My boyfriend and me took the tour to the Great Barrier Reef with two introductory dives. He is a certified diving teacher but for me it was the first time. I can highly recommend Tusa. The instructor explained everything in great detail and made me feel very save, even though I was scared in the beginning. The whole experience was very professional. In addition, they showed us two different reefs which were really beautiful. I think it is perfect that they choose the locations based on the current weather conditions. The food was good as well and the whole crew really nice. I can only recommend this tour, especially for first time divers. The boat is also one of the smaller ones which I think is a lot better than having 200 people on the boat.

This was a wonderful experience. Very experienced dive crew which took good care of us. We only did snorkeling and in retrospect we should have done the guided diving. Diving at the Great Barrier Reef is definitively something which should be on everyones bucket list. Ill gladly do it again. We only missed to see sharks - maybe next time. Go for it.

My family and I wanted to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef. On holiday in Cairns we weren’t sure which tour to choose from other than through reviews. We are beyond happy that Tusa 6 was chosen. From the moment we stepped on board until the moment we departed back in Cairns we felt welcomed, entertained by a “serendipitous” crew and taken to two reefs that were spectacular! We saw so many types of fish and coral that were magical. For all those wanting a great day at sea, this excursion is probably the best you could ever expect! Thanks to everyone and especially Emma for being a great guide!
