certified diving

Every mooring we visit is a diver’s delight. With 20 moorings on 9 different reef systems we can offer the certified diver amazing variety.

Our dive sites rival the best in Cairns but we travel without the crowds. Dive on pristine reefs that include Flynn, Milln, Thetford, Moore, Hastings and Norman Reefs, world famous for their natural beauty.

Whether you are newly certified or have lots of experience, our sites offer something special for everyone. Imagine diving with green and loggerhead turtles, basking sharks, barracuda and other pelagic fish in depths ranging from 6 to 36 meters. Outer Reef water visibility is rarely less than 20 meters and is frequently 30 meters or more and our world class sites feature swim-throughs, caves, drift dives, pinnacles, and vast coral gardens.

On board we have a Bauer Mariner 3200 compressor to ensure regular tank fills and quality SCUBAPRO dive gear. You can choose to dive with a guide or set out with your partner or friends on your own adventure. We give you a thorough briefing at every site.

Night and morning dives are a specialty. On Coral Sea Dreaming we have a number of anchorages which are perfect for night and early morning dives. Large coral bommies, close to the reefs edge provide an excellent environment to find sleeping turtles, parrot fish, and nocturnal wildlife. Early morning dives are also spectacular. This is feeding time for many of the pelagic fish and a great time to see them cruising. Generally, you’ll also find large shoals of schooling fish close to the coral as they feed on the remnants of night time plankton. Breakfast follows the morning dive, and nothing beats a hot coffee after a 6 am dive!

Please note: All certified divers require a valid “C” card. Queensland law also requires all divers to fill out a medical form when they arrive on the boat. Strict regulations mean some illnesses and drugs may prevent you from diving. Examples include, Asthma, Heart and Lung disease, epilepsy, diabetes, recent surgery and medications since you last had a dive medical.

If you have any questions regarding your health and diving activities, please email or phone our friendly staff. A sample medical form can be downloaded here.
