Overview

Our totally unique operation in Port Douglas makes us the diver’s and snorkeler’s choice. We take the smallest number of passengers to many pristine areas of the outer reef systems. Well away from all of the mass market tourist operators. All of our scuba diving is privately guided and we offer free professional underwater photos of your adventures.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! What better way to spend a day with the family than snorkelling The Great Barrier Reef - and with only 12 passengers max it feels like a private charter! So pleased you had a great day -...More

We chose ABC Scuba as they had minimum passengers on boat, unlike the big commercial boats which have up to 70! We were given individual care and attention on our dives, which was great for me as a not-so confident diver. Paul, Wayne and Jay...More

ABC only does small groups, 12 divers maximum with crew of 4. Lots of help and attention from the crew. Three dive locations on the outer reefs. Beautiful coral canyons and lots of fish to see. An amazing experience. A highlight of our Australian trip.

Thank you so much! Very pleased to hear you had such a great experience with us. That sums us up nicely. Small groups, lots of beautiful reef and the lowest crew to guest ratio in Port Douglas! Thank you again, The ABC Team
