The Great Barrier Reef is one of the best places on earth for snorkeling and scuba diving. This tour offers options for all ages and abilities, making it ideal for groups or families who don’t want to all do the same thing. Cruise out to the Outer Reefs, where you can choose to snorkel, take an introductory scuba dive, or enjoy up to three certified dives.
What to Expect
Make your way to the marina in Cairns to meet your guide and board the high-speed custom-built boat. Admire the views from deck and enjoy morning tea as you sail across the Coral Sea to explore the more remote Outer Reefs.

During the tour, visit three different dive sites, where you can swim and snorkel amid the vibrant coral gardens, try an introductory scuba dive accompanied by an expert instructor, or explore some of the deeper dive spots (certified divers only), depending on the tour option selected.

Along the way, look out for tropical fish, marine life, and colorful coral formations, and learn more about the Great Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its unique ecosystems from the crew. In between, relax on deck and take in the scenery as you tuck into a delicious buffet lunch.

Afternoon tea is also served on board as you sail back to Cairns.

Awesome diving experience!

They have one of the best/fastest ships with the dual hulls (like catamaran) so they can get to the dive site MUCH quicker than most of the other dive ships. One company i went on the day before was single hull and 1/2 the people...More

I absolutely agree with the above. Also you need to consider that if you have a medical problem, having ignored the safety guidelines, that might well invalidate your insurance.
