Dive Sites – The Three Sisters, The Whale, The Edge, Hoffs drop
Depth – up to 36 meters
Visibility – Up to 25+ meters

The premier dive and snorkel destination out of Cairns, Milne Reef has exceptional visibility and will impress even the most experienced diver. Popular for sites such as 3 Sisters, The Whale, The Pub, Hoffs Drop, The Edge, and The Paddock. You can expect to be awe struck by the cyclone of schooling Rock Cod, Red Bass and Chevron Baraccuda. As well as orange, purple and pink Antheas. Bright Red Tomato Clown fish, baby Royal Blue Tangs (Dory) hiding in the Staghorn and many reef sharks including our favourite friend Chip- she loves to visit us for a close encounter.

There are gorgeous shallow coral gardens, swim throughs and guaranteed turtle encounters for the snorkelers whilst divers are treated to wall dives and large swim throughs with huge Gorgonian Fans, full of dazzling Glass fish, Fusiliers and Snapper. As well as towering pinnacle structures amassed with fish life and colourful sponges, shelters to unique Nudibranch species and the sandy gardens in between are home to communities of spotted garden eels.

By night Milne Reef comes alive with Lion fish, and Red Bass looking for dinner. Cryptic shrimp, crustaceans, Cuttle fish and squid, Parrot fish in their sleep bubbles and snoozing turtles in the reef crevices with curious sharks cruising by.

One of Cairns most premier dive sites. Be sure to keep an eye out for playful dolphins and breaching whales while sailing out to Milne reef.
