giving you time to feel comfortable and begin to enjoy your first dive on the Great Barrier Reef. 

Evolution's massive back deck, combined with specially designed fold-out 'Wings' which to provide more space, comfort, and safety for our guests as they enter the water.

Lycra suits are included free of charge. Wet Suits are available for hire at $10 per person.

Add up to 3 Introductory Dives:

  • 1st Dive: $50 (pre-booked discount, usually $95)
  • 2nd Dive: $35
  • 3rd Dive: $25

Our Reef Locations:

We choose two unique outer reef locations on the day based on water clarity and weather conditions to give you the best great barrier reef trip!

Customer Feedback:

"We had the most fantastic day on the reef! The crew were amazing, so friendly and helpful! My daughter scuba dived for the first time, which she loved so much she went back a second time! They take you to 2 different reefs, both of them were beautiful. Can highly recommend this cruise, excellent value for money" - yololovetotravel via TripAdvisor
